GM says plant set to close will produce electric cars

AFP, Detroit

A General Motors manufacturing plant that was set to close will instead get a new life producing electric trucks and SUVs, the company announced on Monday The US auto giant announced a massive restructuring in 2018 that would have slashed 15 percent of its workforce to save $6 billion, a move criticized by President Donald Trump as “nasty” because it would have required shuttering several manufacturing facilities in North America.

The Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant in Michigan was scheduled to close as part of that plan, but now will get an overhaul and start rolling out two new electric vehicles (EV) starting in late 2021: a pickup truck and the Cruise Origin autonomous shuttle vehicle, the company announced. “Our electric vehicle plan is unmatched in the industry,” GM President Mark Reuss said at a press conference in Detroit.
