GM to invest $325M in Warren Transmission plant to support production of future electric vehicle components

General Motors said it will invest $325 million in tools and equipment at its at Warren (Michigan) Transmission plant to support production of future electric vehicle components. Timing for the project was not disclosed.

The plant in suburban Detroit has 679 total employees, most of whom produce transmissions for the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia crossovers and the Chevrolet Malibu sedan. The 2.1 million square-foot plant, equivalent to the area of 15 city blocks, produced more than 338,000 transmissions in 2010.

While we aren’t sharing many details about this product, I can tell you that this investment demonstrates how GM, working with our UAW partners, continues to innovate and bring new electrification solutions to our customers.

Nice to see given the emerging scandal of Fisker getting over $500 million in Dept of Energy money then turning around and building their cars in Finland because no sites in the U.S. were "suitable".
