    President Biden attends GM's Factory ZERO Grand Opening November 17th 2021

      Factory Zero, aka the previous GM Detroit-Hamtramck has finished construction and will finally Grand Open as GM's first Zero Emission auto production assembly plant.


    Today GM announced their excitement to have President Biden attend the Grand Opening of Factory Zero Wednesday November 17th 2021.

    In the heart of Detroit and Hamtramck Michigan, GM's first all-electric assembly plant, the culmination of GM's multibillion-dollar U.S. investment in people, products and modernized processes. These electric trucks, SUVs and autonomous vehicles built at Factory ZERO will transform GM and the auto industry as the move is on to emission free auto's.

    GM has looked for ways to move forward using their existing assembly plants and retraining their workforce and with that the local people of Hamtramck, Michigan has seen this modern evolution from a century old company.

    Officially the start of full production with the Hummer Truck by GMC will happen on November 17th 2021, but there has been plenty of mule production runs to work out the assembly kinks. With this official grand open GM is on track to deliver Hummer Trucks to customers by the end of the year if not sooner. Look for the newest Hummer in your neighborhood soon.

    My local GMC dealer has yet to make any of the EV dealer upgrades, so it'll be interesting to see if deliveries are held up from that regard.

    One of the upgrades is new hydraulic lifts capable to handling the Hummer's massive weight- can't work on some aspects of repairs without a lift.

    I hope that once production actually starts, customers can get some affordable BEVs not just EV Hummers at $100K.

    Supposedly we will see in January at the 2022 CES show the Chevrolet and GMC EV Trucks to battle with Ford. GM has stated they will be very competitive in the prices. 

    Hopefully a decent FRUNK like Ford has and equal spec's.

    This is what they need to do when you have companies like Rivian and Lucid who never even delivered a car worth more than Ford or GM.   Investors only care about EV's but I don't know how the masses are going to afford them at the prices they are at now.

    • This is good stuff, I am glad Ford is expanding and helping the push to eV, the faster we go all EV and EV costs come down the better.  Also it is good they are investing the education side, because this country as a whole needs more people in Manufacturing, auto repair, auto body repair and trades in general.  We kind of got away from making things here and a lot of the people doing trade jobs are older, once they retire we are screwed if there aren't young people doing it too. 2 million EV's by 2026, Tesla is already there.  GM and Ford will probably have a good battle for #2 EV maker, what I don't see from Ford is the volume vehicles outside of F150, which the Lightning as it now is far outsold by the ICE version.  Mach-E isn't a volume product, Ford needs the $30k Escape EV that can sell huge numbers.  Lincoln is a dead brand, you aren't getting volume there.  Ford could do well with pickups and vans for the commercial market.
    • @surreal1272 Common Man, your popping his conspiracy bubble of false narrative about pricing on items that are not Tesla or Mercedes AMG Fan boy crazy prices cause an American Company has built auto's that are collectors items. 🤣 Here is just a portion of what I found in my neck of the woods and I see no price reduction like SMK is saying.
    • Good lord. Did you miss the limited production part of the Demon or do you somehow think there will be millions of them 20 years from now? It should be noted that the other cars you mentioned are all less than 20 years old too so maybe (skipping the fact that I routinely see CTS-V Wagons going for right at their original sticker with low miles), pick a spot and sitka with it because you can't have it both ways. A low mile limited production Demon will fetch above original price 20 years from now. They start at $69K and the Redeye starts at $76K so...go ahead and explain this...   And this...
    • Ouch another FORD Recall. They forgot to put in the proper circuit to allow Trailer Towing. Recall Alert: The 2023 Ford Maverick Can’t Tow (msn.com)
    • Used Hellcats right now are $50-85k for the most part, nothing is going to make those go up in value.  So I don’t see the last call demon selling for like $200k 20 years from now when there will be a ton of cheap hellcats and prior demons out there All the prior CTS-V’s, Camaros, Shelby Mustangs all depreciated.
