General Motors has announced new investments for two of their plants today.

 

The Spring Hill manufacturing complex in Tennesse will see the largest of these two investments. A total of $788.7 million will go towards a new high-efficiency engine program and modernizing vehicle production. The investment will bring forth 792 new jobs and retaining 16. The Detroit News reports that GM is keeping quiet on what on the new engine program.

 

“This investment will help GM and our workforce continue to put the customer at the center of everything we do, providing them with powertrain solutions to meet their changing needs. Today’s announcement reinforces our absolute faith in this facility, and our strong commitment to this community and the state of Tennessee,” said Arvin Jones, GM North America manufacturing manager in a statement.

 

GM will also invest $118 million into the Bay City Powertrain plant in Michigan, creating 29 jobs and retaining 67. The investment will be used to support the new engine program in Spring Hill.

I like this, much clearer in what is created and retained compared to the FORD investment info.

I am hoping this allows GM to finally scale out the VOLT powertrain for use in far more auto's. The VOLT powertrain should be in everything especially in trucks and SUVs. This would greatly bump up GM MPG average and greatly reduce the green house gas production.
