After announcing the name change of its Detroit-Hamtramck plant to Factory Zero, GM (General Motors) announces a $ 2 billion investment in its plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee, to change it so that it can produce electric vehicles.
This amount is practically the same as that injected into the Detroit-Hamtramck plant – $ 2.2 billion. The GMC Hummer EV will be built there, along with the derivative SUV that will follow. The Cadillac Lyriq SUV will be assembled in Tennessee.

Once these two plants are operational, General Motors will have three facilities that will manufacture electric vehicles in the United States; the Chevrolet Bolt is currently assembled at the Orion plant in Michigan.
The Spring Hill plant will still be where the Cadillac XT5 and XT6 are assembled, but the GMC Acadia will see its production shifted to the Lansing Delta Township, Michigan plant. General Motors has not specified when it plans to begin production of the Lyriq.

GM plans to bring 20 new electric vehicles to market by 2023, including those recently unveiled. An electric vehicle inspired by the Cadillac Escalade is in the works, along with an SUV the size of the Cadillac XT4. The Cadillac Celestiq, a luxury sedan that will be assembled by hand, is also on the program. The SUV variant of the Chevrolet Bolt, an electric pickup truck from Chevrolet, as well as SUVs from Buick are also in the company's sights.
The creation of multiple electric vehicles is largely made possible by GM's modular platform for electric vehicles, as well as the Ultium battery system. This platform allows the manufacturer to easily reconfigure the batteries for different vehicles.
