GM Creating 1,000 Jobs in Michigan to Support Vehicle Electrification
"GM is going to lead the industry in the adoption of various vehicle electrification technologies, whether it's electric vehicles with extended-range capability, like the Chevrolet Volt, or the recently introduced eAssist technology that will debut on the 2012 Buick LaCrosse," said GM CEO Dan Akerson. "We want to give our customers energy choices other than petroleum and to make the automobile part of the solution when it comes to the environment."
GM has made significant investments in its advanced battery centers. It invested $336 million at the Detroit-Hamtrack assembly plant and $43 million at the Brownstown Township, Michigan, battery pack plant. Its largest and most technologically advanced battery systems lab is located at the Warren, Michigan, Technical Center.
Suppliers and organizations such as LG Chem, DTE Energy, the University of Michigan, and Wayne State University, are helping GM invest in these jobs.
