GM has proposed building a $2.5 billion battery plant near Lansing with partner LG Energy Solution, the documents show.
The largest U.S. automaker is separately considering a $2 billion overhaul of its Orion Township assembly plant north of Detroit to build next-generation electric vehicles. The total investments could top $4 billion, a source familiar with the plan told Reuters.
Documents posted by the city of Lansing show GM is considering building a battery cell manufacturing plant in nearby Delta Township that could employ 1,700 people by 2028. The Lansing City Council is expected to consider the proposal on Monday.
