GM is investing $2 billion in its Spring Hill plant for new EV production

GM's Spring Hill Manufacturing facility has produced some of the automaker's best vehicles, and now its going to be producing EVs

1y ago

GM's Spring Hill, Tennessee plant has produced a long list of vehicles that have become cash crops for the automaker. When the plant opened in July of 1990, it began producing Saturns, and the fact that you can still find Saturns on the roadways in the US is a testament to the quality of the vehicles produced from this plant. Currently the plant produces the Cadillac XT5, XT6 and GMC Acadia.

GM announced on Monday that the Spring Hill plant would be receiving a $2 billion upgrade to produce the Cadillac Lyriq alongside the XT5 and XT6. As part of this deal, GMC Acadia production will be moving to the Lansing Delta Township assembly plant alongside its platform siblings, the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave.

That would mean that Spring Hill is returning to its roots of being a factory producing vehicles for a single division for GM. It is also going to be producing some of the most high-tech and modern vehicles GM currently makes, the XT6 is brilliant and the Lyriq looks like something straight out of Cyberpunk 2077.

The $2 billion investment comes in the form of expansions to the paint and body shops, upgraded conveyors, controls, tooling and other general assembly upgrades.

The Cadillac Lyriq is expected to be launched for the 2023 model year, but the renovations are starting immediately according to GM.

  • It's just nice to read a story about a U.S. manufacturing facility that's getting repurposed instead of being closed. I hope the cars to be built there reflect well on the brand and live long, useful lives on the roads.

  • This is great for my hometown. That said, this expansion will make the already horrendous traffic even worse.

  • More china LI batteries that need special equipment to put out when they catch fire.

    Yeah, thats good for the environment....

    I’ll keep my older cars going vs putting them in a landfill, much greener then buying one of these. ( remember where the electricity comes from...)

    • Actually, GM and LG Chem are currently building a battery cell production facility in Lordstown, Ohio. Once that factory is completed, it will supply the batteries for GM's new EVs
