GM to invest nearly $800m to bring EV output to Ontario Plant

  • GM announced the creation of BrightDrop, a wholly-owned company, earlier this week.

General Motors will invest nearly $800 million to bring production of its BrightDrop EV600 electric vehicle to its CAMI manufacturing plant in Ontario, Canada.

The investment will convert the factory into a large-scale electric delivery vehicle manufacturing plant to support GM’s timing to deliver the EV600 in late 2021, the company said in a statement.

The agreement is subject to ratification with union Unifor and confirmation of government support.
