The company is also planning an overhaul worth $2 billion of its Orian Township assembly plant situated in the north of Detroit that will manufacture next-generation electric vehicles. Documents show that GM wants to build a battery cell producing factory in nearby Delta Township that could give employment to around 1,700 people by 2028.

The auto major said in a statement that it was "developing business cases for potential future investments in Michigan," but that "these projects are not approved and securing all available incentives will be critical for any business case to continue moving forward." Michigan state lawmakers are moving forward towards approval of the plans in order to boost the state's ability to win new electric vehicle and battery plant investments. GM chief executive Mary Barra stated that a decision on new plants in Michigan and elsewhere could be ‘weeks away.’
