GM Investing $2.2 Billion To Build Electric, Self-Driving Vehicles

General Motors plans to invest $2.2 billion in a Detroit plant to produce a variety of all-electric trucks and SUVs followed by a shared, electric self-driving vehicle.

The vehicles, including the automaker’s first all-electric truck, will be made at the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant.

The Cruise Origin, a shared, electric, self-driving vehicle unveiled in San Francisco last week, will be produced there as well, according to the company.

“GM is taking a big step forward in making our vision of an all-electric future a reality,” stated Mark Reuss, GM president. “Our electric pickup will be the first of multiple electric truck variants we will build at Detroit-Hamtramck over the next few years.”

    If they were smart, they would take a poll of people visiting the dealerships and ask if they have interest in those vehicles.  Get a high school kid with a clipboard. Bet they would not expect the results to be mostly negative.  Save them a few billion though

    Countless studies support your point about consumer desires, Mark.
