GM confirms it is looking at building a second battery factory beyond the one it is presently building in Ohio near its former Lordstown Assembly plant.
“General Motors and LG Energy Solutions via the Ultium Cells LLC joint venture are exploring the feasibility of constructing a second state-of-the-art battery cell manufacturing plant in the United States," said Dan Flores, GM spokesman. "We hope to have a decision on the potential project in the first half of 2021.”
“GM has said they will build EVs at Spring Hill so it makes sense to build a battery factory there,” said Sam Abuelsamid, principal analyst at Guidehouse Insights in Detroit.
GM and its partner LG Energy Solutions are in discussions for tax incentives with this state and eyeing other locations for future battery plants.
