GM to invest $800 million to convert existing facility into Canada’s first large-scale commercial EV plant

by Jan 26, 2021

General Motors plans to bring production of its recently announced BrightDrop electric light commercial vehicle, the EV600. The nearly $800 million (C$1 billion) investment will support GM’s timing to deliver BrightDrop EV600 in late 2021. The investment will enable GM to convert CAMI into Canada’s first large-scale electric delivery vehicles manufacturing plant. Work to convert the Ingersoll assembly plant to EV production will begin immediately. The plant currently produces the Chevrolet Equinox, which is being phased out in 2023. GM says it expects to deliver the first of its electric delivery vans to customers by the end of the year. Link to the news:
