Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and General Motors officials announced Tuesday that the automaker will invest nearly $2 billion in its Spring Hill manufacturing plant to build fully electric vehicles, including the all-new, luxury Cadillac LYRIQ.
This announcement adds to the more than $2.3 billion GM has invested in the Spring Hill manufacturing plant since 2010.
The Spring Hill plant will be GM’s third electric vehicle manufacturing site, and the first outside of the state of Michigan. Through this investment, GM’s Spring Hill paint and body shops will undergo major expansions, and general assembly will receive comprehensive upgrades.
Renovation and construction will begin immediately. In addition to the new, fully electric Cadillac LYRIQ, traditionally powered Cadillac products, including the XT6 and XT5, will continue to be built in Spring Hill.
