As reported last night, General Motors North American President Mark Reuss has officially announced that the company plans on building the next generation Chevrolet Impala at the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant along with the next generation Malibu, Volt and Opel Ampera. The facility will also see and additional $69 million in tooling and equipment to support next generation Impala production.
The addition of both the new Impala and Malibu will add around 2,500 hourly and salaried jobs, but as stated before, the
1,000 1,350 workers who are currently laid off get first dibs. The company is expected to reach out to those workers by September. And while the Malibu production is slated to begin at the plant early next year, the new Impalas will not be rolling out until 2013.
