As mentioned above, the Ultium Cells Lordstown manufacturing plant plays a critical role in GM’s commitment to an all-electric future, which includes the production of battery cells that will be used by Ultium-powered vehicles, such as the Cadillac Lyriq, Cruise Origin, GMC Hummer EV, Chevy Silverado EV, and the GMC Sierra EV. Other models include a Bow Tie-built EV compact crossover. In fact, about 40 percent of GM’s U.S. product portfolio will consist of battery-powered vehicles by the end of 2025.
Since 2009, GM has invested more than $3.3 billion in Ohio, and paid more than $450 million in taxable wages to employees in the state during 2019. GM currently has more than 3,800 employees stationed in Ohio.
In addition, GM has continued its commitment to the Lordstown community by working closely with Lordstown Motors Corp. since May 2019 to support the launch of its Endurance pickup. The acquisition of Lordstown Motors by DiamondPeak Holdings Corp. is expected to close during the fourth quarter and the company will be listed on the Nasdaq. GM is investing $75 million in the company, which includes the sale of the former Lordstown Assembly plant and production equipment.
