GM To Invest $2.2 Billion At Detroit Factory For Electric Trucks, SUVs

"General Motors Co will invest $2.2 billion in its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant to build electric trucks and sport utility vehicles, a move that would create 2,200 jobs, the No.1 U.S. automaker said on Monday.

The company said its first electric truck will be a pickup, whose production will begin late next year and will be followed by a self-driving vehicle, Cruise Origin.

GM last week unveiled a prototype of a driverless vehicle for ride-sharing service."
