Ground prep has begun on the new electric vehicle battery cell facility in Lordstown. The new battery cell facility is a joint venture between General Motors and LG Chem for cell manufacturing. GM and LG Chem have called the joint venture Ultium Cells LLC.
During the pandemic, product development work on GM’s future EV and AV portfolios continues to progress at a rapid pace. The Cruise Origin was revealed in San Francisco earlier this year, and production timing remains on track for the yet-to-be-revealed Cadillac Lyriq and GMC HUMMER EV, all powered by the Ultium battery system.
