GM will invest $88m at Lansing Grand River plant image

General Motors says it will invest $88 million in a Cadillac factory in Lansing, Michigan.

The investment will be used for equipment and tooling for a new model. The $88 million is part of GM’s $2 billion investment in its U.S. plants that will yield 4,000 jobs at 17 facilities in eight states.

The unnamed vehicle will be made at the factory, in addition to the Cadillac CTS, and a new small as yet unnamed Cadillac to begin production next year, said GM spokeswoman Erin Davis.

Davis said she could not comment on the type of vehicle that will be made or when production will begin.
The investment is part of GM’s previously announced plan to invest $2 billion in 17 U.S. plants.

Previously GM announced in October that it will spend $190 million to build a new small Cadillac at the Lansing Grand River plant, adding 600 jobs and a second shift.
