GM and LG Chem prepare ground at new electric vehicle battery cell facility in Lordstown

General Motors and LG Chem have started to prepare the ground at their new electric vehicle battery cell facility in Lordstown. 

The two companies have established a joint venture called “Ultium Cells” for the battery cell manufacturing business.

Construction has started with ground prep activities for the future site of the Ultium battery cell manufacturing facility in Lordstown.

The Lordstown Complex was a General Motors automobile factory in Lordstown, Ohio near Youngstown, comprising three facilities: Vehicle Assembly, Metal Center, and Paint Shop.

During the coronavirus 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.
