LORDSTOWN — The Lordstown Village Planning Commission on Monday approved a cell plant site plan for Ultium Cells LLC, the General Motors and LG Chem joint venture for battery cell manufacturing.
Work on the site began in mid-April. This is the final permit required before concrete can be poured and underground piping is installed.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, product development work on GM’s future EV and AV portfolios continues to progress, according to a news release. 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, according to the release.
