GM expected to announce electric vehicle for Tennessee plant

DETROIT (AP) — General Motors is expected to reveal that it will build the Cadillac Lyriq electric SUV at its factory in Spring Hill, Tennessee, when it makes a major manufacturing announcement Tuesday. The Detroit automaker says it plans an online announcement Tuesday morning, but it declined further comment. On Friday, Gerald Johnson, GM’s head of global manufacturing, said the factory for the Lyriq would be announced this week. The consulting firm LMC Automotive predicts that the Lyriq, the company’s first electric SUV, will be built in Spring Hill. That means Spring Hill is likely to be the company’s third electric vehicle factory. LMC Senior Vice President Jeff Schuster says he expects GM to build other electric vehicles at Spring Hill as well.
