This joint venture with LG Chem will allow GM to produce advanced battery cells in the nearly 27.9 hectare plant in Lordstown, with the goal of reducing battery costs to accelerate EV adoption and ultimately benefit customers.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, product development work on GM's future EV and Autonomous Vehicle portfolios continues to progress at a rapid pace. The Cadillac Lyriq show car will debut virtually on 7 August 2020, introducing the next chapter of the brand. Production timing remains on track for the Lyriq and GMC Hummer EV, both of which will be powered by the Ultium battery system.
