GM's CAMI plant in Ingersoll, ON

General Motors has announced it will build batteries for its Ultium EVs at a plant in Ingersoll, Ontario, starting next year.

The automaker already builds its BrightDrop electric commercial vans at the CAMI site, but it says it will be building a 400,000-square-foot facility dedicated to battery modules for the vans as well as other Ultium EVs manufactured elsewhere. GM says the move will not only increase its EV production capacity, but also bring 300 new jobs to the area.

“Our CAMI plant is playing a critical role in accelerating GM’s all-electric future,” said Marissa West, president and managing director, GM Canada. “In addition to being Canada’s first large-scale EV manufacturing plant, soon the team will add EV battery module assembly to the site, demonstrating innovation, flexibility, and opportunity during this historic time of transformation in the industry.
