In a press release published Friday, GM confirmed plans to announce the location of its fourth U.S.-based Ultium Cells battery manufacturing plant in the near future. While GM has yet to say where this facility will be located, a report from Reuters indicates the plant will be constructed about an hour and a half east of Chicago in New Carlisle, Indiana.

A spokesperson for Ultium Cells LLC confirmed to Reuters that the company is “developing a competitive business case for a potential large investment that could be located in New Carlisle, Indiana,” and that it has applied to receive tax breaks for the investment.

This is very surprising, and tells me GM is also planning a brand new Assembly plant near by. GM talked about a 3rd BT1vehicle assembly plant announcement coming soon last year, but then went quiet on this. I am now thinking that 3rd BT1 Assembly plant will end up somewhere around this battery plant. I do not see GM converting the current truck plant in Ft Wayne Indiana to EV, because that truck plant is so efficient, and fully utilized already.

A vote on a proposal/approval for the construction of the Ultium plant in New Carlisle Ind. has been delayed 2 weeks by the St. Joseph County Council as changes are being made and a new vote is scheduled for the 27th.
