GM to build the new Cadillac small sedan at the Grand River Assembly plant

Article by Christian A., on October 27, 2010

According to the latest reports, it appears that General Motors will announce Thursday that it will build a new compact-sized Cadillac at the Grand River Assembly plant in Lansing.

The $190 million investment which will add 600 jobs, is expected to announce the new Cadillac ATS, a new car smaller than the Cadillac CTS and similar to the money-losing BLS sold in Europe.

With the Grand River investment, General Motors will have pumped more than $3 billion in 20 United States plants. This means that a total of 7,350 jobs were created since emerging from bankruptcy 14 months ago.

"This is a huge boost to our manufacturing sector, that they have chosen to build a new small Cadillac here, and it's clearly great for Lansing. It's great for General Motors and it's great for Michigan," said U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Brighton.

It seems that Cadillac announcement will be the latest in a series of new products and investments made by General Motors. The manufacturer is also expected to give more details regarding its initial public stock offering in mid-November.

Regarding the Grand River Assembly investment, it appears that GM CEO Daniel Akerson (who became CEO on September 1), will get a 45-minute tour of the plant before the announcement. [via The Detroit News]
