DETROIT (Reuters) - General Motors Co plans to invest $69 million and add about 2,500 jobs at its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant to build the next-generation Chevrolet Impala large sedan and other cars, the company said.
The plant will also build the new Chevrolet Malibu mid-size sedan alongside the Chevrolet Volt and Opel Ampera electric cars.
GM North America President Mark Reuss announced the investment at the plant on Wednesday.
The investment is part of a previously announced plan by GM to invest $2 billion in 17 U.S. plants. Among the investments announced already have been $109 million at two Michigan plants and $131 million at a Kentucky plant to build a new version of the Corvette sports car.
