General Motors is looking to build a second battery factory in the United States with South Korean joint venture partner LG Chem, Reuters cited a Wall Street Journal report as saying on Thursday (4 March).
The companies are close to completing a decision to locate the plant in Tennessee, the reports said. The WSJ cited unnamed sources “familiar with the matter”.
Neither GM nor LG responded immediately to Reuters’ requests for comment.
The two companies are currently building a US$2.3bn battery plant in northeast Ohio which is expected to open next year and eventually supply enough batteries to power hundreds of thousands of vehicles annually.
