Hummer factory gets second life making electric cars
A U.S. auto plant that once made giant gas-guzzlers will now make cars that don’t need gas at all.
AM General, which previously built the Hummer H2, sold its factory in South Bend, Indiana to the electric carmaker SF Motors, both firms announced Thursday.
SF Motors will pay $110 million to produce “intelligent electric vehicles,” according to publicly available filings. It will spend another $30 million to upgrade the 700,000-square-foot commercial assembly plant.
