As per a report by Reuters, General Motors Co said that it is considering building a second battery factory in the United States with South Korean joint-venture partner LG Chem Ltd. It added that it is “exploring the feasibility of constructing a second, state of the art battery cell manufacturing plant in the United States” with LG’s battery unit LG Energy Solution, via its Ultium Cells LLC joint venture, the report said. GM said it hopes to have a decision by June.

The report added that two people briefed on the matter said that GM and LG Chem are in advanced talks with Tennessee officials to build the plant, which is expected to be located near GM’s Spring Hill assembly plant.

GM said in October it would invest $2 billion in Spring Hill to build electric vehicles, including the Cadillac Lyriq. It also said last year that it was investing $27 billion in electric and autonomous vehicles over the next five years, up from $20 billion planned before
