(Reuters) – General Motors Co (NYSE 🙂 announced Tuesday that its first electric vehicle assembly plant in Detroit-Hamtramck, Michigan will manufacture a Silverado electric pickup truck under the Chevrolet brand.

The US automaker didn't say when its production will start. GM recently unveiled the GMC Hummer electric sports utility vehicle, also known as Factory Zero, which is also built at the plant.

The company's plan is part of an increase in planned spending of between $ 9 billion and $ 10 billion this year, including more than $ 7 billion in electric and autonomous vehicles.

According to GM, the electric Silverado will offer customers a range of more than 400 miles on a full charge. The news about the company working on the pickup was reported last year.

The company is expected to introduce a range of new electric vehicles, sports equipment, and specialty vehicles that will be built at its Detroit-Hamtramck facility.

Previously, GM announced that it would be manufacturing an electric Hummer pickup truck and an automated EV shuttle, the Cruise Origin, at the factory.
