GM to build engines in new factory

September 26, 2008|From Times Wire Services

General Motors Corp. said it would build a new factory in Flint, Mich., to make four-cylinder engines for the Chevrolet Volt rechargeable electric car and other models.

GM Chief Executive Rick Wagoner said the new plant would build a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that would extend the range of the Volt, and a turbocharged version that would power the Chevrolet Cruze, a new compact car to be built in Lordstown, Ohio.

Production at the new $370-million plant will begin in 2010, and both cars are slated to go on sale in the same year.
