Ford to invest USD850 million in Michigan plant in US to produce battery electric vehicles


US automaker also on track to begin production of autonomous vehicles at a center in Michigan by 2021

Ford has announced plans to invest USD850 million at its Flat Rock assembly plant in Michigan (United States) through 2023 to produce battery electric vehicles (BEVs), the US automaker said in a press release on 20 March. As part of the investment, the automaker will add a second shift at the plant. In November 2018, Ford had cut the number of shift at the Flat Rock assembly plant from three to two. The investment will create 900 direct jobs at the Flat Rock site through 2023. The investment will also support production of Ford’s next-generation Mustang at the plant.
