GM invests $51 million to upgrade plant to produce more EV drive unit castings

GM plans to invest more than $51 million to upgrade its Bedford, Indiana mold and aluminum die casting plant for some of its current casting needs, and to support the upcoming Chevy Silverado EV, which is to be launched at CES in 2022.

The Silverado EV joins the growing roster of GM vehicles with aluminum drive unit castings made at Bedford. The one-million-square-foot plant also makes aluminum drive unit castings for the 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup and 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV, as well as drive unit housings for Chevy EVs.
