OHIO (WSYR-TV) — General Motors is loaning $40 million to an electric car company so it can take over a shuttered GM factory in Ohio.
The deal will allow start-up Lordstown Motors to re-tool the old factory for production of electric pickup trucks. Lordstown Motors hopes to have the first trucks roll off the assembly line by the end of 2020.
