KEEPING UP WITH THE PRIUSES: GM to build own motors for its electric vehicles
General Motors says it will spend $246 million to launch electric motor production in 2013 at a factory in Baltimore, becoming the first large U.S. automaker to build its own electric motors for hybrids and battery-powered vehicles.
Good..that way they can more closely control QC.
I worked for a third-party inspection company for a VERY short period of time (4 days)..you may or may not be surprised the corners that suppliers are willing to cut to get an order out on time.
After being to one factory..I'm glad I don't own a Ford truck/SUV now, hahahaha.
