Ultium Cells has announced that its plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee has shipped its first battery cells to its customer, General Motors.

Spring Hill is Ultium’s second facility under a joint venture with General Motors and LG Chem, following the plant in Lordstown which began production in August 2022.

A third facility is under construction in Lansing, Michigan, which is scheduled to begin production later this year.

The half-mile-long Spring Hill factory is expected to produce millions of battery cells for General Motors’ Ultium Platform electric vehicles, including the Cadillac Lyriq produced at GM’s neighboring Spring Hill Assembly plant.

Ultium Cells plans to provide battery cell capacity to support GM's North American electric vehicle assembly capacity of more than 1 million units by mid-decade while supporting GM's plans to supply other automotive companies and other industries including rail, aerospace, heavy trucking, and marine customers.
