General Motors' flagship electric truck plant in Detroit will idle for four weeks starting June 27 to prepare for a production expansion.

The downtime of the Factory Zero electric truck plant, which currently builds the GMC Hummer EV pickup, was confirmed to Automotive News by GM spokesman Dan Flores. He said that GM scheduled downtime at the plant to add production capacity sooner than planned, as the automaker plans to install tooling, machinery and equipment while workers are laid off from June 27 through July 22.

General Motors plans to build the Silverado EV and GMC Sierra Denali electric pickups at Factory Zero, as well as the Cruise Origin ride-hail and delivery van.

Starting this fall, Factory Zero, previously known as Detroit-Hamtramck, will also assemble Ultium battery cells into modules and packs for a variety of future electric vehicles from GM and its partners.
