General Motors’ Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Plant, where the Chevrolet Volt is being built, may become a big tour stop for schools and industry leaders. GM officials said there has been a huge interest in wanting to visit the plant once the official production of the Volt kicks off in September.
“I’m expecting that we will have all different kinds of visits,” plant manager Teri Quigley told the Free Press. “I think it will be five times as many people as normal at the onset,” she said.
GM started producing preproduction units of the Volt last week at the plant. The Detroit automaker plans to build fewer than 500 preproduction units from now until November.
