By Elliott Francis

General Motors is investing $246 million to build electric motors for Hybrid and electric cars here in the U.S. The plant selected to manufacture the motors is located in Baltimore.

The investment makes Baltimore Transmission the first electric motor manufacturing facility in the U.S. operated by a major automaker.

200 additional jobs will be created to produce the next generation rear-drive electric motors. The project is partially supported by stimulus funds through the U.S. Department of Energy.

The decade-old plant, which currently manufactures two-stage transmissions for hybrid vehicles, was selected for its adherence to eco-friendly technology. Regular production of the electric motors is expected to begin early in 2013.
