The Celestiq, expected to launch next year, will be the first vehicle built at the Warren, Mich., tech center, which has been GM's engineering and design hub since the 1950s. The Celestiq will be hand built in low volumes. AutoForecast Solutions expects volume of fewer than 200 vehicles per year.
GM will use the investment to purchase and reinstall equipment to hand build the Celestiq. Renovation at the Warren campus has already begun, GM said in a statement Wednesday.
