GM Opens Canadian EV plant for BrightDrop Zevo electric delivery vans

GM and its subsidiary BrightDrop have opened up an EV manufacturing plant in Canada after completely retooling the CAMI Assembly plant in Ontario.

The automaker began retooling CAMI for EV production on May 1, 2022, and in just seven months, the team installed entirely new production equipment covering two million square feet.

BrightDrop will now use the CAMI plant to manufacture its Zevo 600 electric delivery vans, and DHL will be its first Canadian customer.

“The BrightDrop Zevo is a prime example of GM’s flexible Ultium EV architecture, which is allowing us to quickly launch a full range of EVs for our customers,” said GM President Mark Reuss. “As of today, I am proud to call the CAMI EV Assembly team the first full-scale all-electric manufacturing team in Canada.”
