GM Plans to Add Jobs and Invest Millions to Produce Electric Car

Less than a week after a series of critical tweets from President Donald Trump over an Ohio plant closure, General Motors is announcing plans to add 400 jobs and build a new electric vehicle at a Michigan factory.

The company says it will spend $300 million in Orion Township to build a Chevrolet vehicle based on the battery-powered Bolt.

GM's CEO Mary Barra says the new vehicle is expected to be released in a year or two.

Watch the CNBC interview below with Barra as she discusses her company's plans.
