GM Investing 'Millions' In Ohio Plant

Automaker to announce a multimillion-dollar investment at its Lordstown plant and release photos of its Chevrolet Cruze small car next week.

LORDSTOWN, Ohio (AP) -- General Motors Corp. said Friday it will announce a multimillion-dollar investment at its Lordstown plant and release photos of its Chevrolet Cruze small car next Thursday.

The Cruze will be officially unveiled at the Paris Motor Show next month, the company said.

The Detroit automaker has said it plans to add workers at its Lordstown facility, which makes fuel-efficient cars that are selling well. It has announced a multibillion-dollar restructuring plan, including plant closures elsewhere, to try and weather the shift in consumer demand away from trucks and SUVs to more fuel-efficient cars.

Shares of GM closed Thursday at $11.35.
