About General Motors Detroit Hamtramck Assembly

Detroit-Hamtramck (D-HAM) is among General Motors’ most complex Manufacturing Assembly facilities in North America building four vehicles on one production line. It is GM’s only plant located in Detroit with a total footprint that spans into two cities - Detroit and Hamtramck. Detroit-Hamtramck is the epicenter of electric vehicle production producing all of GM’s extended-range electric vehicles. The first vehicle produced at D-HAM for sale – a Cadillac Eldorado – came off the end of the line at 12:05 p.m. on February 4th, 1985. Since then, more than four million cars have been built. The plant currently operates five days a week on two, eight hour shifts.
