May 16, 2011|By Gus G. Sentementes, The Baltimore Sun

General Motors Corp. expects to break ground Tuesday on a new electric motor manufacturing plant in White Marsh that will cost about $246 million and create 190 jobs as the company ramps up production of electric and hybrid vehicles in the coming years.

Federal and state officials, including Gov. Martin O'Malley, are expected to participate in a groundbreaking ceremony for a plant that will be the country's first electric motor plant owned by a major automaker.

The new plant, which is being built with GM, state and federal funding, will be part of GM's powertrain division at White Marsh.
