    Default Where is the Volt factory?

    Where is the Volt produced? And is the Ampera produced at the same location?

    2013 bought new. Issues started on day 1, 6 miles out of dealership. 21 visits for repairs + 3 times an engineer from GM came to my workplace, 3 weeks driving with a data logger, 5 weeks at Milford proving grounds for repairs.

    All Volts, Amperas, and ELRs will come from there for the forseeable future.

    I thought it was built in the basement of the White House.

    As stated previously all global Voltec vehicle assembly is currently in DHAM (Factory that straddles the boarder of Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan)

    Battery assembly is in Brownstown, Michigan
    Battery cells currently come from South Korea but cell production will shift to Holland, Michigan later this year.
    Gas engine assembly is in Flint, Michigan
    Electric motors are sourced from Japan I believe.
    The sort of "Transmission" comes from Baltimore, Maryland I believe.

    Holden is also produced at Hamtramck. It's a beautiful sight to see Volt on the line.

    If that is the case, and both Volt and Ampera are built in the same factory, then why is the Ampera body fully painted and the Volt body is only partially painted? Is the assumption that UK and EU would not be dumb enought to accept a partially painted car, but the Americans would?

    Both the Volt and Ampera are fully painted the same.

    I believe you are referring to the grey plastic pieces on the Volt? For the Ampera those pieces come to the factory body coloured from the supplier. However the Ampera does has fewer colour options than the Volt (could be one reason).
