General Motors and LG Energy Solution are considering building a battery cell manufacturing facility in Indiana.

It would be the fourth battery plan developed by the companies’ joint venture Ultium Cells LLC.

The company’s first U.S. battery cell plant in Warren, Ohio is scheduled to start operations later this month.
