Detroit — General Motors Co. on Friday is poised to rename its Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant "Factory Zero," according to two sources familiar with the matter, a sign of GM's deepening commitment to an electric future that insiders call "zero zero zero."

Detroit-Hamtramck, GM's first fully dedicated electric vehicle plant, internally has been dubbed Factory Zero as it continues a push toward a future of what the automaker calls "zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion." GM plans to spend $20 billion on electric and autonomous vehicle technology through 2025. That includes producing 20 electric vehicles by 2023, among them the GMC Hummer EV to be built at D-Ham late next year.
