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

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

A spokeswoman for the joint venture said New Carlisle, Indiana is being looked at for the potential investment and Ultium had submitted a tax abatement application that it hopes will be approved later this month.

The company's first U.S battery cell plant in Warren, Ohio is set to begin later this month.
