WARREN, MI--March 17, 2014: General Motors broke ground today on a new $30 million reduced-scale wind tunnel to expand its aerodynamic testing facility on its Warren Technical Center campus.

The investment will improve test capabilities and support of aerodynamic development, critical to GM’s global CO2 compliance strategy.

The new facility will add a 50-percent increase in reduced-scale testing capacity, a 25-percent increase in full-scale testing capacity and create up to five new jobs. In addition, the new wind tunnel will use a moving ground plane to simulate full driving conditions enabling higher fidelity aerodynamic testing.

A brief ceremony marking the official start of construction was held at the site and was attended by GM and City of Warren officials.
