DETROIT (WKZO) -- General Motors plans to invest 1.5-billion dollars in its North American operations this year.

GM North American President Mark Reuss announced the investment during a speech Wednesday evening, but provided few details.  The investment is in addition to more than 10.2-billion in facility investments since July 2009 and two-billion in investments at U.S. plants since May 2011.

On top of the investment, GM officials confirmed on Tuesday that new jobs will also be coming this year.
