General Motors will announce today that it’s rehiring or retaining 184 workers to make 1.4-liter, four-cylinder engines for the Chevrolet Volt electric car and Chevrolet Cruze compact.  The company said it will invest $163 million at its Flint Engine South plant, a parts plant in Bay City, Mich., and a foundry in Defiance, Ohio.  In Flint, the company will rehire 135 workers; it will retain 49 jobs in Bay City and Defiance.  The jobs are in addition to the 160 people already hired at the Flint Engine South plant, which will begin making the engines early next year.  The new hires will come from a pool of workers laid off earlier this fall when GM closed down a neighboring engine plant in Flint.  GM currently makes engines for the Volt and Cruze in Austria.  It has invested $250 million in the Flint South plant to make the engines there.  GM will be able to produce 400 engines per day initially, but will gradually increase production.
