Ford Motor Co. is investing $3.7 billion in factories across three Midwestern US states to pump out more electric vehicles and traditional gasoline-fueled autos in a sweeping expansion that will create 6,200 union jobs.

Five Ford plants will be expanded to produce more hot sellers, such as the electric F-150 Lightning pickup, and roll out new models, including a battery-powered commercial vehicle to be built at the automaker’s factory in Avon Lake, Ohio, the company said Thursday in a statement.
