"Today's announcement is great news for Michigan. This investment in electric vehicles will support good-paying union jobs in Michigan and help grow our state's economy. I applaud General Motors making this important investment in the state where the company was founded.
"The future of the automotive industry is electric. As a country, we either let China continue to dominate the production of electric vehicles, or we can make strategic investments like today's announcement that will result in Michigan workers and union labor making these vehicles here in the United States. In Congress, I am working with Senator Stabenow to expand the electric vehicle tax credit, to give consumers a tax cut and incentivize more American-made electric vehicles."
