That is that even despite rising gas prices, when the 'luster' of alternative-fuel vehicles has been taken-off, GM isn't backing away from betting on electric vehicles.
GM isn't slowing down its approad, instead, it is announcing that the Bolt EV will be built at the Orion assembly plant near Detroit.
Michigan Gov. Rick Scott welcomed the decision to build the car in his state and predicted the automaker won't be disappointed in the outcome.
“Michigan unquestionably remains the global automotive leader,” Scott said. “Chevrolet is tapping a skilled workforce that includes some of the most talented and hard-working people in the world for this cutting-edge vehicle. Chevrolet is an important part of our state’s automotive history, and Michigan-made products like the Bolt EV point to a bright future as well.”
