General Motors, an American Company, plans to invest 1 Billion dollars to manufacture electric cars; the only problem is the Investment is in Mexico and not the U.S. because Biden is President.
The Investment will ramp up production at their facility in Mexico dubbed the Ramos Arizpe production Complex. The facility will begin manufacturing Electric vehicles in 2023, according to G.M.
The company declined to disclose what E.V.s (Electric Vehicles) will be manufactured there, but it is known that the Chevy Equinox and the Chevy Blazer are already in production at that facility.
The Investment will include a new capacity to build battery packs and other electronic components such as electric motors, and they will also build new paint shops. these updates are set to begin in the next few months
United Auto Workers Vice President Terry Dittes called the Investment a “slap in the face” to its union members and U.S. taxpayers as the company is one of many lobbying for government incentives to support E.V.s.
“At a time when General Motors is asking for a significant investment by the U.S. government in subsidizing electric vehicles, this is a slap in the face for not only UAW members and their families but also for U.S. taxpayers and the American workforce” he said in a statement.
Dittes said taxpayer money “should not go to companies that utilize labor outside the U.S. while benefiting from American government subsidies.”
G.M. has not disclosed if the vehicles manufactured at the facility in Mexico will be exported to the U.S., but they did disclose that at least 30 new E.V.s will make as G.M. works to become an Electric car company by 2035.
