Major automakers are rapidly expanding development and production of electric vehicles. Michigan has an opportunity to lead in this sector, and we need utility companies, regulators, policymakers and businesses to work together to make it happen.
Ford recently announced it would expand investment in electric vehicles and create a dedicated team ‒ appropriately named “Team Edison” ‒ to accelerate development of fully electric cars. General Motors will also introduce two new EVs to its current fleet of 20 EVs due for release in 2023. GM Executive Vice President Mark Reus recently affirmed the company’s vision, saying that “General Motors believes in an all-electric future.”
