Report: Chevrolet Volt More Than Just A Car, Its A Political Issue

Unlike the Toyota Prius which has its batteries assembled in Europe that are then shipped to Japan for final assembly, where the final product takes the form of an egg-shaped sedan hatch the Chevrolet Volt has both its batteries manufactured and final assembly taking place right here in the United States; more specifically, in Michigan. Secondly, we all are aware that the Volt and its technology are stepping stones to a giant leap forward of automotive transportation. As such, Progress Michigan, a political grassroots movement that pushes for (you guessed it) progress in the state of Michigan, believes that the Volt and future products like it should continue to be built in the Mitten.

The main reason for PMs stance on the Volt and other future electric vehicles rests on the belief that the manufacturing of things revolving around industries such as wind, solar power, and gas-free transportation can recharge the crippled economy of Michigan. They have even sent an email to GOP governor-elect Rick Synder, encouraging him to continue the push for more battery manufacturing facilities throughout the state something that will no doubt create many jobs that have been lost over the years.
