Biden Gets Detroit Auto Show Tours From GM, Ford Execs

(CTN News) _ During his visit to the Detroit Auto Show on Wednesday, President Biden met with General Motors CEO Mary Barra and Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford.

At the North American International Auto Show, the president slowly rolled the electric Cadillac Lyriq down the blue carpeted floor.

“Come on, jump in, I’ll take you to Washington,” he said with a smile.

In response to a question regarding how it compares to the bright orange Chevrolet Corvette Z06, a vehicle that is not an electric vehicle (EV), Biden commented that it was a “beautiful automobile.”

A vintage Corvette owned by the president, who also has a vintage Corvette of his own, is showcasing the administration’s efforts to promote electric vehicles as well as the new law that provides tax incentives for the purchase of these vehicles.

During his tour, Vice President Biden viewed a variety of American-made hybrid, electric, and combustion-powered vehicles manufactured by Chevrolet, General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis.

This included the new electric Ford Mustang Mach-E. “It’s amazing how fast it is,” he said. “Does it have a launch button?”

Biden also examined Ford’s all-electric E-Transit van and F-150 pickup truck.

During a factory visit to Dearborn, Michigan, the president drove the Ford F-150.

He was set to announce the approval of the first $900 million in infrastructure funds to be used to build EV chargers in 35 states during his speech.

His Inflation Reduction Act, which he signed in August, provides $5 billion over five years for states to be able to set up a network of charging stations across the state.

In order to qualify for a new federal tax credit of up to $7,500, electric vehicles must be built in North America to meet the criteria for the infrastructure law.
