President Biden is going to be in attendance for the Detroit Auto Show Media Day this Wednesday.

Hopefully Chevy has the Blazer EV, Silverado EV and maybe even the Equinox on display for him to see.


WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden plans to attend the Detroit Auto Show later this month as his administration touts a rising number of investments in electric vehicles and battery manufacturing.

"I'll be there. I'm a car guy — as you kind of noticed," Biden said at an event. The Commerce Department on Friday awarded $52.2 million to a Detroit regional program called the "Global Epicenter of Mobility" to help Michigan’s automotive sector transition to EVs and autonomous vehicles.

The Commerce Department said despite more than $5 billion in private investment the Detroit region’s "prospects are threatened by rising global competition in the electric and autonomous vehicle market, by the rapid pace of innovation in new mobility solutions and by an aging workforce that needs continuous reskilling to keep up with new products and technologies."

The White House has heralded a string of recent major investment announcements from U.S. and foreign automakers to build new battery plants and electric vehicles.

This month's Detroit Auto Show will be the first time the event has been held since 2019. The North American International Auto Show, open to the public from Sept. 17 to Sept. 25, is expected to focus on the shift to EVs.

Biden wants at least 50% of new vehicles sold by 2030 to be electric or plug-in electric hybrids.

As vice president in the Obama administration, Biden attended the Detroit show and was a strong advocate of the 2008-09 bailouts of GM and Chrysler, which is now part of Stellantis NV.

EV battery makers are looking to increase U.S. production as the country implements stricter regulation and tightens tax credit eligibility.

Japan's Honda Motor Co said on Monday it will build a new $4.4 billion lithium-ion battery plant for electric vehicles in the United States with Korean battery supplier LG Energy Solution Ltd.

Also this week, Toyota said it will boost its planned investment in a new U.S. battery plant from $1.29 billion to $3.8 billion, partly in response to rising consumer demand for electric vehicles.

General Motors Co and LG Energy Solution said this week production had begun at their $2.3 billion joint-venture battery production plant in Ohio. The companies said last month they were considering a site in New Carlisle, Indiana, for a fourth U.S. battery cell manufacturing plant expected to cost around $2.4 billion.

Please read posts 3 - 5. 🤓
I see, I am missing some posts. I blocked a member and at first it would show the posts and it would just say "ignored" rather than what they posted. Now it appears the posts are being filtered and not shown to me at all. Which is fine, it just means sometimes I am missing some context for other people's posts. 🤣

I'm a member of Stingray Forum where political posts are not allowed. This makes a more pleasant experience for everyone. The above posts only result in pissing contests.
John, the owner of Stingray forum, is a typical left wing piece of $hit that silences anyone who doesn't agree with his left wing BS. F him, F that forum, and F any other weak spineless tyrant who attempts to silence the free speech of others.

Intelligent, educated, and confident people can have a polite conversation, and agree to disagree while appreciating the opinions and positions of others.
Based on your post, you sound like a insecure sheep who is incapable for thinking for themselves, who simply regurgitates whatever propaganda you've been fed, and tries to silence anyone who doesn't agree with that propaganda.
Be better.

Well I'm glad YOU are intelligent, educated and confident. You talk about polite conversation and then without knowing anything about me, you resort to assumptions, name calling and question my intelligence. Thanks for your input.

If you don't want to give the impression that you are a weak insecure tyrant, don't advocate for censoring the free speech of other adults. This should be obvious to an intelligent person.

Don't try to deny other's free speech. If you feel triggered and need a safe space, don't read their posts, or block them.
