DETROIT (AP)– General Motors states it will no longer support the Trump administration in legal efforts to end California’s right to set its own clean-air requirements.
CEO Mary Barra said in a letter Monday to ecological groups that GM will pull out of the claim, and it urges other car manufacturers to do so.
She said the business concurs with President-elect Joe Biden‘s strategy to expand electric car use. Recently, GM said it is checking a brand-new battery chemistry that will bring electric-vehicle costs down to those of gas-powered automobiles within 5 years.
Barra sent the letter after a call with California Gov. Gavin Newsom, the company said.
” We believe the enthusiastic electrification goals of the President-elect, California, and General Motors are aligned, to attend to climate change by considerably decreasing vehicle emissions,” Barra stated in the letter.
