Electric vehicles are the future of the automobile industry and a key to innovative leadership in 21st-century technology and manufacturing. Our state pioneered the auto industry and now we stand in the vanguard of its future.
Already, the Chevy Volt is creating and retaining good-paying jobs in Michigan -- and Ford's 2012 Focus Electric will create even more jobs.
All this growth will only hapen if the market for electric vehicles is strong. Michigan can be the hub for 21st-century auto technology innovation and provide jobs for this and future generations, but only if electric car sales and manufacturing succeed here.
