I doubt they would make a complete pullout, but greatly downsizing is possible. It could end up being Corvette, truck/suv and enough EV plants (to qualify for mileage, credits and grants) are all that remain stateside.

Isn't that what Ford is currently doing/going also? Trucks, EV/SUVs, and Mustangs? No 'car' production. Sad.

If that's true, I guess that's the trend then.

Wonder what Texans with EV,s did last week. Hate to think my wife or kids needed to go to doctor and my car was dead with no where to fuel it.

Thats a non-issue. Really. Texans drive big trucks. Believe me I lived there in 2018-2020 and seen it with my own eyes. Very RARELY will you see a small car or an EV. In the two years I never saw a Toyota Prius in Houston.

They can plan, but economics drive decisions.
Want more houses? Provide loans.
Want more EVs? Have higher fuel prices. But without that, not sure what's going to drive people to change to EV's.

Throw in a carbon tax on gasoline cars and that should do it.

Well in the U.S.
I guess if you are in the know,or controlling the strings, start investing now in quarries overseas, lol.

Saw yesterday where Volvo has joined the all EV only product line by 2030.  Someone better start revising/building the infrastructure to support replacing over 200,000,000 vehicles with internal combustion engines in the US.
