GM Hits Reverse on Trump… Sucks Up To Biden.

WASHINGTON, Nov 23 (Reuters) — Gen­er­al Motors said on Mon­day it was revers­ing course and will no longer back the Trump admin­is­tra­tion’s effort to bar Cal­i­for­nia from set­ting its own emis­sions rules in an ongo­ing court fight.

GM Chief Exec­u­tive Mary Bar­ra said in a let­ter to envi­ron­men­tal groups it was “imme­di­ate­ly with­draw­ing from the pre­emp­tion lit­i­ga­tion and invit­ing oth­er automak­ers to join us.”

The dra­mat­ic rejec­tion of Trump came as GM sought to work with Pres­i­dent-elect Joe Biden, who has made boost­ing elec­tric vehi­cles (EVs) a top pri­or­i­ty. The Detroit automak­er has laid out an ambi­tious strat­e­gy to boost EV sales and last week said it will increase spend­ing on EVs and autonomous vehi­cles by 35% from pre­vi­ous dis­closed plans.

The announce­ment reflects cor­po­rate Amer­i­ca’s move to engage quick­ly with the incom­ing Demo­c­ra­t­ic administration.

Bar­ra said she believes “the ambi­tious elec­tri­fi­ca­tion goals of the pres­i­dent-elect, Cal­i­for­nia, and Gen­er­al Motors are aligned, to address cli­mate change by dras­ti­cal­ly reduc­ing auto­mo­bile emissions.”
