Ambassador Bridge Boosts Electric Car Production

The week-long disruption to the bridge, which accounts for roughly 25% of US-Canada annual trade estimated to be worth $1.7bn (£1.2bn) a day, rocked the car manufacturing industry.

General Motors, Ford, Toyota and Honda plants have been forced to halt production and cancel work shifts due to parts shortages caused by the blockade.

The disruption helped knock one industry back and created a vacuum for another to fill.

. . . officials have threatened severe consequences for individuals who continue protesting after they’ve been told to leave.

Severe consequences.

We'll see if the blockade ends or grows stronger.

I call BS on the production of electric cars! The reason being, recent news indicates that multiple industries that rely on chips have a minimal supply.

Median inventory has fallen from 40 days to fewer than 5 days, resulting in no room for error, Raimondo said.
So how are EV manufacturers still open and producing???? It sounds a tad contrived to me. More like an excuse. I seriously doubt that EV's use fewer chips in production! link

Maybe the chip shortage isn't as bad as you've been told?

How would any of us ever know for sure.

Thank you Biden and the liberals for $1.56 a litre gas. Ya, go, for the gold. You scoundrels, war is immense, on the economy, and they are hoarding gas, for whoever has the most gas, wins, but nukes make that mute.

What if this is it, do you rejoice as we are slowly starved. Amen, brothers and sisters, rejoice, for the second coming is at hand. But what do I know, for only God knows the day and the hour. But do the warning signs point war, nato v Russian and China alliance, they aren’t sheep herders, sad, I say, death comes for us all and the closer you get to it, the more you’ll understand.

They need to think old school for their parts. I remember about 1980 in Flint MI they would fly parts into the airport then helicopter them to the GM parking lot. No need for trucks except fork trucks to bring them in. They did it for weeks.

Buying an ev?

I have no problem finding and buying a new ev.

$14,000 - $30, 000 is not bad for a new car. Are gas engine new cars cheaper than that?
