General Motors Exits Trump to California Lawsuit

The company agreed with Biden’s plan to expand the use of electric vehicles

General Motors said it will no longer support the Donald Trump administration in its legal attempts to revoke California’s right to set its own standards for air purity.

Company executive director Mary Barra said in a letter to environmental organizations that General Motors is withdrawing from the lawsuit and encourages other automakers to follow her example.

According to her, the company agrees with the plan of President-elect Joe Biden to expand the use of electric cars.

Last week, the company said it is testing a new battery chemistry that will reduce the cost of electric cars to a level comparable to that of gasoline cars.
