General Motors has announced it will invest $1 billion in a manufacturing facility in Mexico as it prepares to build electric vehicles in 2023 there. The OEM said it is building a new high tech paint shop at the Ramos Arizpe site in the Mexican state of Coahuila, which borders the U.S. The manufacturing complex will also build batteries and electrical components. The announcement drew the ire of The United Auto Workers union who criticized the decision to build EVs in Mexico as opposed to using the unions U.S members just as Washington is considering large new incentives for EVs. The automaker currently builds electric vehicles at four locations in the U.S and Canada.
