Massive automaker’s new EV plant in America will produce gas cars: Report

By Thomas Catenacci, DCNF

South Korea-based automaker Hyundai is set to announce a new $7 billion manufacturing electric vehicle (EV) plant in the U.S. that will also make gas-powered cars, according to several media reports.

“We are excited to announce a new EV plant plan in the United States soon, but we do not have details to share at this stage,” Hyundai told Reuters in a statement on Monday.

Hyundai is expected to formally announce its plans for the facility, which will be built on a 2,200-acre plot in Ellabell, Georgia, during President Joe Biden’s upcoming trip to South Korea, the Associated Press reported Thursday. But, while the plant is slated to largely produce EVs, it will also manufacture traditional gas-powered cars, a source familiar with the plans confirmed to CNBC.

The facility will employ up to 8,500 workers, according to the AP.

The company’s reported plans for a new plant represent the latest large-scale effort to boost domestic production of zero-emissions vehicles over the last several months. In addition to international automakers, both General Motors and Ford have unveiled aggressive plans to increase EV production in the U.S.

President Joe Biden has vowed to ensure 50% of private car sales are electric by 2030 and that every addition to the federal government’s massive vehicle fleet is an EV by 2035. The Biden administration has also rolled out its $5 billion plan to build a federal EV charging network across the Interstate Highway System.

“I pledged when I ran — we have hundreds — we have thousands and thousands of vehicles in the federal fleet,” Biden remarked in November. “They’re going to all go electric — all of them — down the road, supporting electric transit systems, electric school buses.”

The president will travel to South Korea and Japan between May 20-24, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said late last month.

Hybrids make sense . The plant would be well suited to make them .

Since most of the trips taken by non-commercial vehicles are local and generally less than 200 miles and are usually commuting or running errands, having an EV makes sense for that, but not for road trips where gas/diesel powered vehicles make much more sense. A short-trip EV can be charged at home and there wouldn’t be a need for a massive nationwide charging infrastructure. Using EVs that way would significantly reduce emissions.

A normal fill up of gasoline takes around 10-12 minutes. How long can we expect the recharging of EV vehicles on SloJoe’s nationwide government subsidized recharging network? I’ll wager it’ll take lots longer than a normal gas fill up. It’ll never be feasible until the recharge times are as quick as for gasoline fill ups. Who’s going to want to wait around for hours to recharge when they’re on an extended trip?

If you can’t top off your car in 10 minutes and drive another 400 miles you are wasting OUR time. O

How about replacing all the taxis in NY, DC, and Boston with rickshaws or pedicabs. That’ll save a lot of fuel and give the illegals something to do. FJB

I suggest making them all 100% EV, then let the people who elected them suffer with brown/black outs and lack of transportation because the EVs are sitting around waiting for a charge

AND, you have an endless supply of illegals and they don’t need recharging. However, they DO pollute the air when they eat beans.

Where is the power coming from for these charging stations? Wind dies so does wind farm. Cloudy day stops solar power. The technology for this initiative is here yet. Another effort to destroy this country. Thanks Joe, San Fran Nan, Schumer, Obama, Omar, AOC, Talib, and the rest of the Dems.

On a different topic. How come pro abortion advocates are not called “racist” when the vast majority of infanticide is in the black community?

Joe, you do not have enough electricity generation or transmission lines to replace fossil fuels. Nor will you have congress. Stop with the bullshit.

On second thought Joe, call me. I have invented a perpetual motion machine that can power electric cars without ever needing recharging. Just dial 911. I’ll be waiting for your call.

You will be able to charge your car OR heat your home and cook your meals. There is not enough electricity to do both. If every gas powered car was replaced with an electric car, it would take 700,000 megawatts of electricity being produced 24/7 to power them, and that is 700,000 more megawatts than our existing electrical grid can produce. It will take 700 new nuclear power plants to produce that much electricity just to power cars. Without environmentalists’ lawsuits, it will take between 50 and 80 years to build that many nuke plants. FJB

There is a lot of power in the clouds. Buses say they are clean air. They wouldn’t lie to us now, would they?
