GM Drops Support For Trump Administration Lawsuit Against California Clean-Air Standards – By Associated Press (Huffpost) / Nov 23 2020

General Motors CEO Mary Barra says the company supports President-elect Joe Biden’s plan to expand electric vehicle use.

CEO Mary Barra said in a letter Monday to environmental groups that GM will pull out of the lawsuit, and it urges other automakers to do so.

She said the company agrees with President-elect Joe Biden’s plan to expand electric vehicle use. Last week, GM said it is testing a new battery chemistry that will bring electric-vehicle costs down to those of gas-powered vehicles within five years.

Barra sent the letter after a call with California Gov. Gavin Newsom, the company said.
