Electric vehicle could save local GM plant

DEAR EDITOR:

The GM Cruze (2010-2019) was never allowed to reach puberty, but its successor in name, GM Cruise, promises to live and thrive for decades to come.

The future clearly is with zero emissions autonomous vehicle, GM Cruise, and by 2023 GM intends to have at least 20 all-electric models on the market globally. There is absolutely no good reason why the Home of the Cruze in Lordstown cannot be completely remodeled to make way at least for one of these new models, and why idled UAW members cannot be immediately retrained to produce the cars of the future in Lordstown.

In the meantime, someone needs to inform the Trump administration that his stupid threats to remove subsidies for all-electric vehicles is killing our only viable option for a resurrection of GM Lordstown.
