GM Reveals All-Electric Hummer
"Had been waiting for an all new all electric version of the Hummer designed for off road and on road use, and with acceleration that would have been impossible in a combustion engine version. We talked with GM President Mark Royce about where this new Hummer will fit in the marketplace. JMC is really the on ly premium truck brand out there. If you think about it. Most of their competitors are brand extensions for that, So we have GMC and we have homer. In a premium channel for trucks, and that's a very distinguishable piece of what we're doing with both brands you have the 84 84 acts and things like that for for GMC. I think you'll see that that grow. But then you have the Hummer. You know, the Hummer model under the GMC umbrella as well, which is sort of the ultimate off road piece of that so very carefully designed and executed with different attributes, different designs and different gotta market strategies. Mark you mentioned competitors. Let's talk about competitors in the E V space you have for now, with a 1 50 evey they've announced you've got, of course, Tesla with their pickup truck. How does this compare this Hummer evey year? The direct competitors against Are you going for a somewhat different market? I think it's like nothing else on believe it that this truck is is very different from What are competitors have described most recently with the peace of the light duty pickup truck, and then a few quite a few months back with What with the other electric only competitors is doing with their truck and I don't I don't really know until we see those come into the marketplace with those trucks are but I can tell you what this is, and this is Right now, Like nothing else. Talk about what may be a sister truck. The badger from Nikola GM obviously announced a fairly large arrangement with nickel a lot of controversy around it. Is the badger going forward. Do you see that? Is something complimentary to what you're doing? The Humber evey? Well, you know, we won't sell in market that truck That will be Nicholas. That's what Nick was doing. And the big difference there is that truck will will have a fuel cell. And so it's still a fuel cell electric truck but quite different or offering with our lt impacts on the pure electric Hummer so very different. But as far as you know, the badger and the nickel deal is going forward. Right now we're going forward and so exciting piece of this is Taking what is I believe the best fuel cell in the world with our fuel cell that is made in our joint venture with Honda right here in Michigan on DH, taking that fuel cell and looking at deploying it in the heavy duty transport market. With large trucks. You know, the class seven and eight and then also in the light duty badger truck that you mentioned. So, yes. So with the Hummer If you put this in the larger context of General Motors and its move into electric vehicles, you've announced the lyric the Cadillac lyric. Now they have the Hummer. Evey is understanding. There's a bold UV coming out as well. How does this fit into the overall portfolio that you're developing? And what comes next? It's a great question. If you look at the way we've designed the platforms, both on the A truck platform are BT Battery Electric truck platform and then are better electric vehicle platform. Those two dedicated platforms are quite different. Onda approach is quite different than many others that are in introducing electric vehicles. Reason why I say that is because again we're deploying our module or pack are multi M battery source out of our Lordstown plant in Ohio. That is Designed and executed to be high volume. And the reason why that's important again for the customer and for for the market is because we can really take because of scale. And chemistry that we've developed. In fact, right here we have a chemistry developing lab for ourselves and our packs right here at the Tech center in Warren, Michigan. That quick development of chemistry and then deploying that chemistry and our lt impacts is really the secret time driving that cost down so that we can offer Not only Hummers and Cadillacs, but Eve's and beyond for the mass market piece of our other brands that do higher volume and right in the heart of the market, like Chevrolet and Chevrolet crossovers, trucks, all of those vehicles and so this has been really, really done very carefully. And that goes also into the electric motors that we're doing ourselves. That was GM President Mark Royce on the All new Hummer evey coming out of thin next year for Bloomberg. First word news. We go
Tesla Rivals are Moving Into High Gear -- and Going Public
"From wondering I'm Elaine Appleton grant and this is business words daily on this Wednesday August Nineteenth David Brown's on vacation. Tesla has long had an image of being in both good and less good ways without comparison. CEO? Elon Musk stands out for his big vision and sometimes quirky behavior, and until now anyway, Tesla's all electric vehicles have stood head and shoulders above the competition coming from traditional automakers. Competition what competition I can almost imagine musk saying. Oh, but there is plenty coming tesla shares soared two, hundred, fifty percent this year. The company is now the most valuable automaker in the world according to. CNN. That's because Tesla which went public ten years ago is finally profitable. Tesla had a record twenty nineteen in posted its first annual profit last year despite the pandemic it's been profitable this year as well and that kind of performance and the stock market's reward for it is convincing more and more electric vehicle makers to go public and to try to woo customers away from Tesla last week, Ohio Electric Startup, Lordstown Motors Corporation, or L. M. C. said, it plans to go public by the end of the year. It's ticker symbol ride. If the deal goes through, the company will be valued at close to one point five, billion dollars. So who is Lordstown Motors to burst on the scene this way? L. LLC is a spinoff of another electric truckmaker called Workhorse. GROUP LORDS DOWN CEO Steve Burns is the former CEO of workhorse with LLC Burns resurrecting a project that we're course didn't have the money to do the company plans to release an all electric full-size pickup truck the Lordstown endurance in the second half of twenty twenty one that's according to journalist Alan. Adler, writing for trade publication freight waves. The truck will have a range of about two hundred fifty miles on a charge the same as Tesla's sci-fi looking cyber truck it'll toes seventy five hundred pounds alums. He says again, just like the chuck, the endurance will start at fifty two thousand dollars a good deal more than the cyber forty thousand dollar base price. But UNLIKE TESLA LLC plans to sell the endurance to commercial customers buying fleets of trucks since revealing the prototype on June twenty-fifth Ellen Mc says it's received more than twenty seven, thousand pre orders. That's one point four, billion dollars worth of trucks. NCO Burns says its first years worth of trucks are now sold out. That is if it can raise the money, it needs to actually make them l.. AMC. Bought the Lordstown Ohio GM plant that shutdown last year when GM killed the last Chevy Cruz that six million square foot plant needs retooling, which is costly MC plans to raise about six hundred and seventy five million dollars through its IPO. That boatload of cash could help it come through on its boast to be first to market among a group of EV pickup truck competitors in addition to Tesla that group includes Ford GM Nikola and Arabian a company backed by Ford and Amazon. So, here's the obvious L.. He doesn't yet have a product just a prototype if you're wondering how the young startup can go public without a product you should be. L. EMC is one of a handful of electric vehicle makers employing what's called a reverse merger that means the company that plans to make a product like LLC hooks up with the so-called blank check business. It's also called a special purpose acquisition company. SPAC. Is doing the reverse merger with a blank check company called Diamond Peak Holdings. Diamond peak is already publicly traded that means when the merger occurs. LLC. MC becomes public sort of like easing into a coat someone else has been wearing. This back door IPO method is easier for companies to do. They don't have to produce expensive roadshow's. Also, avoid a great deal of financial scrutiny by the SEC. One of the most famous reverse murders was Richard Branson's space company Virgin Galactic, Holdings and Fantasy Sports Company draftkings went public in a three billion dollar reverse merger. Last year according to the A. Times. The number of reverse mergers hit a record high last year. That's because the IPO market was volatile and high profile IPO's like Uber Fared. Poorly. It ain't cheap to build a new car company but Tesla's successes inspiring other entrepreneurs to try and they need oodles of money that helps to explain why another electric truckmaker nickel motors used a reverse merger to go public in June and vehicle-maker. FISKER has a reverse merger in the works. The is green truckmakers may see these back door IPO's as the speediest way to raise the cash needed to fight he'll in musk and rapidly launched their new products. Tesla's promising to deliver the cyber took by late twenty, twenty one which means that the deadline to beat yes. It may be tough to knock Tesla on it's pedestal, but LLC and a raft arrivals are sure going to try.

"Two were ardent trump supporters and the other two were Democrats and I was really struck by it. Because you know we talk so much about how divided this country is and somehow they're able to make it work and I would. Maybe there's a lesson in there for the rest of us think he's GonNa Save the world. The money's the family that's divided. The Dad took a transfer from one plant to another holly money. Says THEY WON'T BE SUPPORTING THE PRESIDENT? He is the president of the United States. So you can't you have to respect them that way but we are just. He could have done a lot more for the middle class rather than the upper class. He came here. Said don't sell your house. General Motors is going to be here. Maybe in cars and then a few months later it was closing. People are losing their jobs. Families had to move so any promises that he's made for our area. He did not keep last week they still had a decided which Democratic candidate they would vote for this Tuesday. I asked Erin whether any of this change in Lordstown feels like a good thing for their family. I mean there's some hope on the horizon potentially for the community and you know they're they're watching that but it doesn't really apply to them because there might be new jobs but Kevin Money you know he. He's looking toward retiring. Were with full benefits from GM. And there's only one way to retire with full benefits from GM and that's worth five more years at GM. So from their perspective is a little bit irrelevant. You know what's going on because their fate has already been determined. You know his job is gone and the only way he can continue to have. That job is to commute to Toledo. I missed my dad and most and most and I'm getting ready to go down for the night. All the fear unsoundness wash over me like a wave.

Tim Ryan will become president and get something back here for us. Many we will eventually have to move up. Some others to because of the stress of broken families need it to be avoided. There is no answer yet. All I can say the money families Sean. We live in hope that we all live at strong family. The economy changes. And we don't always talk about kind of how that trickles down and affects the kids. But you know. Here's this one family with this one story about you.

"To understand this circle of industrial life errands. Soccer people across the region who have lived through the ups and downs. And there's this one guy who is watching this story play out for years and business is closely tied to the health of Lordstown as I was getting ready to go down to the Mahoning Valley and talk to people and I said well you know where should I go. Where are the places I need to go and everybody said? Oh well you you gotta go to Ross's so yeah we're going to Ross's eatery and pub which is a local watering hall. That has has long been kind of a hang out for people who worked at the facility. We were there on Thursday afternoon around lunch and it really is one of those places that just seems to draw everybody. You know a wooden bar and kind of the back of the room you not of color and light. There's actually a lot of deer heads every one of them or we want them. And then we met earl- Ross and Earl Ross is one of those guys who just it's like. He was just meant to own a bar. I am one of the founding owners. And I'm a sole proprietor. Now my father and my sister and myself started at one thousand nine hundred seventy. What's changed since one thousand nine hundred seven? Oh what a roller coaster ride that has been. I had hair that change. There is almost ten thousand members working three Shifts General Motors. You know at seven. Am You get to third shifter's getting off they'd come over to eat at three? Pm You'd get the afternoon people or day people getting off and then at eleven pm. You shifter's getting off so three times a day. You had twelve hundred or thirteen. Fourteen hundred people driving through the community. All of these workers didn't lose their jobs overnight. The demise of the GM Lordstown plant was gradual as Chevy Cruz sales slowed GM cut one shift. Then another three thousand workers were laid off between January twenty seventeen in June two thousand eighteen president donald trump who campaigned on a pledge to bring back. All jobs held a rally in Youngstown in the summer of two thousand seventeen just twenty minutes outside of Lordstown. He told workers then they shouldn't worry. Let Me Tell You folks in Ohio under this area. Don't sell your house. Don't sell not salad. We're going to get does values up. We're going to get those jobs coming back. And Wigan a fill up those factories or rip them down a bill brand new ones. So it's going to happen but two years later. The plant shutdown. So who's to blame at the time? There were a lot of explanations batted around there was the impact of the trump administration's tariffs which increased the cost of producing vehicles. Gm pointed the car. Sales folks no longer wanted fuel-efficient starter. Cars like the Chevy Cruz they trucks and as vs and the company they wanted to be nimble to pivot to hybrid and electric vehicles and invest in self driving cars. But there were serious consequences. One study estimated that the closure could cost the region around eight billion dollars in overall economic activity that includes people like Earl Ross. Who told Erin that he depended on those? Gm workers for consistent business as he described it as just the rug being pulled out from under him and suddenly his revenues are down sixty percent and he's got to figure out a way to somehow make it work. The Punch in the gut was the going away party. Crafter going away party after going away party. You know he talked about how since the Lordstown plant closed. He's hosted at least a hundred going away parties in his bar them groups of twenty then groups of fifteen groups of forty coming here for their last drink their last celebration their last dinner before they leave town. Everything was the exact same thing. Can't believe it you know it's sad and then these families split up and these friends split up these people who grew up together riding bikes together in the Mahoning Valley. They got jobs together in the plant. They raise their children together with the wages they were getting from the plant they are from this community and then all of a sudden they're all having going away parties and they're leaving. You met a family that is still struggling with the loss of GM the money family. Tell me about your meeting with them. We met the money family who live in Niles Ohio which is not far from Lordstown. I'm Pauline Karen Claire. Nice to live in a lovely kind of suburban community on a on a street that had a lot of single family homes two car. Garages her having her. So there's Kevin Money Who works for GM his wife Holly? I work For our local city the city of Niles and Three kids Cole. Who's sixteen claire and Brooke and Jules who are thirteen year? Old Twins were identical. Yes well one of you need glasses. And the other doesn't yes tonight's house. We sat in the kitchen. Which was all decked out for Saint Patrick's Day holiday I decorated do. And what was life like for them before the plant closed. You know they describe it as this wonderful family. Life of the five of them together and Kevin. Money was the coach of his kids. Basketball team they talked about how he he loved to take. The family out for treats he just show up spontaneously. Hey kids let's go get a desert when the kids were little. I was able to be a stay at home. Mom with them he worked in. I was able to be home with them and until they went to preschool and then I started working after they were fulltime in elementary school sued. You have a sense you know ten years ago or five years ago that this was coming no no should. It felt like GM that job was going to be forever. We felt it was going to be. Yes yes we were comfortable with him going to work. A lot of people from this area were loyal to General Motors. What did they tell you about finding out about the planned closure so GM announced that it was closing the plant or on allocating Chevy Cruz from that plant in November of two thousand eighteen right then Kevin the applied for transfer. Any you know wanted to try to put himself as close to home as he could and he gets the job in Toledo two and a half three hours away and he gets the word they said right before Christmas he got the notice on December. Twenty second it was a Friday. He received it at work and that was Christmas weekend so he gets to notice it work. Does he call you know he waited to tell me that night? He just probably went into in the room late on the bed and shed some tears and then when I came home he said we need to talk in. We cried and cried My husband and I have a great relationship. He's my best friend and family. We always did everything together. We would sit and have dinner where we go out to dinner together. So just knowing that he wasn't going to be here every night. Go to bed or to have dinner together. We that was traumatizing. And then we held it from the kids until the day after Christmas and remember you described it. That Dad has to leave. Dad has to move away. We're going to try everything that we can to keep life as normal as possible for everybody. Tell your memory of that guy off ahead of slate feeling. Something was going on mainly because my dad's been down in his office at a lot prior to that date in the one day. I'm crying in there. And he ended up talking to me and he said he had put in for a transfer. I had to know why I had no clue or reasoning behind it but I knew something was happening. It was like somebody had honestly died. It the feeling felt like there was a death in the family. And they're actually a lot luckier than most because he's able to come home every weekend and be with his family but they had had this life that they loved. You know this this tight knit family that that did everything together when your husband is added to transfer I mean was there any consideration of quitting GM or. That wasn't something we we talked about all possibilities but for him to leave. Gm with twenty five years in and to walk away from a pension. Hopefully.

Closed GM Plant Is Part Of Larger Negotiating Strategy For Striking UAW
"Negotiations between General Motors and striking autoworkers revolve in part around a plant that has shut down six months ago the last Chevy Cruz rolled off the assembly line at Lordstown Town Ohio Emel sheltie reports on what workers are doing now when the UAW last struck General Motors in two thousand seven the thousands of members in Lordstown were ready. They packed the two local union hall signing up for six hour shifts at the nine gates of the sprawling plant in northeast Ohio. Things are very different now. After only a handful of retirees and other volunteers are holding up picket signs celebrating the honks of support from the occasional truck passing by the West Gate here behind behind them are hundreds of acres of empty asphalt surrounding a plant that once employed more than ten thousand people and now employs only ten the picketers sum up why in just just a few words Brotherhood brothers and sisters supporting make it or Ed Rendell says it's a matter of just showing up to represent this place. Somebody's he's gotTa be here. I mean you know if there's no one here which is a signal that we're given up on this player. Rachelle Carlisle isn't giving up. She and her husband are among the thousand. GM employees who transferred to other plants. She's coming back from Michigan. This weekend joined the Lordstown picket line others are on their way to from Missouri Tennessee Kentucky Kentucky. We all keep in contact with each other or all spread out all over the country but also there for each other nearly all the local union leaders were among those who transferred away from here that left it to retirees like Bill Adams to step up. Hey No we don't have a statement. They were using the wreckage. Staples Atom says what the group lots numbers. It makes up in passion. I A lot of anger what happened. The can't understand why a plant that's produce just over sixteen million cars and fifty three years is all of a sudden useless to General Motors. They don't understand that. GM says what happened was pretty simple. American stop buying hang small cars it reacted by cutting shifts and then finally closing the plant in March. Bill Adams doesn't by the company's argument. GM made more than ten billion in dollars in North America last year and the local union has long argued that it could have shifted production of another vehicle here but GM says it has way too much capacity even for better selling trucks. SUV's Adams raises an eyebrow when asked about proposals GM floated just hours before the strike deadline. It was to build electric electric vehicle batteries near here. GM also is negotiating with an electric trucks start up to buy the Lordstown plant but even if both things happen the likely to hundreds of jobs not thousands the former Lordstown workers understand their plant is just one part of a much larger negotiating strategy. When Eric Loomis wrote his book a history of America intense strikes he devoted a chapter to the nineteen seventy-two Lordstown strike back then younger workers wanted more control over working conditions and the fierce clashes between Labor and management extended well beyond the three week strike in the industry that confrontational culture became known as the Lordstown Syndrome and Lordstown is now idled that action played a role in this strike. I think we're seeing a return to the strike as a weapon in in part because a lot of the other options that workers have tried to make life better for themselves shown to say they're not working and workers are getting more determined in a little more desperate when GM am closed the plant it said it recognised and regretted what it was doing to workers but it had to think about the long term viability of the company U.

Members here are also also thinking about viability and they're determined to try to keep their plant an active part of not only the negotiations but of the nation's labor consciousness for N._p._R.

Trump may have made it more difficult for the US to 'win' its trade war with China
"Washington. President Trump says the US would raise tariffs from ten percent to twenty five percent on more than two hundred billion dollars worth of Chinese goods and increase would take affect at twelve. Oh one tomorrow morning unless. Settlement can be reached the threat following charges that Beijing has been trying to backpedal and essentially renegotiate earlier greets. But in the meeting with reporters at the White House earlier today, President Trump also indicated that he received what he described as a beautiful letter from the Chinese president Xi Jinping and would probably speak to him as negotiations continue more from the White House, the vice premiers coming here today, we were getting very close to a deal, then they started to renegotiate the deal. We can't have that. We can't have that. So our country can take one hundred twenty billion dollars a year and tariffs paid for mostly by China, by the way, not by a lot of people try and steer it in a different direction really paid out of his faith for by largely by China. I'm businesses will pour back into our country. So instead of making the product it'll be the old-fashioned way the way we used to do we made our own product. And I think things are going along pretty well. But a large group delegation headed by one of the most respected men. Highest officials of China will be coming in today. They started five o'clock, and they'll see what they can do. But our alternative is is an excellent one. It's an alternative. I've spoken about for years. We'll take in well over one hundred billion dollars a year, we never took in ten cents from China nut ten cents, and it'll be a I think it'll be a very strong day, frankly, but we'll see it was their idea to come back. Just wrote me a beautiful letter just received it and I'll probably speak to him by phone. But look we have two great alternates. Our country is doing fantastically. Well, our numbers at three point two. Don't forget three point to the first quarter is always by far the worst quarter, or at least almost always you look back over the years. First quarter is always weekend. We had three point two GDP. Our unemployment numbers of the best in the history of our country. And we're doing well companies are really doing well, even in Ohio the great state of Ohio yesterday General Motors at my verse stronger jink to put it mildly, very stronger. I wasn't even nice about it. But I appreciate what they did. They sold the the beautiful plant Lordstown they sell that beautiful plant to very very good company that's gonna make electric trucks and that work because I was the only thing they could say about our whole economy Lordstown, they kept saying Lord style Lordstown. And when you had all these great companies spending, billions and billions of dollars coming into our country. They couldn't talk about it. That only mention the one plant. That was a GM plant from a very long time ago. And now, we have a great company going and going to make electric trucks, very appropriate. Those remarks by the president earlier today at the White House and joining us on the phone here in Washington as Bob Davis. He is senior editor for the Wall Street Journal, and can you walk us through specifically the issues on the table between the United States and China? Well, you know, now there's one big issue one big issue. And that is whether the US will go ahead and raise tariffs on Chinese goods, two hundred dollars of Chinese goods. From ten percent to twenty five percent. That is the issue that is dwarfed all the substantive issues that have come before it from China's point of view. Tariffs go into effect. They'll they'll be forced to retaliate if they do that. We're down further down a rabbit hole. This could really create a trade war between the two leading economies of the world. We've been on the edge of a trade war. This is like in trade terms, like high noon, I mean, you know, this is bad as as fraud moment as you get in trade negotiations. So how did they resolve this? Well, one or two ways the Chinese come with concessions that the US considers to be significant enough to either hold off tariffs or to just put tariffs in place for a period of time while they work out work out a deal and get back to this substantive issues that divide in Asians, or you know, it doesn't work out. I mean that the tax go in and we're in for a long period of. Very. Problematic economic news and get these are tariffs that obviously American consumers would see and feel every day the president often mentions the stock market and we've seen some wild moves over the last couple of days because of the uncertainties so where does that put the president? Well, president is a guy who believes in tariffs he calls himself tariff. Man, I think that is actually the way he thinks about things.
