"This is new territory for most of us".

The North American International Auto Show kicked off Saturday with the 10th annual luxury event, The Gallery, during which guests were able to stroll through a $7 million collection of the most exotic and extravagant automobiles. The auto is built in the nearby Orion plant.

Asked what she would tell the President-elect in order to protect free trade, Barra said, "Our general principle is to build where we sell, and that is primarily what we do both in China and the United States". So, the award is a bit of a bait and switch for buyers looking to grab a Bolt fresh off its big win. Electric vehicles have failed to catch on with most American consumers amid low gas prices.

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica was named the 2017 North American Utility of the Year today during a special ceremony at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The expansion will create 2,000 new jobs.

The Bolt EV features an all-electric driving range of 238 miles, putting it on par with the Tesla Model S and X when it comes to just how far it can travel on a single charge.

The new Honda Ridgeline stuck with that formula, but adopted a more truck-like exterior design while adding an assortment of new features - from a trunk-like storage bin to an advanced suite of safety features - that have resonated with consumers, as well as the 60 US and Canadian journalists on the North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year, or NACTOY, jury. Green Car Journal also heralded the Bolt EV as the Green Car of the Year and Green Car reports named it the Best New Car to Buy.

Trump has criticized the industry's strategy of building cars in Mexico and then shipping them to the U.S. He has threatened a 35 percent border tax and said the cars should be built in the U.S.by American workers.

Mark Reuss, GM's head of global product development, describes the Bolt as a "moon shot".
