The far-left state of California has fully embraced electric vehicles as they look to advance their climate agenda, but it seems that even that is not enough to convince auto manufacturers to bring their businesses into Gov. Gavin Newsom’s oppressive state.
Honda has plans to build a massive new $4.4 billion facility to manufacture electric vehicles, and they have chosen to snub California as a potential home for the plant, going with the Republican-led state of Ohio instead.
Honda, along with LG who is partnering with them, announced they will use the facility to produce more lithium-ion batteries to account for the expected spike in EV interest after the Biden admin forced through expensive policies designed to provide tax-incentives for electric vehicles.
California, has been attempting to pander to companies planning on building new facilities like this, demonstrating their commitment to ‘green energy’ alternatives by doing things like banning the sale of all new gas-powered cars by the year 2035.
Perhaps even more embarrassing for California, this is not the first time they have been passed over for a facility of this kind.
Panasonic, a major supplier for Tesla batteries, recently made the decision to put a $4 billion plant in the state of Kansas to join other companies like Hyundai and Ford who have similarly avoided the state of California.
No matter how much pandering to the radical left California does, they can’t seem trick anybody into moving into the state.
