Green Car Reports: Obama Visits Detroit Auto Show, Checks Out Chevy Bolt EV Electric Car
On January 22, 2016
Only three U.S. presidents in history have visited the Detroit Auto Show in its century-plus of existence: Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1960, Bill Clinton in 1999, and now Barack Obama, yesterday.
At various points during the day, the president lauded the ongoing recoveries of the city of Detroit itself as well as the domestic automakers, including the two that declared bankruptcy in 2009 and had to be rescued with government-backed restructurings early in his administration.
Show organizers noted that Obama stopped at several different exhibits, including those of Chevrolet, Fiat Chrysler, and Ford, as well as German supplier ZF.
