How #Canada can capitalize on #US auto sector’s pivot to electric
China is already working hard to become the “source of a new way” to power vehicles, U.S. President Joe Biden warned last week.
“We just have to step up.”
Canada has both the resources and expertise to do the same, says Mr. Volpe (President of the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association), whose ambitious Project Arrow concept – a homegrown zero-emissions vehicle named for the 1950s-era Avro interceptor jet – is designed to showcase exactly that.
“We’re going to prove to the market, we’re going to prove to the [manufacturers] around the planet, that everything that goes into your zero-emission vehicle can be made or sourced here in Canada,” he says.
