At a press con­fer­ence in on Tues­day, U.S. Sec­re­tary Pete Buttigieg, along with his Cana­di­an coun­ter­part, Michi­gan Gov. Gretchen Whit­mer, and Detroit May­or Mike Dug­gan announced plans for a 872-mile “bina­tion­al elec­tric vehi­cle cor­ri­dor” that fea­ture EV fast charg­ers every 50 miles and pass through two major his­toric pro­duc­tion cen­ters for the car indus­try.
