Report: Clean Vehicles Create More Manufacturing Jobs

What do Ohio, Kentucky, and Alabama all have in common? They’re full of new jobs. Along with the rest of United States, it seems that the auto industry has actually started to rise up from the ashes of recession. As our engines become greener, our futures just might continue to follow suit.

Key Takeaways:

  • Car manufacturers have seen a significant boost in jobs since clean cars/ electric cars have become more acceptable.
  • We can foster a strong economy, build jobs in manufacturing and protect the environment at the same time.
  • Most of the growth has been in the manufacture and assembly of lightweight parts, turbo charged engines and advanced technology that goes into individual car systems.

“Although electric cars and other advanced-technology vehicles make up a very small portion of the U.S. vehicle market, a new report suggests that they have far greater significance to the economy—and an oversize role in creating U.S. jobs.”
