General Motors has announced that it’s hiring 1,000 people over the next couple years to help improve electric vehicle related infastructure, as well as charging, motor and battery technology.
While the jobs aren’t as glamorous as developing the next generation of electric vehicles, there’s no question that without any of the above, EVs will forever be a niche for wealthy tree-hugger types and peak oil conspiracy nuts. All of the jobs will be located in Michigan, which should provide a nice boost to the states flaccid economy.
The announcement came as Chevrolet prepared to start production of the Volt at GM’s Hammtrack assembly plant.
