I think it's nonsense politics. It should be called the Korean car of the year since very little is made in the US. People bash Tesla but it is a more of an American car company in so many respects. GM pretty much outsourced the entire car.
LG supplied an array of new components and systems for the Chevrolet Bolt EV, including:
Electric Drive Motor
Power Inverter Module (converts DC power to AC for the drive unit)
On Board Charger
Electric Climate Control System Compressor
Battery Cells and Pack
High Power Distribution Module (manages the flow of high voltage to various components)
Accessory Power Module (maintains low-voltage power delivery to accessories)
Power Line Communication Module (manages communication between vehicle and a DC charging station)
Whats left, the wheels and a glider? They sure deserve a pat on the back for getting it out soon since it was pretty much all built by another company, Clearly GM is dedicated to making American tech great.
