President to visit GM and Ford hybrid plants
George Bush has not been particularly friendly to the Detroit based car-makers of late. He repeatedly put off meetings with the car-maker chiefs in the latter part of 2006. But the White House has announced that the president will be making a road trip on Tuesday, paying a visit to two of the domestic brand plants that are currently building hybrids. He will start his day at the General Motors Fairfax, Kansas plant that recently started building the the Saturn Aura Green Line and will add the Malibu Hybrid. After that he will shuttle over to the Ford Kansas City plant to see where the Escape/Mariner hybrids are built and deliver a speech.
