Ford halts construction of Marshall EV battery plant

Ford Motor Co. on Monday halted construction of a $3.5 billion electric vehicle battery plant project in the Marshall Islands amid protests over the planned use of Chinese technology by local residents, Republicans in Congress and an auto industry strike in its second week.

Ford spokesman T.R. Reed told The Detroit News on Monday, “We are stopping work, and we will not spend on construction at Marshall until we are confident in our ability to run the plant competitively.” “Are going to be limited.” The company’s business decision involved “many considerations,” he said, but he would not say whether the United Auto Workers’ ongoing strike at Ford and its crosstown rivals was a factor.
