The Jeep Liberty is manufactured at the Cherokee plant that the President will tour and the new, highly anticipated $41,000 all-electric Chevy Volt is manufactured at the General Motors plant in Hamtramck.

President Obama’s trip to the Motor City and tour of facilities of two of the three major U.S. automakers is to tout the success of the administration’s bailout of the auto industry. According to the New York Times, White House officials assert that without the $60 billion bailout of General Motors and Chrysler, more than a million jobs would have been lost. Instead, only a third of these jobs have been lost and the two companies have hired a total of 55,000 new workers.

Today’s complete itinerary is here: President Obama official schedule and guidance, July 30, 2010.
