Anybody else is concerned about the fact that all of Chevy's EVs will be made in Mexico? Most manufacturers that did that had their quality go down.

Also, anyone concerned they are still using LG batteries? (even though they're different technology than the ones that catch fire).

I really like the price and spece, but worried about these 2 issues.

No for both.

LG battery issue was with manufacturing. I'm sure they learned their mistakes and upped their quality. This could be beneficial.

A lot of cars are built in Mexico and are great in quality. Most car assembly is now automated; quality control and design is what matters the most and that depends on investment, not country of origin. For example, Mach-E is built in Mexico and has much better quality than cars built in Fremont by Tesla.

The Equinox will probably be badged "Assembled in Mexico". I think most parts will still be sourced from outside. Its the QC that will make or break.

Lots of cars are being manufactured there to date plus the fact that this won't be GM's first EV. So not much of a concern for me either.

GM confirmed that the Equinox will be built at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant. No issues for me at all that it's being built there.
