The C3 Take
  • General Motors, in partnership with Las Vegas-based MP Metals, will look to establish a domestic supply chain of rare earth metals.
  • China is currently the world’s main supplier of rare earth materials which threatens stability in our clean energy sector and our national security.
  • Establishing a reliable supply chain for these materials is important, especially as more  manufacturers are increasing their supply of EVs.
  • Private sector innovation is key to unlocking a more reliable and safe rare earth supply chain.

“General Motors has signed a deal to extract rare metals for the motors of electric vehicles in North America, according to a Thursday press release from the automaker. Linking up with the Las Vegas-based MP Materials, the automaker will receive ‘U.S.-sourced and manufactured rare earth materials, alloy, and finished magnets for the electric motors’ ideal for GM’s forthcoming lineup of all-electric vehicles.”
