Ford, GM line up Michigan tax credits for technology

MICHIGAN - Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Corp. are in line for tax incentives from Michigan aimed at helping them create electric vehicles and advanced batteries.

Ford has received a $55 million refundable tax credit to continue work in advanced battery and electric vehicle development.

The incentive is expected to help Ford's recently announced strategy designed to bring four electric vehicles to market by 2012.

General Motors Corp. will get a tax credit worth $6.8 million if it gives final approval to a factory to make battery modules and packs for its Chevrolet Volt.

The tax incentives were announced from the Michigan Economic Development Corp.
