The electric-car revolution gives Michigan a chance to recruit new blood and reinvent its image.

Anthony Earley, chairman and CEO of DTE Energy, as well as a Ford board member, said 40000 new jobs should be on their way by 2020 because of electric cars .

"...And so, here we are again, 100 years later," said Ford, who predicted that Michigan is about to experience a rush of intellectual capital, the same sort of thing that happened 100 years ago when the automobile started to become mainstream.
