I had a chat with one of the "higher ups" at the GM plant in Oshawa about why they don't have auto plants in the South.

Humidity.
And salt water.

Both factors = EXTREMELY bad conditions for building cars. So much so that the cost of air conditioning the entire plant far outweighs any problem with snow in the north. Granted, their test was done in Miami, but they said smaller tests were done across the South with similar results.

Better cold than rusted.
