A self-proclaimed "car junkie," Biden says the U.S. auto industry is back and better than ever.
"What a difference five years makes. Everything from the mood here at this auto show in 2009, to what you faced back then. Literally, the likely collapse of the automobile industry," said Biden.
Biden says fast forward to now, the future is looking very bright.
"Since Chrysler and General Motors emerged from bankruptcy, you've created 380,000 new jobs. These are middle-class jobs, jobs upon which you can raise a family," said Biden.
Time was carved out of his schedule to make sure he had a chance to see some of the vehicles on display, and for Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, the VP is a true VIP in the Motor City.
"He said over and over, 'America is not going to concede manufacturing to the rest of the world. If we give the auto industry a chance, I'm convinced they can succeed,'" said Duggan.
Biden says future automaking in America will heavily rely on staying on the cutting edge of technology.
"We bet on American ingenuity. We bet on you and we won. You're producing the best product in the world. It's safer. It's more stylish. It's more economical. It's more fuel efficient. It's more powerful. American trucks and cars are more competitive in every market in the world, and we're going to make sure we get more competitive in Japan if I have anything to do with it," Biden said.
