GM Plans 500,000 Vehicles with Electrification by 2017

SOURCE: General Motors

DESCRIPTION:

General Motors is paving the way to a greener future by engineering vehicles that utilize renewable energy sources and reduce the impact on the environment.

At last week’s GM Electrification Experience in San Francisco, General Motors kicked that commitment into overdrive by announcing plans to put up to 500,000 vehicles on the road with some form of electrification by 2017 with a focus on plug-in technology.

Since the introduction of the plug-in Chevrolet Volt extended-range electric vehicle in 2010, GM has helped propel EV technologies to the new heights.

Learning from the Volt is being liberally applied to the Chevrolet Spark EV, which will go on sale next year in the certain U.S. markets and South Korea with other markets to be announced soon.

GM is on track to sell more than 50,000 vehicles this year with electrification – between the Volt and eAssist light electrification technology on the Buick LaCrosseRegal and Chevrolet Malibu. The 2014 Chevrolet Impala also will offer an eAssist model when it debuts next year.
