GM is transforming Cadillac into an electric brand

General Motors is turning Cadillac into its lead electric vehicle brand in a bid to compete against Tesla as well as a host of other automakers bringing EVs onto the market. Plans are already underway to introduce the first model from the company’s new battery electric vehicle architecture, GM said Friday during an investor meeting. GM said this new BEV architecture will be the foundation for an advanced family of “profitable EVs,” a  word choice  likely meant to express the automaker’s convi...

Was 2018 as Good a Year for Electric Vehicles as They Say?

Teslas galore. But at the Tesla factory, not on the streets of most cities. Supporters of battery electric vehicles (EV and/or BEV) are rapturous about the 81% increase in electric vehicles sold in 2018 compared to 2017.  This table shows the breakdown, with a total of 361,307 vehicles sold in the US in 2018, compared to 199,826 sold in 2017. We should add a disclaimer.  We love electric-powered vehicles.  We’d like nothing more than to get a fully loaded Tesla, and, failing that, just about an...

Confirmed: Chevrolet’s Bolt Loses Its Full Tax Credit In April, but Not the Doomed Volt

Good news for would-be Volt owners? Not really. Chevrolet’s soon-to-be-discontinued plug-in hybrid won’t live long enough to suffer the indignity of a halved federal EV tax credit. It’s dead in March, though remaining examples of the car everyone should want will no doubt linger on lots through the spring. On Wednesday, General Motors announced, as expected, […] The post Confirmed: Chevrolet’s Bolt Loses Its Full Tax Credit In April, but Not the Doomed Volt appeared first on The Truth About Cars...

General Motors a lesson in government overreach

The thing to remember about General Motors, which just announced plans to close three plants in Ohio, Michigan and Ontario, cutting about 14,000 jobs, is that the company doesn’t operate under capitalism. Its statements have to be analyzed politically, not financially. In capitalism, the government’s role is limited to setting the rules of the road so innocent people aren’t killed in somebody else’s crashes. But in the system in which General Motors operates, the government’s role is to create a...

Trump Says Admin Is Exerting ‘A Lot Of Pressure’ On GM For Layoffs, Closures

DETROIT (AP) — General Motors will cut up to 14,000 workers in North America and put five plants up for possible closure as it abandons many of its car models and restructures to focus more on autonomous and electric vehicles, the automaker announced Monday. The reductions could amount to as much as 8 percent of GM’s global workforce of 180,000 employees. The restructuring reflects changing North American auto markets as manufacturers continue to shift away from cars toward SUVs and trucks. In...

By TOM KRISHER and ROB GILLIES DETROIT — General Motors will lay off up to 14,000 factory and white-collar workers in North America and put five plants up for possible closure as it restructures to cut costs and focus more on autonomous and electric vehicles. The reduction includes 8,100 white-collar workers, some of whom will take buyouts and others who will be laid off. Some U.S. factory workers could transfer to truck or SUV factories that are increasing production. Most of the affected facto...

Limited Edition Nike Mercurial GS360 Released

Inspired by the first true special edition boot release in 2012, “Greenspeed”, Nike has created a limited-edition Mercurial GS360 in the original Volt and black colorway.

It makes them the “greenest” boot on the market, even the box is made of recycled cardboard. The design is inspired by the current Mercurial silo, but it has its own unique elements.

Pricier Chevrolet Bolt, Volt Loom as GM Nears Tax Credit Threshold

It looks like General Motors won’t enjoy its tax incentive advantage over Tesla for all that long.

2019 Chevrolet Volt: The Overlooked ‘Electric’ Wants You to Plug In More Often

It’s not a pure EV, but in the early part of this decade, Chevrolet’s Volt offered one of the few mass-produced electric driving experiences on the market. Now in its second generation, GM’s “extended-range electric vehicle” — which packs a 1.5-liter gas generator — has seen its status dwindle as all-electric competitors rivals sprout like dandelions […] The post 2019 Chevrolet Volt: The Overlooked ‘Electric’ Wants You to Plug In More Often appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2019 Chevrolet Volt Doubles Recharging Speed

Chevrolet is taking a different approach to decreasing range anxiety with the 2019 Volt. While range remains the same at 53 miles in pure EV mode and 420 miles in total, Chevrolet focused its improvements on increasing charging speed and efficiency, with the goal of making the existing range more usable. The highlight of this approach is a new 7.2 kilowatt charging system, which is standard on the Volt Premier and optional on Volt LT. The system slices charging times by nearly half, down to 2.3 ...

If You Want a Chevrolet Bolt, You Should Get One This Year

Officially, the Chevrolet Bolt starts at $37,495 including destination. But because it qualifies for a $7,500 federal tax credit, the base price is effectively less than $30,000. Further sweetening the deal, many states offer additional rebates or tax credits to reward buying electric vehicles. Once Chevrolet sells more than 200,000 fully electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, though, that changes. According to official estimates, Chevy will pass that mark later this year. “ Our forecast will put...
