I have already told that General Motors is accelerating its plans for the Chinese in terms of electric vehicles market concerns. Several days ago we showed you the first images of the Buick Velite 5, the first hybrid vehicle of extended range of the firm’s three shields. As we know is a carbon copy of the Chevrolet Volt , which will be sold in the United States and that will not come, commercially speaking, China.
However the Velite 5 will not be the only representative electric General Motors in the Asian countryor. The reason is explained in an internal report of the American giant that has been leaked to the press. This confidential document explains some plans for the future of the group. As we know, General Motors wants to launch 10 new vehicles powered by clean energy by the year 2020.
This information does not take anyone with changed toe, but the next. Apparently in the directive dome of the American group they are thinking about making their electric models in China in a matter of two years. After becoming public this information, I have been forced to confirm it by the company and it has been Matt Tsien, President of General Motors China, who has corroborated the words referred to in this report.
The American Group plans add up to the perfection with which the Asian country’s authorities have. China is betting strongly on power-driven vehicles alternatives, because pollution in its cities is very high. This situation comes in handy to Western manufacturers so they can implement their electrical technology in a less demanding than the American and European market. In this way, when they launch their electrical products in our markets the technology will be more than proven.
China is the first example but not the only one. Gradually more countries will be added as they need to lower the levels of pollution in their cities and thereby promote electric technology advancement. We will have to see how much time passes to make it something widespread among developed countries.
