GM taps Detroit/Hamtramck plant to build its electric car
If General Motors Corp. manufactures the Chevrolet Volt, the automaker will build the extended-range electric vehicle in its Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly plant, the UAW said Friday in its summary of the tentative agreement.
I LOVE the concept of the Volt, but the cars design is not practical. They NEED to make a 4 door version of this drivetrain. Think of the complete failure of the Honda Insight and total domination of the Toyota Prius.
I had harped about GM needing to be a leader in innovation and new designs. This is their big chance to make it happen. Critics have said the battery technology wasn't availiable to make this happen, so we'll see.
