"Barra: "Most people think they're giving something up when they drive an electric vehicle, and they're not..." citing instant torque." ... "We recognize the challenge that coal still generates about 30 percent of electricity in the U.S. and 65 percent in China,” Barra wrote in her remarks. “When we improve the percentage of renewable power sources in our grid, we can further reduce the carbon footprint of EVs.” ... "We're optimistic about EVs..." because automakers sold 1.2 million plug-ins or hybrids around the world last year, Barra said." It isn't surprising that Bolt EV production is increasing. There is a pretty good chance it actually outsells the Chevy Sonic in the US and Canada this year... a car that has a starting price less than half the price of the Bolt EV. She is no Elon, but Barra has been making a lot of the right moves for GM and I'm very excited to see where she continues to take the company on EVs! I only hope we also see one of other GM Plug-Ins launch this year! Ya'll think we will see the launch of the Buick / Cadillac plug-ins this year or next?
