GM Establishing Global Battery Electric Vehicle Demo Fleets

Speaking at the “Electrification - Plugging into the Future Forum” today at the SAIC-GM Pavilion at World Expo 2010 Shanghai, GM Vice President of Global Vehicle Engineering Karl Stracke announced that GM is establishing battery electric vehicle demo fleets in different regions around the world using different vehicles.

These demo fleets are intended to increase GM’s competitiveness in vehicle electrification by providing GM with real-world data on driving patterns, battery charging, market needs and customer acceptance while sharing costs and resources with supplier and government partners.

While GM is not yet announcing its partners, a GM spokesperson said that no other automakers are currently involved. Additional details about the battery-electric vehicle demo fleets will be announced in the future.
