Here’s a couple of nice articles that follow up on some past features on Absolute Michigan. The first, Getting a Jolt from Volt on the GM Fastlane Blog revisits the Chevy Volt (Detroit Auto Show: Chevy Volt an early darling). GM Chairman Bob Lutz writes:
…some cynics accused us of pulling a PR stunt, saying the Volt is simply an attempt by GM to â€œgreenwashâ€ the public and would never be a real vehicle. The truth is just the opposite â€” we are treating Volt just like any other vehicle we do, giving it a dedicated development team and designating resources for it. With that in mind, I thought I’d take a moment to update you on the program so far.
He proceeds to do exactly that and provides a nice update on the actions GM is taking to bring this plug-in hybrid to market.
The second (hijacked from Black Bear Speaks), AutoblogGreen visits the American Electric Vehicle factory – where the Kurrent is made (Spartan Edge test drives the Kurrent Electric Car). They take a tour of the Ferndale factory and also take a lot of great photos!
