Real GM electrical automobile

The GM Hybrid Volt is not selling much and in order to do what everyone wanted and expected GM is planning a real electrical vehicle.
Even after the late-2010 launch date on the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid, GM continues to develop conventional new high-mpg Chevy cars that should cost less than half as much as the $40,000 Volt. The smallest one is called Spark, it's a front-wheel-drive 4-door hatchback smaller than Chevy's Sonic subcompact car. Spark will go on sale in the U.S. during 2012, as a 2013 model.
What is more is that the Spark will have a real electric version.
The success of Nissan Leaf has show the stalwarts at GM that their miserable lie to the public that the Hybrid Volt is an electrical vehicle has failed and in order to do what Obama ordered they have come up with the idea to let the India made Spark be imported to the US and call it an american car all made and assembled outside the US.

India has the Euro crash rated Tata Nano a 52 mpg miser for $3000. Zenn Motors from Montreal makes pure electric for not much more than $10K.
GM is still far over priced. GM will be a laggard here in. Rumour has it some Chinese/Japanese efforts might be underway to produce a standardized electric car where to get anything fixed, just go to Walmart. Plug and play standardized assemblies right down to the brakes, steering, all modular.
GM on the other hand, a has been company. 0bama's Marxist farce on the taxpayers.

It is interesting to see that the electrical cars are growing pretty much everywhere.
The New York Times recently reported that there might be a snag as GM prepares to sell the Chevy Volt in China. According to the article, the Chinese government is refusing to let the Volt qualify for subsidies totaling up to $19,300 per car unless GM transfers some key technologies to a joint venture in China with a Chinese automaker. China has required similar deals in the past with products in other technology areas including wind turbines and water purification. The subsidies represent about half the price of the car

American pricing isn't going to float.

GM owns Opel in Europe and there they are going in for electric.
Energy requirements: Ten times less than modern small car Weight: One third of small car Costs: Solar panel on the garage roof can provide annual energy needs Target customers: Aged 16 and upwards Rsselsheim/Frankfurt. Energy costs, efficiency and lightweight design are in the spotlight at the 64th Frankfurt International Motor Show. Opel is staking a strong claim for the center of attention with an all-new battery-powered electric vehicle. The RAK e opens a new chapter in electric mobility and extends Opels pioneering role in alternative propulsion systems. The radical RAK e is defined by minimal energy costs, 100 kilometers for one euro, one third of the weight of a modern small car, and a maximum speed of 120 km/h.
"We want to develop electric vehicles that everyone can afford. The range-extending concept of the Ampera demonstrates our leadership in electrification of the automobile, the RAK e experimental vehicle aims to deliver pricing that even younger customers can afford. The RAK e has cool looks and production-potential. In future, efficiency will be measured in euros, not liters per 100 km; today we are pleased to present our 1 euro car, said Karl-Friedrich Stracke, Opel CEO, at the world premiere in Frankfurt.
