Who would have thought that? An EV from GM showing the Tesla Model 3 all over the sales stats.
It is very easy to lose weight to General Motors when it comes to sustainable mobility. For years they have sold automotive antiques like new cars. Every year they patched up a few old models with helbak technology. Get a new pick and go with the banana. Except for a few great cars, things were really sad.
Despite hardly any dollars being invested in car development, General Motors had to hold out their hand with the US government because they couldn’t overcome the credit crunch without state aid. They got the support, but then GM had to focus (much) more on innovation instead of just spooning ancient V8s into pickups.
