As automakers race to make cheaper electric cars with greater battery range, General Motors is working on one that can go 200 miles per charge at a cost of about $30,000, a top company executive said. Vice President of Global Product Development Doug Parks wouldn’t say when or if such a car will be built, however. Currently GM sells the $35,000 Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid, which can go 38 miles on electricity before a gas-powered generator kicks in. It also offers the all-electric Chevy Spark subcompact that can go 82 miles on a charge. It starts at $26,685. Electric cars are eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit. The 200-mile car would cost about the same as the current Volt, and it would match the range and be far cheaper than Tesla Motors’ $71,000, all-electric Model S. The Model S can go up to 265 miles on a single charge. A moderately priced electric car with a 200-mile range would make electric cars more appealing to Americans, solving the two chief complaints about such cars: Anxiety over ...

DETROIT — The greenest cars on the market — electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids — have attracted very few buyers so far. But instead of scaling back, major automakers are eager to bring more battery-powered models to their showrooms. Two of the biggest producers, General Motors and Nissan, served notice at the annual Detroit Auto Show that they are in the electric-car business for the long haul. G.M., the biggest American automaker, on Tuesday said it would begin production later this year of the Cadillac ELR, a luxury version of the Chevrolet Volt, the company’s current extended-range plug-in hybrid sedan. Nissan, the Japanese automaker, is taking a different approach to lift sales of its all-electric Leaf sedan. Rather than turn more upscale, it will offer a new base-model Leaf that is $6,000, or 18 percent, cheaper than the current car. Both strategies have the same intent — to lure a wider range of consumers to electric cars. (NYT)

Gov. Cuomo included a program to invest in an electric car network for NY in yesterday's State of the State address. General Motors welcomed this news and is eager to work with the Governor in building electric car infrastructure for the state. Here's GM's statement: "General Motors applauds Gov. Cuomo's NY Charge Program and his focus and enthusiasm for NY to become a leading market for electric vehicles.

A Michigan maker of batteries for electric vehicles, Compact Power, begins placing workers on “rotating furloughs.” FoxNews.com reports, “The facility, which was opened in July 2010 with a groundbreaking attended by Obama [and with $150 million in taxpayer cash], has yet to produce a single battery for the Chevrolet Volt, the troubled electric car from General Motors. The plant’s batteries also were intended to be used in Ford’s electric Focus. Production of the taxpayer-subsidized Volt has been plagued by work stoppages, and the effect has trickled down to companies and plants that build parts for it—including the batteries.” Paul Chesser, of the National Legal and Policy Center, tells Fox, “Considering the lack of demand for electric vehicles, despite billions of dollars from the Obama administration that were supposed to stimulate it, it’s not surprising what has happened with LG Chem. Just because a ton of money is poured into a product does not mean that people will buy it. …Elect ...
Romney ammunition GM Lies Down With Dogs, Wakes Up With Fleas? General Motors CEO, Dan Akerson, delivers remarks on Chevrolet Volt at the GM Hamtramck assembly plant in Hamtramck, Mich., on Nov. 30, 2010. AP ) – In case you haven't heard: General Motors now says it's tired of the smothering hand of government on its operations and wants the Treasury to sell its stake. Treasury says no. Maybe GM should have thought of that when it took the money in the first place. News reports say GM is having second thoughts about letting the U.S. Treasury take a 30% ownership stake and running the company as a semi-private arm of the government. GM now complains its reputation has suffered, and it's having trouble — surprise! — there is trouble getting talented managers to sign on because the government won't let the company pay them enough. But it's worse than that. After taking nearly $50 billion in TARP funds in 2009, GM effectively became a subsidiary of the U.S. government. Since then, a host of government of ...
