At this point I think General Motors has to be trying to just overload us with recall news so we stop caring.
General Motors has won its third of six “bellwether” cases, with a Texas jury finding that there wasn’t enough evidence to prove a recalled faulty ignition switch caused the death of a driver involved in a crash with a Saturn Sky in 2011.
According to a Chevrolet dealer in Southern California, the all-new, all-electric Chevy Bolt will not be available for pre-order until November of this year—three months later than the original August date announced at the vehicle’s launch, according to a report by CleanTechnica.
The State of Michigan now holds $72 million of Tesla stock for state retirement funds. That would be the same State of Michigan that still bans Tesla from selling vehicles using a direct sales model without dealerships.
General Motors was really excited about introducing the all-electric Chevy Bolt earlier this year, being the only major automaker to bring a practical 200 mile range EV rival to Tesla’s Model 3 to market an entire year sooner. The problem with the Bolt is that it wont be exciting to any American buyers.
Even though all the Hillaman, Sunbeam, Reliant, and Wolseley factories are long gone, there’s still a lot of cars being built in the UK. It seem likely, though, that there will be a drop in those numbers of UK-built cars, because, thanks to Brexit, GM may be taking their toys and going home.
The Chevy Camaro celebrates is 50th anniversary with the 2017 model year. In honor of that, GM just cracked open their time capsule and cut this reel of old Camaro footage over the ages. So, is that volcano real or...?
Heavy-duty 2017 Chevrolet Silverado diesel trucks are getting a new air intake system, fed largely by this big badass hole in the hood. Too bad nobody will tell us if it actually adds any power.
General Motors is currently testing an autonomous version of their Chevy Bolt on public roads. Now, they could do that anywhere, really, but they chose a very particular location instead.
Two questions stood out immediately as Volkswagen got torn apart in their Dieselgate scandal: why was this European carmaker under fire in America, and why weren’t other carmakers implicated as well? One small loophole might be the answer.
At the dawn of the new millennium Chevrolet had an epiphany: “People love pickups but don’t really use them.” So it lopped off the back of an SUV and created the Avalanche; a vehicle with trucky pretenses but Suburban practicality. Slow sales killed it in 2013 and now the concept is back. Backwards.
In their quest to stay relevant as our consumption of cars changes, General Motors dumped $500 million into the ride-sharing app Lyft this year. They plan to be part of the first generation of self-driving taxis, which we’re now hearing will be Chevy Bolt EVs and active within the next twelve months.
In February, we wrote about an anti-direct sales bill in Indiana that General Motors allegedly penned. Before that, we posted about Michigan’s “anti-Tesla” bill, which GM supported as well. Now Elektrek reports that Connecticut just rejected a bill that would have allowed direct sales, and GM was right there in the…
Imagine that you’ve been designing cars for a hundred years, and out of nowhere, some fancy guy in California with no automotive experience thinks he can do your job. And worse yet, he actually can. That’ll get under your skin. Well, a recent finance call with former Chevy Volt chief engineer demonstrated once again…
Ed Welburn, General Motors’ top designer who oversaw the automaker’s modern rebirth with cars like the Chevrolet Camaro and Cadillac CTS, is retiring after 44 years with the company. The good news? His replacement led the design of the drool-inducing sex-machine called the Buick Avenir Concept.
Dionne Spain crashed a Saturn on the New Orleans bridge a few years ago, so she sued General Motors, claiming the wreck was the fault of The General’s faulty ignition switches. This week, in the second of six important “bellwether” cases, a New York City jury disagreed.
General Motors revealed plans to have human chaperones in the first generation of its self-driving vehicles through its partnership with ride-sharing service Lyft, which should only make your trip even more uncomfortable than a current Lyft fare as you and your ambivalent chaperone struggle with the moral complexities…
