LAKE ORION, Mich. – The General Motors Orion Assembly plant that builds the Chevrolet Bolt EV ranks as the eighth largest user of green power generated onsite in the United States among the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership Partners. Over half of the plant is powered by methane captured from decomposing trash in a nearby landfill.

Orion Assembly saves $1 million a year by using renewable energy. The plant is also home to a 350-kilowatt solar array that sends energy back to the grid. GM’s goal is to promote the use of 125 megawatts of renewable energy by 2020, and it will exceed that goal later this year.

GM is one of 60 multinational companies in the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance, which works to identify barriers to buying clean energy and develop solutions to meet growing demand. Groups like these, along with policy support, help to drive and scale renewable energy at an effort to reduce costs.

Orion Assembly is committed to energy efficiency. GM’s painting process at the plant gives the Bolt EV its glossy sheen while at the same time contributing to a reduced environmental footprint. The “three-wet” process allows three layers of paint to be applied to the car followed by a single trip through the oven, saving energy and space previously used by additional equipment.

ASPEN, COLO. – Lyft and General Motors today announced the expansion of their Express Drive short-term vehicle access program to California and Colorado, including the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV.

Launching in San Francisco in the summer of 2016 and in Los Angeles by the fall, Express Drive’s California members will have access to vehicles from the largest electric vehicle fleet in ridesharing, including the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV and the extended-range electric 2016 Chevrolet Volt. Express Drive will also launch operations in Denver by the fall of 2016. In San Francisco, Los Angeles and Denver combined, over 130,000 people who applied to become Lyft drivers but didn’t have qualifying cars will now have the opportunity to drive on the platform.

The expansion follows successful launches in Chicago, Boston, Washington D.C. and Baltimore. Since March, the Lyft-exclusive program has seen tremendous interest and adoption.For example, Boston’s program reached a full subscription in less than 4 days, 30 percent of new Lyft-driver applicants in Chicago requested an Express Drive vehicle, and Lyft drivers have earned nearly $2 million in the program to date.

DETROIT – Five Chevrolet vehicles led their segments in the J.D. Power 2016 Initial Quality Study. No other brand has more J.D. Power Initial Quality awards than Chevrolet — for the fourth consecutive year.

This follows the brand’s strong showing in the 2016 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study, where Chevrolet also had more models ranked highest in its segments than any other brand.

The Silverado swept the full-size truck categories, with the Silverado 1500 receiving the top marks for light-duty trucks and the Silverado HD receiving the top marks for heavy-duty trucks. Equinox led the compact SUV segment (in a tie), with study results that were 15 points better than the segment average. The Tahoe lead the large SUV segment, with study results that were 19 points above the segment average. Finally, the Spark dominated the city car segment, with study results that were 48 points higher than the segment average.

If your paying for recalls then you're getting taken advantage of but it has nothing to do with GM but the dealer cheating you and if you do your research you would know how to report them and get all your money back.

DETROIT - Cadillac sold 25,785 new vehicles globally in June, an increase of 13.8 percent driven by the brand’s two all-new products, the CT6 prestige sedan and XT5 luxury crossover.

Strong growth in the brand’s three largest markets fueled the June global sales increases. U.S. sales increased 5.5 percent for the month, accompanied by gains of 33.7 percent in China and 13.5 percent in Canada. For the year to date, Cadillac sales in China are up 16.2 percent.

The new 2017 XT5 luxury crossover model sold 6,719 units in June, which was just its third month of sales in the U.S. and its second month in most export markets. The critically acclaimed CT6 prestige sedan registered its highest sales since its launch earlier this year, benefitting from an acceleration in its production rate. Escalade sales surged more than 15 percent in June, as well.

In the U.S., the brand experienced volume growth while continuing to earn a more premium position in the marketplace. Cadillac average transaction prices were $54,279 (according to J.D. Power Information Network, June 12), the highest among full-line luxury brands.

It would be nice if you would bring back just for a short. Of time the 1953 to a 1959 Corvette style Body people looking for small cars like that not high performance not 800 horsepower they're looking for something cool that they can drive around should have never gotten rid of the satern silhouette or they should have never gotten rid of the Pontiac version of the small car my opinion but asking around people would be definitely interested if you could get a inexpensive Corvette coupe from like the 1953 - 1959 do your homework to study if I'm wrong thanks just my opinion again

DETROIT – Robotic glove technology developed out of a partnership between General Motors and NASA for use on the International Space Station is finding new life on Earth in health care, manufacturing and other industrial applications though a licensing agreement between GM and Bioservo Technologies AB, a Swedish medical technology company.

Working with GM, Bioservo will combine technology from its SEM GloveTM (Soft Extra Muscle) technology with the RoboGlove, a force-multiplying battery-powered wearable developed by GM and NASA during a nine-year collaboration that included the launch of the humanoid robot called Robonaut 2 (R2) into space in 2011.

The RoboGlove uses leading-edge sensors, actuators and tendons that are comparable to the nerves, muscles and tendons in a human hand. One design requirement for R2 was to operate tools designed for humans, and developers achieved unprecedented hand dexterity. That technology was applied to the RoboGlove.

GM intends to be the first U.S. manufacturing customer for the refined robotic glove and will test it in some of its plants. Bioservo will make and sell the new glove for a variety of uses including medical rehabilitation and any place additional gripping strength is needed.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – General Motors, the Office of Naval Research and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory are cooperating to incorporate automotive hydrogen fuel cell systems into the next generation of Navy unmanned undersea vehicles, or UUVs.

Hydrogen fuel cells convert high-energy hydrogen efficiently into electricity, resulting in vehicles with greater range and endurance than those powered with batteries. Under the ONR’s Innovative Naval Prototype program for Large Displacement UUVs, energy is a core technology in the Navy’s goals for vehicles with more than 60 days endurance.

The Naval Research Laboratory recently concluded an evaluation of a prototype UUV equipped with a GM fuel cell at the heart of the vehicle powertrain. The tests, a key step in the development of an at-sea prototype, were conducted in pools at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Carderock, Md.
