The future of urban mobility is connected, autonomous, electric, and wireless. And Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI) is one of the companies leading the charge — figuratively. Qualcomm™ Halo®, our wireless electric vehicle charging (WEVC) technology, is a simple and efficient way to charge electric vehicles (EV), helping drive a cleaner and smarter future for urban mobility.
General Motors has designed the Chevrolet Volt and Bolt EV for markets across all 50 states and around the world – a demonstration of the company’s commitment to electrification. While growing the electric-vehicle market is a more complex challenge than simply bringing a new car to the dealership showroom, Chevrolet focuses on marketing and education efforts to help drive consumer adoption.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV just received an EPA-estimated range rating of 238 miles per charge. And GM just committed to meet its entire electricity needs at all of its global operations using renewable energy by 2050.
Chevrolet recently sold its 100,000th Volt – America’s first plug-in to reach the milestone. Owners have driven almost 1.5 billion miles in EV mode out of a total 2.5 billion cumulative miles, saving nearly 58 million gallons of fuel. That is enough gasoline to fill more than 87 competition-size swimming pools.
GM Strengthens Business, Communities through Mobility The rules of vehicle use and ownership are changing rapidly, according to GM’s latest Sustainability Report (gmsustainability.com). Connectivity, car-sharing, alternative propulsion and autonomous vehicles are key elements toward a future of safer, cleaner and more efficient mobility options for customers.
The transition to a clean-energy economy is underway.
Britta Gross, director of Advanced Vehicle Commercialization Policy at General Motors, spoke to a room of more than 500 sustainability professionals at the Ceres Conference in Boston about moving electric vehicles into the mainstream.

So what’s it going to take to grow this niche market?

This is why it’s so important that we increase fuel efficiency in our vehicles. Driving-as-usual is horribly wasteful. It’s harmful to our environment and it forces us to spend money on things we don’t really care about.
