Engineers from GM and LG Electronics Partner on Critical Components
DETROIT, Oct. 20, 2015 /3BL Media/ — General Motors set aside traditional vehicle development in selecting LG Electronics as its partner in developing the next generation Chevrolet Bolt EV (electric vehicle), which can travel more than 200 miles on a single electric charge.

I was recently given the opportunity to be a part of a group of bloggers invited by General Motors to attend the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, Mich.
On my blog, The Green Samaritan, I gather and share advice and resources for living the green lifestyle, so I jumped at the opportunity to see the behind the scenes auto show action – especially since I heard rumors Chevrolet might reveal a new electric vehicle.
Fresh from an exciting and informative week in Detroit, my mind is racing.
New model features expressive, sleek design and delivers 50 miles of EV range
DETROIT, January 15, 2015 /3BL Media/ –Chevrolet today unveiled the all-new 2016 Volt electric car with extended range, showcasing a sleeker, sportier design that offers 50 miles of EV range, greater efficiency and stronger acceleration.
The Volt’s new, efficient propulsion system will offer a General Motors’-estimated total driving range of more than 400 miles and with regular charging, owners are expected to travel more than 1,000 miles on average between gas fill-ups.
Utility companies find themselves caught between converging trends that are depressing their revenue: increasing energy efficiency that cuts usage, the rapid growth of renewable energy sources bought at premium prices, and new EPA regulations to limit output from their legacy, coal-fired power plants. The result? Sinking sales, rising costs, and a flat-lining bottom line. Reinventing a decades-old business model in the energy sector will not be not easy. But one thing is clear: the traditional practice of pay-for-volume of use is on the way out.
If you own an electric vehicle and you have solar panels on your house, you can drive around powered entirely by renewable energy. But what can EV owners who don't have solar on their homes do to make sure they're as green as can be? Mike Tinskey and his colleagues at Ford Motor Co. are trying to tackle that problem head on. Ford's promising new C-Max Solar Energi Concept car has solar panels built right into the roof.
