    All-new, E-FLEX-based GM SL-Series

    You all may have remembered my "Green vehicles of tomorrow" thread. I may have stopped replying to it, but the concepts are by far no means dead. I'm still holding to my opinion that GM should have three "green" vehicles available at all its dealerships.

    Here's the first of those three - the SL (Sedan Long) Series. It's a larger alternative to the Prius/FCX - for those who want more room and features.

    Like the other "GM" models, this has three powertrains - a 2-mode hybrid system, plug-in electric system, and fuel-cell system.

    Enjoy.

    Nice, imo, looks like a stretched prius somewhat. What if, however, you use some Volt in it. Such as putting the wheels on the corners, well, not too far on the corners. Keep the front end, the rest imo needs a bit of retooling, otherwise, nice work.

    That's pretty darn good - have you done frontal etc ?

    While I am still not a fan of the prius shape, It doesn't look bad at all, I'm looking forward to a 3/4 view if you have one planned, you last didn't go very badly at all..

    I designed the SL-Series to be a blend of the Sequel concepts and the EV1.

    And, yes, I have a 3/4 planned.
