    Forget about six-figure super-sedan battles on fancy German racing circuits - it's all a sideshow to what really matters in the electric vehicle realm: range and cost. The world doesn't electrify in the manner envisioned by our most revered environmentalists without affordability and the ability...

    The future is electric, says GM, so why bother with a stopgap? That's according to Mark Reuss, who recently spoke to the Wall Street Journal. Reuss argues that electric vehicles are a richer area of investment than hybrids in the interview, suggesting that GM will instead focus on pure EVs...

    The future is already here, it's often been said; we just don't realize it yet. How's this for the future: an inconspicuous little one-box hatchback that can parallel-park with the best of urban hoppers, cram all the antique furniture and Meow Mix as necessitated by a sane person, then launch...

    As part of its penance for pumping untold amounts of smog-causing pollutants into America's air over the span of roughly six years, Volkswagen paid a steep price. Yes, there was the financial cost of the diesel scandal - a price tag topping $20 billion, covering fines, buybacks, repairs, etc...

    If you're shopping for an electric vehicle and want more than 200 miles of range, you pretty much only have two options right now: the Chevy Bolt or a Tesla. That might explain why they're the two best-selling EVs on the market right now and the only two at risk of slipping over the 200,000...

    Remember the Enspire? It's looking increasingly likely that GM will use a version of the Bolt's chassis to form the basis of that, and another CUV in the near future.

    As promised by General Motors CEO Mary Barra in March, GM plans to crank out additional Chevrolet Bolts at its Orion Assembly Plant in Michigan later this year. The need for extra output isn't because of rising sales in the United States, however. In GM's second-quarter 2018 sales report, the...

    GM Inside News has uncovered a trademark application from GM for the name "AV1." Though the application is still under review, the name would apply to motor vehicles and may hint at a future Cruise Automation product. Known informally as the Cruise AV (short for autonomous vehicle), GM is...

    The autonomous Bolts GM's self-driving start-up has running around San Francisco have been involved in 22 accidents during 2017-- none of which were the software's fault, legally that is. Cruise Automation has been using a fleet of self-driving Chevrolet Bolts to log autonomous miles in an...

    Depending on who you talked to, the looming removal of the $7,500 federal tax credit for electric vehicles was either no big deal, or akin to the firebombing of Mother Earth. Much disagreement existed even among the ranks of environmentalists and EV proponents. Well, worry no more, EV fans. You...

    General Motors is taking the slow and steady approach when it comes to sales of the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt, which might be the right path for a highly complex new car. Reviews show it to be a well-composed vehicle with decent fit and finish but, like any new car, there are some teething...

    It was my shooter, Myle, who picked up the Chevrolet Bolt press car we had for the week. I was too busy getting my ass massaged in a Lincoln Continental in the meantime. Besides, Myle owns a house, and I live in a crummy apartment, so it made more sense for him to park his all-electric Bolt EV...

    The 82-mile, all-electric Chevrolet Spark EV died a quiet death in the summer of 2016, and no one cares.
