He said the company engineers are working on reducing the mass of the car and improving the battery efficiency as it requires less energy to move a lighter object than a heavier one.
“We know the customers would like to drive electric but are unwilling to pay, and that’s why we’re going to be the first company to (produce) electric vehicles that people can afford at a profit,” Reuss added.
GM will soon introduce a plug-in, all-electric vehicle based on the Cadillac CT6 luxury sedan, and a Buick extended range electric vehicle similar to the Chevrolet Volt.
