According to a report from The Detroit News, General Motors plans on launching a small, urban electric vehicle in the U.S. market. While it’s not clear just which brand it will fall under, or when the vehicle will launch, Opel chief Karl-Friedrich Stracke sees “production potential” in the RAK-e Concept EV that was unveiled in Frankfurt last month that was built for that sole purpose. Maybe it will find its way to America? Additionally, we have learned that General Motors will not be launching anything related to the Chevrolet Volt until 2015.
Chevrolet PR chief Mike Albano told The Detroit News that The General has some announcements to make tomorrow, but won’t say exactly what.
Chevrolet will be webcasting an international press conferance from 8:00-9:00 AM in the morning regarding the brand’s centennial. Later that morning, Chevy will be hosting a press conference for an announcement involving IndyCar, which is believed to be the unveiling of an all-new racing engine for the series. Then later that evening, another press conference will be held promoting the unveiling of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. It’s going to be a busy day.
