Announced plans for concern General MotorsJanuary 20, 2019
Merry Barra aims to close 4 plants in the United States.
The general director of the concern GM contouring outlined the immediate prospects for the development of the company.
In particular, in recent years their workshops have been loaded by 30–40%, and have a negative profitability.
Such units are easier and cheaper to start upgrading in advance, without waiting for the loss of funds in the future. One of the areas of modernization will be the transfer of Cadillac on rails for the production of electric vehicles. Already named the first electric model under the brand – BEV3. Its production is scheduled for 2021.
The second topical niche GM sees the creation of autonomous cars for taxi services. The pilot project will be designed for St. Francisco. Chevrolet Volt models will be 100% independent – without steering wheel and pedals. The success of the project is confirmed by pilot lots of cars. Of the 200 thousand produced hybrids and electric machines, all proved to be reliable, not requiring regular battery replacement machines.
At the heart of the machines of the future is the development of high-quality Li-ion elements, modern technologies. It remains to wait for the arrival of such technologies to us.
