A new kind of car for a changing world

You knew it had to happen. Some day somebody would finally build an electric car for this high-tech, recycling, energy-saving world. A car that's not a converted internal combustion engine vehicle with a trunk full of batteries. An electric car that is both responsive and efficient. Designed to go 0 to 60 mph in less than 9 seconds and to cruise almost effortlessly down the highway.

General Motors has built that car. A comfortable, stylish, affordable electric car with enough range to be practical. A versatile electric car you can charge indoors or out. A car that is changing the industry. And helping the world.
