The 7 most interesting cars at the Shanghai auto show

  The 7 most interesting cars at the Shanghai auto show Auto show season marches on. At first blush, the Renault R.S. 2027 is an elegant concept racecar packed with LED lights. But for a concept, it’s actually pretty timid. Whether or not that’s a good thing depends on your point of view. On one hand, the ideas Renault is suggesting with the car (four wheel drive, better fuel efficiency, increased fan engagement) are a more practical take on the next 10 years of Formula One.

General Motors announced today that it will introduce two new all - electric vehicles within the next 18 months, the first of at least 20 new EVs that the automaker will launch by 2023 . GM also renewed its commitment to hydrogen fuel cell technology

GM also renewed its commitment to hydrogen fuel cell technology, a clean fuel concept that still needs major infrastructure upgrades before it can become a viable alternative.

At a press conference in Detroit this morning, GM’s executive vice president of global product development Mark Reuss said that the company was “committed to an all-electric future,” but cautioned that it wasn’t going to happen “by flipping a switch.”

GM has notified a few hundred owners of the all-electric car that it may have a faulty battery that would cause a false range reading.

“These aren’t just words in a war of press releases.”

“These aren’t just words in a war of press releases,” Reuss added. “We are far along in our plan to lead the way to that future world.”

The new cars that will be introduced will be based on “learnings” from the Chevy Bolt, GM’s well-received (and increasingly well-selling) mass-market EV.

GM’s announcement is part of a broader push by automakers worldwide to transition their production toward all-electric vehicles and away from internal combustion engine cars. Last month, Daimler AG, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, plans to offer electrified versions of all of its cars by 2022. Volvo said it would cease production of gas-only vehicles by 2019. And Volkswagen said it would electrify its entire 300-car lineup by 2030.

Could an EV Be the First Production Car to 300MPH?

  Could an EV Be the First Production Car to 300MPH? Electric cars are much more efficient at turning energy into speed. Does that mean the world's fastest production car might someday be battery powered?So does that mean an electric car might be the perfect platform to break 300 mph?

One of the largest car manufacturers in the world has confirmed that it’s going to launch two all - electric cars in the next 18 months. The will be the first of at least 20 all - electric vehicles that GM is aiming to launch by 2023 . “These aren’t just words in a war of press releases ,” he said, adding that GM is far

The automaker is hoping that with 20 electrified vehicles it'll be able to bring EVs to all vehicle segments especially the lucrative SUV and crossover market. GM will release at least 20 all - electric cars by 2023 7mth.

But compared to its competitors, GM’s announcement was slightly more tame, committing to almost two dozen new all-electric vehicles while steering clear of a much grander promise of across-the-board electrification.

“Because of the different regulatory environments and the different duty cycles that our customers want, there isn’t a single year that I can give you on that,” Reuss said.

GM also unveiled a new concept vehicle, the SURUS, or Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure, a fuel cell powered, four-wheel steer concept vehicle on a heavy-duty truck frame that’s driven by two electric motors. Reuss saif that GM’s hydrogen-powered cars will likely lean toward commercial applications, like delivery trucks or ambulances.

This makes more sense than producing retail fuel cell cars, like competitors like Honda, Hyundai, and Kia are doing. Outside of California, the fueling infrastructure for hydrogen cars is practically nonexistent.

Electrification is all the rage in the auto industry, but the cars themselves represent only a tiny fraction of the entire market. Reuss was bullish, though, on GM’s ability to turn a profit. “We will be profitable,” he said. “Period.”
