GM's EN-V Aims to Convert Chinese Commuters to Electric Vehicles
In China's cities, a couple of hundred million people commute to work every day on electric bicycles. Those people would love to have a car, which would cost a bit more but would offer protection from the rain.
General Motors is trying to figure out how to offer them an upgrade - an affordable electric car for people who commute on two wheels. During a recent trip to China, I saw GM's first attempt at an entry-level electric car: the EN-V, a two-wheeled Jetsons-like vehicle on display in the lobby of GM's Shanghai office.
"This is like upgrading from a black and white TV to a color TV," says John Du, director of GM's Science Lab.
