Tata wins bid to make electric cars for Indian government

Tata wins bid to make electric cars for Indian government

But this week may top it, thanks to one single, massive announcement: General Motors is dumping gasoline in favor of an electric future.

GM has previously announced plans to make some of its future electric vehicles capable of driving themselves in robot taxi fleets.

But GM said its promise takes this commitment a step further, NBC News reported.

General Motors plans two all-new electric vehicles for release in the next 18 months, the first of at least 20 EVs the automaker will launch by 2023 as part of its vision for a zero-emissions future. It will require a two-pronged approach to electrification - battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell electric, depending on the unique requirements.

Automakers, including electric vehicle market leader Tesla Inc, lose money on electric cars because battery costs are still higher than comparable internal combustion engines. As for specifics, I expect that we'll learn more about the first of GM's upcoming electric vehicles over the next few months. Some of the electric vehicles GM will offer in China are among the 20 Reuss promised by 2023.

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry attend #InvictusGames
Both were dressed in jeans, with the prince pairing it with a black polo shirt while his girlfriend wore a pale button-down shirt. After the game, Meghan accomplished another royal duty: shaking hands and chatting with the Australians and New Zealanders.

GM also revealed a new battery architecture that it said would provide greater flexibility to engineer cars and trucks in response to customer demand.

Charles Freese, GM executive director of global fuel cell business, said SURUS is designed for a "wide range of applications", including freight and emergency rescue vehicles such as ambulances and military vehicles for disaster relief efforts. The company offered sneak peeks of three electric vehicle prototypes: a Buick brand sport utility vehicle, a sporty Cadillac wagon and a futuristic pod auto wearing a Bolt badge.

GM has been a pioneer in the development of fuel-cell technology, putting its first prototype on the road four decades ago.

The company's all-electric Chevy Bolt went on sale earlier this year in California and select markets and has recently begun nationwide sales. That's right - they think these 10 stocks are even better buys.

Government mandates, including the latest version of the California ZEV rules, are leading to a rapid adoption of alternative powertrain technologies - even though President Donald Trump's EPA is expected to roll back the strict US fuel economy rules set to phase in through 2025.
