GM puts financial hopes in much-hyped electric hybrid car, The Chevy Volt

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

In General Motors Corp.'s 100th anniversary year, the company has been shedding jobs, closing plants and desperately trying to sell increasingly unpopular Hummers, SUVs and other gas guzzlers. Today, on its official birthday, GM says it will roll out 'the future' in the form of its much-hyped electric hybrid car, The Chevy Volt. In order to survive as a company, analysts say the struggling auto giant must build The Volt and successfully market it. Can they pull it off?
