General Motors says its EN-V concept might be tested in large citiesWed, 12 Oct 2011
General Motors is working on a second generation of its EN-V electric-car concept and might test the two-seat, pod-shaped vehicle in large cities around the world.
The EN-V will wear the Chevrolet badge. It is designed to communicate with other vehicle and city infrastructure to minimize congestion.
"By 2030, more than 60 percent of the world's 8 billion people will live in urban areas," said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing and strategy. "The Chevrolet EN-V represents a possible solution for global customers living in markets where alternative transportation solutions are needed."
The EN-V was first unveiled at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. Among the battery-powered vehicle's features are autonomous driving capability, storage space and all-weather driving capability.
