Posted on 09/27/2011 10:12:32 AM PDT by traumer
HONG KONG General Motors said Tuesday that it would develop electric cars in China through a joint venture with a Chinese automaker, and would transfer battery and other electric car technology to the venture.
G.M. said the China venture was not linked to its plans to begin importing its Chevrolet Volt electric hybrid to China this year. G.M., which is already the largest foreign maker of conventional vehicles in China, is keen to help define the emerging generation of green-energy automobiles here. And the state-controlled Chinese auto industry is just as eager for expertise from G.M., an acknowledged global leader in car manufacturing.
Tuesdays announcement was being made as the Chinese government was putting heavy pressure on foreign automakers to transfer electric car technology to joint ventures in China. But G.M. took pains to say that its joint-venture agreement was not connected to its plans to begin importing its new American-made Chevrolet Volt plug-in electric hybrid to China this year.
They are not linked, Stephen J. Girsky, G.M.s vice chairman, said in a telephone interview after G.M.s first board meeting in China, held in Shanghai on Tuesday.
Mr. Girsky said that the Chinese government had not requested the transfer to China of specific technologies from the Volt, and that G.M. understood that the Volt would not be eligible for the generous consumer subsidies China offered buyers of clean-energy cars.

G.M. Plans to Develop Electric Cars With China
Shouldn’t that be:
“G.M. Plans to use American Tax Dollars to Help China Build Electric Cars to Compete With American Companies”?
Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie.....That’s all.
Union members should be proud of themselves for keeping jobs in this country! hahahahaha
They are not linked. Every part of GM is linked in one way or another. Geez...we’re not stupid. We know we got robbed.
“G.M. Plans to Develop Electric Cars With China”
Outsourced car manufacturing isnt gonna sit well with Obammie’s supporters.
Once a Marxist....always a Marxist. Obama can never be or think anything else. He is determined to destroy the America that he was raised to hate. It is his religion. It is his crusade. Everything he does is to that end.
What — no tea settings??
Help the commies— buy a gm car.
Anyone who believes that... I’ve got a bridge that’s for sale.
Maybe a Hai Fa Volt will sell for less.
So now the Volt LG battery plant that Obama visited twice in Holland Michigan is going to close????
He made a really big deal about the new jobs in Michigan.
Anybody know how that plant is doing?
Thank-you for raising a Marine. I’m afraid I don’t know what else to say.....now that I’m old and retired I still see the need, but I weep at the losses.
