GENEVA: GM Europe extends its range

General Motors will put the range extender system used in the Chevrolet Volt and the European Opel/Vauxhall Ampera clone into other vehicles in the future as part of its green assault on the car market.

General Motors will put the range extender system used in the Chevrolet Volt and the European Opel/Vauxhall Ampera clone into other vehicles in the future as part of its green assault on the car market.

Also under development is ‘Project Junior’ a new all-electric city car which will be made at the Opel plant in Eisenach, Germany.

General Motors Europe president Nick Reilly, who is also chief executive of Opel/Vauxhall, said: “The range extender can be used in a number of models ranging from compacts to SUVs and I would expect more in our portfolio over the next few years.”

The priority for Reilly, however, is getting the European organisation back into profit.
