Implications - With our society rapidly progressing in the environmental age, this is a strong way for General Motors to propel themselves to the forefront of contemporary design. "By designing and manufacturing electric motors in-house, we can more efficiently use energy from batteries as they evolve," a General Motors spokesman said.
