We are glad you share the interest in the future of electricity’s potential. Last time you stopped by, we shared plenty of detailed information about General Motor’s endeavors involving fully electric cars. This week, we are sharing more about this and inviting home owners to make residential electrical upgrades to make homes more energy efficient.

Now we shall get back to discussing the news in the world of electricity. Electric cars have been around and mainly under one big name, Tesla. General Motors has not mentioned any ill words about their competition.
However, ninety percent of electric cars sold in the United States last year were Tesla models. In fact, CNN states that Tesla is the leading electric vehicle manufacturer in the world. Tesla built a monstrous battery factory in Nevada.
They already have a new car factory in China and is building another new factory in Germany. Americans appreciate that Tesla builds cars in at its factory in Fremont, California. Also, this is where General Motors and Toyota once built their cars.
Electric car sales:
Less than two hundred fifty thousand electric vehicles were sold in the Unites States last year according to Cox Automotive. It is safe to say that lawmakers, citizens, and car manufacturers are aiming to make that number higher for the sake of Earth and its inhabitants.
Car emissions pollute the Earth. Plus, electric vehicles are trendy but just tend to be out of many people’s budgets. Alternatively, the electric cars that are in their price range are far too small for their family size. Many affordable electric cars cannot sit more than two car seats in the backseat comfortably.
Many families are desiring an electric vehicle to fit their family of five comfortably and for long road trips. Third party forecasters are predicting that number of sales to rise to three million units by 2030. We would love to see that!
General Motors’ own analysis predicts that number could be much higher once more models are made to accommodate more needs and desires. Also, this number is predicated to rise once charging networks grow. As of right now, the charging markets tend to be a large factor in opting for traditional gasoline fueled vehicles.
GM shared their engineers are already one step ahead. They are working on next-generation battery cells that could supply six hundred miles of range per charge. GM and Honda recently previewed a head-turning model.
The Cruise Origin is a self-driving vehicle. The automakers boast one hundred sixty years of experience between the two of them. The six-seat vehicle has no steering wheel, brake pedal, gas pedal, or accelerator pads, windshield wipers, or rearview mirror.
As if this vehicle didn’t captivate us enough, the car does not have an obvious front or back. Its doors also slide rather than swing open like traditional cars. Customers cannot purchase a Cruise Origin.
Instead, this will be more like public transportation. Cruise is a ride-sharing app through GM, and Honda has invested in it. Public transportation and ride-sharing is much more common in geographically smaller countries, so it is about time the United States figures out a trendy, safe way to reduce emissions by going electric.
