General Motors chairman Rick Wagoner will be making a speech this Wednesday at the Los Angeles auto show and is expected to make some announcements about upcoming alternative fuel vehicles the company is working on. Apparently Wagoner isn't expected to discuss details or unveil actual vehicles, but will instead outline GM's plans and strategy for rolling out new hybrids, electric vehicles and hydrogen vehicles over the next few years. The series hybrid that they are developing along with the new parallel hybrids coming in 2008 will probably be the highlights. Product details and actual vehicle unveilings are still likely to come in January at the Detroit auto show. This speech is mostly to try and deflect some of the criticism GM got in the wake of the movie "Who Killed the Electric Car?" for their actions with the EV1 electric car.
