Not giving up: GM and University of Michigan training alternative powertrain engineers
According to the Ann Arbor Business Review, the 50 engineers will work on alternative powertrain technology that is designed to get more plug-in, standard hybrid, and BEV knowledge into GM's brain bank. Currently, about 25 students are getting masters degrees in energy systems at U of M, a program that was started a year ago. The GM engineers will take courses online and Robert Kruse, GM's executive director of global vehicle engineering for hybrids, electric vehicles and batteries, told the AABR that the program shows GM is "committed to the electrification of the vehicle." Better late than never.
