Now, we already know that city cars offer remarkable fuel efficiency, albeit in a tiny package that might not sell well here in the states. We could see a diminutive electric city car as an attractive second-vehicle option for urban dwellers. GM appears to think the same as we do. Reilly added:This segment has great potential – and there are not a great deal of rivals that are successfully exploiting it. That's the reason why we are working intensively on such a project. There is a segment in which wealthier and younger car buyers don't associate status with the size of the car.
Now, if only we could get them to commit to a U.S.-market Chevy version of this city car, we'd be infinitely pleased.Such a car would suit electric drive. With pure electric drive, it becomes easier the smaller the car because you don't need such big battery as in larger cars. Electric drive won't likely be available at first – but it'll come as soon as it is possible.
