Volkswagen advertises Chevrolet Bolt as part of Dieselgate settlement

In one of the quirks of its Dieselgate settlement, Volkswagen has begun rolling out an advertising campaign promoting its competitors. In the just-released advertisement, a driver stops at a traffic light in his poorly-disguised Subaru Outback, with The Flintstones theme song. A different, cleaner shaven, and seemingly happier version of himself, with an restrained dog in the front passenger's seat, then pulls up in a Chevrolet Bolt with The Jetsons music playing in the background.

Chevrolet Bolt SUV revealed

General Motors (GM) has given a first look at its upcoming electric crossover, based on the Chevrolet Bolt. Mary Barra, CEO for GM, presented at the Barclay's 2017 Global Automotive Conference in New York this week, and cheekily revealed the new model ahead of its market introduction by 2020. Just a single image was shown, and we can see that the new little electric SUV definitely has its own design identity, though there are similarities between it and the Bolt (below).

GM will be first to make EVs at a profit, says former Holden chief

General Motors will be the first automaker to produce electric vehicles at a profit, Mark Reuss, former head of Holden and currently GM's head of global product development, has claimed. According to The Detroit Bureau, Reuss told reporters: “We know the customers would like to drive electric cars but are unwilling to pay any more for them. That’s why we’re going to be the first company to sell electric vehicles that people can afford at a profit."
