GM To Manufacture Electric Motors In-House

February 19, 2010

As a Cathedral City GM dealership, we’re proud to be part of some of the most innovative thinking and highest automotive standards, both in automotive history, and looking forward over the coming years.

So we’re particularly excited to have learned last month of GM’s plans to manufacture electric motors in-house, rather than outsourcing the task. This is great news for a number of reasons:

  • Developing electric motors will help GM to provide even more fuel efficient cars. (Chevy already boasts 8 models that get upwards of 30 miles to the gallon, and GMC’s hybrid SUVs and trucks are some of the best in the industry.)
  • Doing the work in-house will not only create more jobs, but will give GM tight control and supervision over the quality of the work. Outsourcing too many individual components opens the vehicle up to unforeseen safety concerns, so GM is stepping up to not solve problems, but prevent them.
  • Keeping electric vehicles affordable. The more middle men, the more cost. Producing GM electric motors in-house will make vehicles like the upcoming Chevrolet Volt some of the most attainable electric hybrids on the market.

At our Cathedral City Chevrolet dealership, you needn’t wait for future developments to pay off. As mentioned, Chevrolet has 8 models that get upwards of 30 mpg (and many more in the high 20s). From the 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt to the new 2010 Chevy Malibu, stop by to get a peek in person.

Jessup Auto Plaza serves many nearby communities, including Indio, Hemet, Banning, Beaumont, Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Yucaipa, and others.
