Default More Details on the GM BEV

GM also is exploring building an all-electric subcompact car for the Chevrolet brand, the sources said. The battery for that carís powertrain would be supplied by A123 Systems Inc, which was just awarded a contract by GM for unspecified future electric vehicles.

A pure electric Chevy subcompact would be a competitor for Nissan Motor Coís Leaf, which was introduced late last year like the Volt.

GMís subcompact cars under the Chevy brand are marketed as the Sail in China, the Beat in India and the upcoming Sonic in the United States. GM and its China partner, state-owned SAIC, have pledged to work together to develop electric drive vehicles.

A Chevy spokesman declined to comment on those plans. "We are exploring others (body styles), but weíre just not ready to make any announcements," Mike Albano said.
