Is General Motors Serious About Electric Cars Or Not?

General Motors was once the boogeyman of the electric car world, thanks to its active involvement in ending the original California Zero Emission Vehicle mandate and crushing a whole lot of perfectly good, operation cars in the form of the EV1.

But in recent years, its attitude toward electric cars has evolved, producing both the Chevrolet Volt and more recently the Chevrolet Bolt EV.

Last week, in response to the period of consultation in the U.S. for rolling back CAFE standards, GM called on the current administration to bring about a nationwide ZEV mandate in the U.S.  A few days later, it expressed opinion that the previous CAFE targets (as set by the Obama administration) weren’t appropriate and were too tough.

So is GM in favor of electric cars or not?
