The Chinese market has huge demand for cleaner cars and electric vehicles right now, due to the strong government incentives. This is causing a number of automotive giants like VW and GM to consider building dedicated factories there in order to take advantage of incentives offered to customers for locally-assembled EV.
But until that happens, GM has decided to import the Volt extended range electric vehicle to eight Chinese cities. But the move is meant more of a way to boost awareness than anything, since the Volt is priced at a staggering $78,300, which is roughly twice what Americans have to pay.

GM is clearly not expecting to shift a lot of these, since only 13 dealers are part of the network in Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Wuxi, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Foshan.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
