General Motors Will Release Chevy Volt Demo Fleet in China

General Motors wants to make its plug-in Chevrolet Volt more popular in China and it will soon have this opportunity after GM’s Chinese division reached an agreement with the China Automotive Technology Research Center (CATARC) to manage the fleet for a year.

GM and CATARC want to find out how the Volt will perform in the Chinese environment, so they also began to set up charging stations at it’s headquarters in Shanghai, in Beijing, at SAE China Office and Tsinghua University.

The CATARC officials consider this partnership to be very important. In this way Volt provides them with precious information in preparing the Chinese market for future electric vehicles.

Also, GM is testing out a new market after it’s relative failure in the United States. Last year they missed their goal to sell 10,000 units of Chevy Volt by about a quarter, and last month they started a five week shutdown of the production in order to get some of the GM electric vehicles off the dealer’s lots.
