The downfall of General Motors

The downfall of General Motors By Micheline Maynard The New York Times Posted: 06/01/09, 9:00 PM PDT | It is a company that helped lift hundreds of thousands of American workers into the middle class. It transformed Detroit into a symbol of the industrial prowess of the United States. It built iconic cars, like Cadillacs, that became synonymous with luxury. And now it is filing for bankruptcy, something that would have been unfathomable even a few years ago, much less decades ago, when it was a dominant force in the American economy. Rarely has a company fallen so far and so fast as General Motors. And while its bankruptcy appeared increasingly likely in recent weeks, the arrival of the ...

GENERAL MOTORS ELECTRIC CAR

by Bob Hagin Many years ago, Ford had a promotional motto that stated There’s a Ford in your future. That same motto may be applicable to the General Motors electric car, the EV1, but the slogan would have to be modified to read . your very distant future. Sales of the EV1 are anything but great. Actually sales isn’t even the right word to use here since you can’t buy an EV1 outright at this point. The car is only available from specially chosen Saturn dealerships on a three-year lease and at that, they’re only being placed in the right homes. Since it’s academic anyway, no one at General Motors has come with a sales price for the EV1 but a cost of around $30,000 ...

From Carriages to Motor Cars One of McLaughlin’s three sons planned to be a chemist; he went to the United States and established the Canada Dry Company. The other two became partners of the McLaughlin Carriage Company. Around 1901, sons Sam and George went for a ride in the company bookkeeper’s automobile. Immediately hooked, they tried to persuade their father that making a horseless carriage would be a profitable venture, but he remained unconvinced, and Sam and George had to research the matter surreptitiously. In 1905, Sam test-drove several motor cars but quickly decided that the Buick was the car he wanted to make in Oshawa. He nearly came to a manufacturing agreement with an ...

Ex-GM CEO Bob Stempel, clean air and EV1 pioneer, dies at 77 Updated Bob Stempel, the engineer who took over as CEO of General Motors after the much-maligned Roger Smith was dumped, has died at 77.

Also in the lede The car’s discontinuation remains controversial, with electric car enthusiasts and environmental interest groups accusing GM of self-sabotaging its electric car program due to its negative profitability, while also blaming the oil industry for conspiring to keep electric cars off the road.[1] So the nutjobs think that GM should have persevered with an unprofitable program? How is that self sabotage? Just because a reference says it is so (does it?) it doesn’t need to go into the lede. Greglocock (talk ) 01:02, 30 August 2009 ...
