GM: Going…going…green?

June 2, 2009

Interesting new website from GM in the wake of its ignominious Chapter 11 1,000 car pileup. We’re crossing our fingers for the Chevy Volt—and all those laid-off workers who hopefully get retrained in the “leaner, greener, faster, smarter” GM promised in the slick vid posted on the site.

RIP, Hummer? Not so fast. Looks like the Schwartzenegger of U.S. automobiles will be pumping iron in China instead. But will future Hummer models get the green light? That’s the electrifying question. There’s an ironic metaphor somewhere in all this, but it eludes me at the moment.
