Following General Motors' global announcement last week revealing the company's vision of a zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion all-electric future, Gary D. West, Urban Active Operations Manager at General Motors International, spoke about the future of mobility and connectivity at GITEX's Transport and Logistics Day this morning.

General Motors announced how it is executing on a major element of their vision of a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion, recently announced by GM Chairman and CEO, Mary Barra.

In July 1971, Apollo 15 astronauts explored the moon in the first electric-powered Lunar Rover, thanks to help from General Motors engineers. Fast-forward to the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, and it's clear once again that GM remains at the forefront of EV engineering. With an EPA-estimated range of 238 miles on a single charge and costing a fraction of the Lunar Rover's $38 million price tag, the Bolt EV has made driving electric attainable for the Earth-bound.

General Motors Middle East has announced that it has appointed Molly Peck, a leader with over 20 years of experience with GM, as its new Chief Marketing Officer. Peck is responsible for all marketing and customer experience strategies and programs for the Chevrolet and GMC brands in the 10 Middle East markets in which GM operates.

General Motors has announced that it completed production of 130 Chevrolet Bolt EV test vehicles equipped with its next generation of self-driving technology at its Orion Assembly Plant located in Orion Township, Michigan. The vehicles will join the more than 50 current-generation self-driving Bolt EVs already deployed in testing fleets in San Francisco; Scottsdale, Arizona and metro Detroit.

With customer satisfaction and service as some of the judging criteria, six of the top dealers from the Middle East were named as 'Grandmasters' - the top honor given to dealers in the General Motors International region.
