After more than a century peddling vehicles that pollute the atmosphere, General Motors is ending its relationship with gasoline and diesel.
That product onslaught puts the company at the forefront of an increasingly large crowd of automakers proclaiming the age of electricity and promising to move away from gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles.
In recent months, Volvo, Aston Martin, and Jaguar Land Rover have announced similar moves.
GM’s declaration, though, is particularly noteworthy because it’s among the very largest automakers on the planet.
“We are far along in our plan to lead the way to that future world.”
Reuss did not give a date for the death knell of the GM gas- or diesel-powered car, saying the transition will happen at different speeds in different markets and regions.
