GE To Buy 25,000 EVs, Starting With the Chevy Volt

DeviceGuru writes “In what claimed as the largest-ever single electric vehicle commitment, GE plans to acquire 25,000 electric vehicles by 2015. The buying spree will initially involve 12,000 GM vehicles, beginning with GM’s Chevy Volt in 2011. By converting most of its own 30,000-strong global fleet, and promoting EV adoption among its 65,000 global fleet customers, GE hopes to be in a strong position to help deploy the vehicles’ supporting infrastructure, including charging stations, circuit protection equipment, and transformers. In contrast to the all-electric Nissan Leaf, the Volt implements a small gas engine, which can recharge the vehicle’s battery to extend its range beyond the 100 mile limit of all-electric cars like the Leaf, leading some to question the Volt’s EV credentials.”
