The new engines are being built as part of a partnership with the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp, or SAIC and General Motors. GM recently raised fears among many, including members of Congress, that it was giving away critical technology involving extended-range electric cars to China. GM denied it. This deal could raise those fears again, only this time about internal combustion technology.
Production is expected to begin mid-decade. The engines will be introduced in GM global vehicle programs across multiple vehicles in various parts of the world. Via: USAToday.
