    In 4 years, the Chevy Volt could morph into a crossover, meanwhile Bolt production ramp rumor clarified

    A little nugget of information came our way while reading a Reuters report on UAW and their reaction to a car sale slump at GM.


    GM is reviewing whether to cancel at least six passenger cars in the U.S. market after 2020, including the Chevrolet Volt hybrid, which could be replaced in 2022 with a new gasoline-electric crossover model, Reuters has learned from people familiar with the plan.

    Gosh it is hard to believe how slow the auto industry is compared to others like the electronics industry. Can you imagine Apple’s iPhones in 2022? Who will be President then? Will we have a civilization on Mars?

    I really don't understand why all the EVs right now are pretty much rollerskates when crossovers are by far the highest selling segment. People would consider them much more seriously if they had more utility. At least the Bolt is a hatch (and it's a shame the Model 3 isn't) but it's still very small. Of course there is Model X, but I am talking normal people cars in the 30k range. Model Y will eventually fill this gap, but the other automakers are dumb for not jumping on crossover EVs right away. Just more sign that they don't really want to make or sell EVs and they are being forced into it screaming.
