The following actually seems real, though I had to check the date three times to make sure it wasn't April 1. However, it appears that having cut R&D for most new vehicles and concept cars, GM is doubling down on this vehicle for the New York auto show:
No word yet on Federal crash test results, though I guess since the Feds own the company now they can waive whatever requirements they wish.
Postscript: Its probably a pretty cool technology, and I am sure it would be fun to scoot around in. But the company is hemorrhaging billions of dollars of cash a month and someone is still funding this? This can't be made in any of its plants, and can't reasonably be sold in any of its dealerships. GM would have to sell millions of these to have any kind of impact on its financials, and it is highly unlikely there is any such market. I therefore am waiting for someone in the Obama administration to say "this is exactly the type of thing GM should be doing."
