I think that shows that GM is not as competitive in the EV marketplace as it was several years ago. It will be interesting to see what they do if/when they chose to compete. Hopefully they will introduce more compelling products at competitive prices. However they are now at a disadvantage in the US, having gone through their 200,000 vehicle quota for max tax credits. Regardless of that, they will need better products to compete in domestic or foreign markets given the superior small CUV offerings of Hyundai and Kia. It seems that GM also has a considerable handicap due to inadequate investments in battery technology at this time, and I think they squandered the early lead with the Volt (which I won) and Bolt.
