"GM's Long, Hard, Bumpy Road to the Chevrolet Volt"

"WARREN, Mich. -- It is tempting to write that, as far as the electric car is concerned, GM has been standing in the wrong place on the automotive court for a long time while other companies, particularly Toyota Motor Corp., scored all the points. But that is not entirely true. The GM experience in making electric-drive vehicles goes back at least 50 years, and the fruit of all that effort is finally beginning to emerge."
