Dan Akerson admit it publicly, if not even a week has passed since the traffic safety agency in the U.S. began its formal investigation into the Chevy Volt.
General Motors may have to redesign the batteries that power their electric cars and to prevent fire in case of accident. The CEO of the automaker said in an interview that above all is to ensure the safety of their customers.
GM has sold about 6,100 units of electric vehicles, with which she marked a new stage after emerging from bankruptcy. Akerson insists that “safe” and has stated that there was no incident on the road. The immediate effect of the research design of the batteries is suspending the delivery of the Opel version of the Volt for Europe, named the Ampera. The car is sold in the U.S. for about $ 40,000, slightly less than 21,000 euros.
