G.M. makes big bucks with small, efficient cars
The New York Times reports that General Motors, that behemoth of gas-guzzling, is the biggest car seller in China thanks in large part to "$5,000 minivans that get 43 miles to the gallon in city driving."
Why G.M. thinks these same cars wouldn't sell in the U.S. is unfathomable to me, but it is fitting that the man behind this huge success for the automaker (which, incidentally, is struggling in the U.S.), "resigned" (he insists he wasn't fired) from the company in March of this year.
No good deed goes unpunished, it seems, and especially something as dastardly as creating an affordable, fuel-efficient vehicle for a company that prefers to trade on its rough, rugged, "manly," wasteful image instead.
