GM looks to local Chinese automotive research center to help get the Chevy Volt established in China

General Motors China announced today that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with an important automotive technology organization recognized by the Chinese government. The China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC) will manage GM’s fleet of demonstration Volts and will assist GM China in meeting certain objectives. These will include gaining the support of key decision makers crafting vehicle electrification policy in China. CATARC will also set up demonstrations of the vehicles and hold seminars to try to determine how the Volt and other electric vehicles can address the needs of the Chinese consumer. GM China’s executive director of Electrification Strategy, Ray Bierzynski, summed up the partnership saying “It is important for us to offer those in key positions to affect policy an opportunity to experience firsthand our variety of electrification solutions for reducing the automotive industry’s dependence on petroleum.”
