GM working on next generation EN-V

The next-generation EN-V concept vehicle proved to be a hit at last year’s Shanghai World Expo, and now, General Motors is working on this personal mobility design.

The EN-V, short for Electric Networked-Vehicle, represents the company’s vision to satisfy the increasing demand for secure, connected, zero-emissions personal transportation and could take part in pilot demonstration programs in cities worldwide to determine its real-world practicality.

Future EN-V concepts will also sport a Chevrolet badge, said GM.

“For 100 years, the Chevrolet brand has been focused on making advanced technology that improves customers’ lives (and is) accessible and affordable, and the Chevrolet EN-V will continue that tradition. By 2030, more than 60 per cent of the world’s eight billion people will live in urban areas. The Chevrolet EN-V represents a possible solution for global customers living in markets where alternative transportation solutions are needed.”

-- Chris Perry, vice president of global Chevrolet marketing and strategy.

The EN-V is a two-seater electric urban mobility concept designed to tackle environmental issues and help lessen traffic congestion, parking, energy consumption and safety concenrs. The next-generation concept will come with new features including storage space, climate control as well as all-weather and road condition operation, while battery electric propulsion, autonomous driving capabilities and connectivity will be retained.

Seems like this is something we could really look forward to...
