GM-SAIC to showcase 'personal mobility' cars

By Xiao Qin

The "personal mobility concept" — clean, sustainably powered small or micro vehicles — will be featured in the joint corporate Expo pavilion of the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp Group (SAIC) and General Motors Corp.

SAIC and its joint venture partner GM have submitted the theme statement for their pavilion that will present cutting-edge technologies and concepts. The emphasis is on flexible personal urban transportation in keeping with the Expo theme "Better City, Better Life."

SAIC-GM will present the sustainable personal mobility concept and a modern transportation system that puts the environment in the forefront and improves the quality of city dwellers' lives.

The personal mobility concept envisions an emerging class of clean-energy vehicle, such as solar-powered cars, that takes single-person transport to a new level. It's a hot trend in the automobile industry.

"GM has participated in a number of global expositions dating back to the 1933 Chicago World's Fair," said Kevin Wale, president and managing director of the GM China Group.

"We look forward to working with SAIC to re-create the magic of those past events and making our corporate pavilion one of the most popular and talked about at World Expo Shanghai 2010."

SAIC Chairman Hu Maoyuan said, "SAIC and GM are proud to be extending our relationship into the important area of corporate social responsibility."
