General Motors is now keen on making better technologies for electric vehicles and they have already started to make some innovative products. GM has recently launched the first real-world pilot of smart grid solutions for electric vehicles. The Company announced the launch of their new real world smart grid pilot at the Plug-In 2011 Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. To make this project a success, GM will provide leased Chevrolet Volt plug in hybrid sedans to their regional employees where they will drive their vehicles everyday and test the pilot. Nick Pudar, OnStar Vice President of Planning and Business Development said that although there are many companies that talk about smart grid technology but they are already ahead in research and development of such programs in the real world.
