Green by Design
GM offers for sale in Canada more vehicles that achieve an impressive 7L/100km (40 miles per imperial gallon) or better highway fuel economy than any other manufacturer.
We're developing more ways to have a positive impact on the global environment, without changing your drive. From our long line of fuel efficient vehicles to the development of the Chevrolet Volt - first introduced in 2011 and improved with the Generation II in 2016 - the first extended range electric vehicle of its class that alleviates "range anxiety", we're definitely on our way to changing the rules of the road. Maintaining its lead in this area is the Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid and the All-New Chevrolet Bolt EV - the first all-electric car with a range of 383 kms at a price that makes it affordable.
Since the 1970's GM has reduced smog forming emissions by over 99%. In fact, you may be surprised to hear that painting a room with a 4-litre can of water-based latex paint creates more smog forming emissions than driving a GM SUV from Toronto to Vancouver and back again.
Right here in Canada, GM is engineering and manufacturing advanced environmental technologies ranging from Active Fuel ManagementTM and hybrid systems to electric vehicles and fuel cell vehicles - more than any other auto company. In fact, GM's efficient "stop/start" technology both improves fuel economy and reduces carbon emissions, and will be standard on most GM vehicles by 2020.
GM's new Automotive Software Development Centre that recently opened in Markham, Ontario, is currently developing new engineering work that focuses on such new and advanced technologies as autonomous vehicle software, active safety technology and infotainment and connected mobility systems.
