Abstract:
Over the past few years, Canadians have become increasingly more aware of the
potential impacts on the environment of our day to day activities. Media
coverage on the Kyoto protocol has focused attention on the need to
progressively invest and apply technology to participate in environmentally
conscious solutions.

General Motors is a leader in addressing the future environmentally sustainable
operation of Motor vehicles. Single technologies are not being relied upon, but
rather, multiple plans are in place with huge investment in research and
development to bring these innovations to market. Advancements that include but
also extend beyond conventional internal combustion engines (ICE).

This discussion will share with you solutions that General Motors has developed
to address these issues, such as accommodating different fuel types (Ethanol,
Bio-diesel), improving the ICE (Active Fuel management), the further growth of
Hybrid technologies (low, mid and higher cost solutions), electric range
extended vehicles and hydrogen powered vehicles.
