The Demise of General Motors?

6 08 2008

I found this article on the New York Times and it’s about the downfall that General Motors is facing now. Considering the long tradition and heritage that General Motors has so far, the company is facing quite a serious problem and a major loss throughout the year. It also needs to compete with car manufacturers worldwide. The main problem is that this, to me, is no longer the day and age for gigantic pick-up truck or SUV cars. What we need now is cars that can get from one place to another place but also save gas for us. In the area where I live, I see at least five Smart cars – those cars that really tiny for 2 passengers but I heard that they save on a gas mileage.

Maybe what General Motors needs now is a new Research and Development focus – focusing more on how to save gas mileage but also retain the very brand of General Motors. Just a thought.
