GM will produce more fuel efficient models by 2017

There are a lot of carmakers that are trying to achieve the figures mentioned in different regulations in terms of fuel consumption. All need to reach 54.5 mpg US by 2025 and so the engineers are doing their best. American company General Motors is actually embracing the idea of doing it and here is how we know. GM was the first carmaker to sign the Climate Declaration pledge. This actually means that they approve the motto: preventing climate change is good business. To underline this strategy, the carmaker promises to develop twice as many models capable of generating a bit over 40 mpg on the highway in their range by 2017. How do they intend to do this? Well, as it turns out the engineers try to reduce the emissions produced by their vehicles by 15 % and do it before the 2016 deadline. Now we will have to wait and see how it goes, but we do have to appreciate the sentiment. General Motors actually received a lot of help from solar panels. Thanks to these practical elements, the carmaker managed to reduce its world-wide energy usage by 7 % since 2010. GM has 105 facilities that recycle or reuse around 90 % of the waste at its manufacturing facilities, or at least this is what an official declared for the The Detroit Free Press. There is also the possibility the giant company will forget about going all-green as it might not be so profitable. It will not be the first project put on hold as they have done this in the past. Chances are really high they will add some more years to the deadline. It is actually to soon to tell what will happen so we will only need to wait for more details on future plans of the carmaker.
