General Motors creates a Tesla task force, will attempt to learn from the upstart automaker

There have been reports earlier that indicated that General Motors is working on a new electric vehicle with a Tesla Model S-like range of 200 miles (322 km) and now new details are starting to emerge about the company’s Tesla task force.

In an interview with Reuters, General Motors Vice Chairman Steve Girsky revealed that the company has already created a new task force to study Telsa and the Model S. The diverse group which includes various verticals like product planning, engineering, manufacturing and sales personal will attempt to learn everything they can about Tesla so they can improve their own future products. As Girsky explained, Tesla is in the process of revolutionizing the business model and the real challenge is not just how to put an EV together but how to go to market with something like this.

In fact the company is reportedly working on a handful of new hybrids and EVs. Besides the 200 mile (322 km) Chevrolet EV, which is expected to come in the price range of $30,000 and $35,000, the company is also reportedly developing fuel-efficient flagships which could be badged as Cadillacs and cost more than $ 100,000.
