General Motors is bringing out the Volt in just a couple months. However, GM is not putting all of its eggs into range-extended electric vehicle (REEV) technology. GM is also moving forward on battery electric vehicle (BEV) technology, and is planning a series of test fleets of entirely battery powered vehicles across the globe. BEVs, such as the Tesla Roadster or the Nissan Leaf, do not have any capacity to recharge the vehicle while driving, and are limited in their driving range.
The Chinese Chevrolet Sail (photo) is one BEV that already exists as a prototype. Reportedly, Chevrolet will be working with several different cars and will be testing them in various locations across the globe. However, the US is not scheduled to be part of any of these tests.
