January 11, 2012
GM is exploring several solutions for tomorrow’s drivers. Among the most promising is a new vehicle called EN-V short for Electric Networked-Vehicle, maintains the core principle of personal mobility – freedom.EN-V is a two-seat electric vehicle that was designed to alleviate concerns surrounding traffic congestion, parking availability, air quality and affordability for tomorrow’s cities.EN-V is propelled by electric motors in each of its two driving-mode wheels.

Power for the motors is provided by lithium-ion batteries that produce zero emissions. By combining the Global Positioning System (GPS) with vehicle-to-vehicle communications and distance-sensing technologies, the EN-V concept can be driven both manually and autonomously. Its autonomous operating capability offers the promise of reducing traffic congestion by allowing EN-V to automatically select the fastest route based on real-time traffic information.
