Submission + - GM to unveil new electric car prototype

brasscandlestick writes: "General Motors Corp., vilified by environmentalists for killing the electric car, is hoping to bring one back. But the new electric won't be an emissions-free vehicle, unlike the initial GM electric, the EV1. The new car, to be unveiled as a prototype early next year, would use an onboard internal-combustion engine as a generator to produce electricity to extend the range of the vehicle's rechargeable batteries."
