General Motors Co said Thursday that it was setting a goal to sell all its new cars, SUVs and light pick-up trucks with zero tailpipe emissions by 2035, and become completely carbon neutral by 2040, a dramatic shift by the largest United States automaker away from gasoline and diesel engines. Al Jazeera reports that GM also said it will source 100 percent renewable energy to power its US sites by 2030 and global sites by 2035, five years ahead of a prior goal, and that more than half of it’s capital spending and product development team will be devoted to electric and electric-autonomous vehicle programmes.
