GM's E- Motor

 Two years ago, according to Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley, the site of General Motor's new electric motor production facility north of Baltimore was just an open, grassy field. On this day, as he stood at the podium, in front of him was one of the first of a new generation e-motor that will propel the Chevrolet Spark. The facility is one of GM's jewels in terms of environmental impact. It is a no-land fill facility, meaning it produces no waste that ends up in land-fills. Any waste that is produced is recycled, a process that became obvious as we toured the production floor and saw how the 100kW (130 hp) electric motor is built.
