After killing the electric car in the 90s, General Motors is now promising a car they touted will revolutionize the auto industry. Can they do it?

Sure. Some reasons.

Battery technology is way better.

People are more concerned about the environment, particularly global warming.

The sales of the Prius have warmed up the market. Some people will want something even better.

My major concern is that GMs target for battery only range is only 40 miles. Over that they use a gas powered generator.

It's really more a plug-in hybrid than an electric. Whether that concept is different enough for market success is a question. The word revolutionize is clearly not warranted.
