    GM Leads in Energy Reduction Challenge

    Last updated 5 years ago

    General Motors now has 54 facilities meeting the voluntary energy reduction challenge set by the EPA. General Motors has cut energy costs more than any other company nationwide and saved close to $90,000,000! 

    To be a part of the challenge for industry, the EPA required facilities to reduce energy intensity by 10% within 5 years. GM has cut energy intensity by 26% in just 3 years! This reduction resulted in 1,256,000 tons of C02 is equal to the amount of electricity needed to power more than 142,069 homes, or a city the size of New Orleans for an entire year. 

    New to the list are 22 GM international Operations sites and two facilities in North America. These facilities join the 30 GM plants that are already that met the challenge last year. This was achieved by benchmarking energy use, upgrading to energy-efficient lighting, improving control of ventilation systems and automating the shut-down process of equipment that previously was shut down manually as well as process energy reductions. This is just part of GMs ongoing energy efficiency program dedicated to reducing GMs carbon footprint. 

    In 2012, the EPA named GM one of its Energy Star Partners of the Year for energy management.

    Congratulations, General Motors! 

    The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is going to be getting even better for the 2014 Edition!

    Last updated 5 years ago

    The all new, redesigned Chevrolet Malibu just got even better! The 2013 Malibu made the car quieter, more efficient and even more modern. So how could they possibly improve the car again? Nobody really knows yet, so we can only speculate but GM CEO Daniel Akerson mentioned that the Malibu will feature yet another face lift! It is also expected that GM will put the new 1.6L turbo Ecotec engine into the new Malibu, capable of generating 200 horsepower with greater efficiency!  

    We'll give you all the information we have as it becomes available. If you'd like to find out the all new, redesigned Chevrolet Malibu give us a call at 330-SWEENEY or email us at 

    We don't have any awesome photos to show of you the 2014 Malibu, as it hasn't been unveiled yet, but take a look at these photos of the 2013!

    Giving back to this who are willing to give it all

    Last updated 5 years ago

    In the wake of the 113th Army-Navy Game, Chevrolet and students from Michigan Technological University revealed a new hand cycle designed to make it easier for veterans to compete in racing events. 

    Stronger, as well as more comfortable, durable and portable than current commercially available cycles, the cycle was designed by Michigan Tech mechanical engineering students as part of a senior projected named Huskies Helping Heroes.

    In addition to this partnership, GM Chairman and CEO Daniel Akerson announced that GM will build 10 prototypes for use next year by the Achilles Freedom Team of wounded veterans in marathons across the US. 

     How else is GM involved with Veterans? Over 5,000 veterans are employed by General Motors across the United States. Chevrolet assists Cell Phones for Soldiers, Achilles Freedom Team, the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund and a variety of grassroots and employment initiatives including Hiring our Heroes. GM is committed to giving back to veterans everywhere to thank them for their service and it's for this reason that General Motors offers the most generous military discount of any other major car brand. Discounts are offered on most Chevrolet, Buick and GMC vehicles for active duty, reserves and veterans of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and National Guards branches.

    To find out more about how you can put your discount to work for you, give us a call at 330-SWEENEY or email us at
