    GM Chair and CEO Mary Barra says quote “General Motors is embracing our opportunity and our responsibility to create a better world for today and for generations to come." Barra continues by saying "our global teams are working with great speed and integrity to make our vision of a zero-emissions, all electric future a reality that is inclusive and accessible to all."
