is in the early planning stages for a mid-size EV sedan with a 200-mile range, but the car is still far from getting a green light. Doug Parks, GM’s global product development chief, said that the car would cost around $30,000, but GM is still deciding if there are enough prospective buyers to warrant the car.

The car would use GM’s second-generation of battery technology, which would allow it to more than double the range of the Chevrolet Spark EVSpark EVChevrolet Spark EVUnited States of America, 2013 > present4 photos
but at roughly the same price.

“The real trick will be who can do a 200-mile car for more of the price range [$30,000] I’m talking about. We’re all in races to do that.”

Parks did not say what the new vehicle would mean for the Chevrolet VoltVoltChevrolet VoltUnited States of America, 2011 > present3 photos
, which provides a 379-mile range for $34,185. However, it is a series hybrid that uses an internal combustion engine as a generator to keep its battery pack charged.

While electrified vehicles are growing in popular in the US, hybrids and EVs only represent 4% of US auto market share. GM already offers a pure EV in the Spark and a plug-in in the Volt, plus multiple other hybrids in its lineup. The market will have to be ready before it adds any more electrified vehicles to its lineup.
