The recent electric Chvey Cruze model launched in Seoul forms a part of extended-range plug-in vehicles offered by General Motors. The Cruze EV is equipped with a 31-kWh battery that generates a maximum of 150 kW power, or about 102.5 miles per hour with a 0-60 of about 8.2 seconds. Real-world range has yet to be completed, but the Cruze EV has demonstrated a 100-mile range. Testing is expected to begin by the end of October.

General Motors India is also planning to introduce its electric vehicle range in India but has canceled its partnership with Reva owing to its acquisition by Mahindra and Mahindra. It already has Chevrolet Spark and Chevrolet Volt on cards as probable electric vehicles coming to Indian shores. It has not stated whether it will introduce the e-Cruze in other emerging markets or it will remain confined to the developed markets only.
