Tony Posawatz, vehicle line director for the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid, will be the keynote speaker at the Automotive News Green Car Conference on June 14 in Novi, Mich.
The Volt's powertrain broke new ground in auto engineering and is giving a high-tech shine to Chevrolet's image.
Panel discussions at the conference will explore:
-- The case for electrics
-- How automakers are rethinking fundamental technology in cars
-- The role of China in green technology
-- Lessons the industry is learning from consumers about electrics and hybrids
On June 13, the evening before the conference, another Automotive News event, Electrifying 100, will recognize executives, engineers and thinkers who are driving vehicle electrification. The tribute takes place in Dearborn, Mich.
