General Motors will begin testing a fleet of electric-powered Chevrolet Cruze vehicles next month in South Korea. The vehicles were codeveloped with GM Daewoo, LG Chem, and LG Electronics. GM plans to announce electric-vehicle demonstration fleets with additional partners this year.

GM hasn't marketed a pure electric vehicle since the EV1 was dropped in the late 1990s. Later this year, GM plans to begin selling the Chevrolet Volt, a plug-in hybrid that relies on a gasoline engine for extended driving range when battery power is depleted.
