To Avoid Obsolescence, GM Keeps an Eye on Tesla

General Motors CEO Dan Akerson has his eye on Tesla, and has assigned a small team to study the electric car maker–and its potential thr to GM.

“History is littered with big companies that ignored innovation that was coming their way because you didn’t know where you could be disrupted,” GM vice chairman Steve Girsky told Bloomberg.

In a battle of electric cars, the Tesla Model S outsold the Chevy Volt in the first quarter. Akerson sees the potential of Tesla, which recently announced it would triple the size of its Supercharger network, to “impact our organization,” Girsky said. “It may not be in his lifetime here, but it will be in somebody’s lifetime. And we need to be prepared.
