GM and Discovery Channel teaming up on documentary
Detroit, Michigan – General Motors and Discovery Channel are collaborating on a new four-part documentary that will examine the future of automotive engineering, from design and alternative fuel sources to advanced materials and in-vehicle electronics. The series is set to debut in 2007.
The documentary will include following eight young designers from the GM Design internship program as they develop eight vehicles, each based on GM’s hydrogen fuel cell technology, from initial sketches through digital models to finished design properties. Along the way, viewers will get a rare look at the company’s design studios, confidential proving grounds, aero labs and engineering centres.
