  4. Shanghai in 2030 -- Transportation of the future

    I was able to get into the SAIC-GM Pavilion in the Shanghai Expo last night without waiting in the line for too long -- only took me 15 minutes. During the day it is usually a 2- to 3-hour wait. The pavilion was jointly built by Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation and General Motors. The theme is Shanghai's transportation in 2030. By that time, all the cars run on intelligent transportation system, with wheels, although plenty of flying cars abound. You get to watch a 20-minute movie in rocking ...

  5. Expo 2010 Shanghai Tidbits

    Shanghai SAIC group is a major sponsor of the Expo 2010. I spotted a couple of their electric cars outside the State Grid Pavilion. Hinting the charge stations will be part of the electric grid in the near future? The cars were British Rover designs. The company was bought by SAIC a few years ago. The engine specs are a bit underwelming, though.
