GM does not have a stellar record building small cars. The Chevrolets Vega and Chevette come to mind, and neither covered the company in glory. But this will be a smaller, smarter post-apocalyptic GM. It won’t dominate the known world, and it won’t have a quarter of the American market anymore. But if it realizes that “small is beautiful,” it just might survive.
