GM has just shut down its equivalent of BMW M and Mercedes-Benz AMG, in efforts to conserve money and stay afloat. GM’s High Performance Vehicle Operations are responsible for cars such as the Cadillac CTS-V and the SS-badged Chevrolets. All engineers in the HPVO division will be moved to other divisions and will work on regular GM cars such as Cadillacs, Buicks, Chevys and Pontiacs. GM’s spokesman Vince Muniga says the HPVO division might be brought back to life in the future when GM is in better financial health, but right now in line with its pledge to the U.S. Treasury Department to deliver more fuel efficient cars in the future, there is no room for low-volume niche high-performance products.
