General Motors Co.’s Chevrolet brand is providing 12 plug-in hybrid Chevrolet Volts to the nonprofit MBAs Across America program, which is traveling the country to help small businesses.
The automaker held a celebratory event Friday at its Renaissance Center headquarters. GM CEO Mary Barra and Detroit Deputy Mayor Ike McKinnon welcomed the students who spent the week in Detroit working with seven local businesses.
Barra, who holds a MBA from Stanford, received an email from the chief operating officer of the program in February asking for some assistance. Barra, who gets plenty of emails, said she found it “intriguing.”
