Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas says that GM will soon follow this trend. Governmental laws regarding new fuel economy standards will mean that the big three will fight hard for relaxed federal rules to protect their highly profitable and popular truck and SUV businesses. But the need to lower emissions is unavoidable so the disbanding of less profitable segments and their increased focus on electric vehicles may place them in a better negotiating position in the months to come. GM currently has Cadillac, Buick
and Chevrolet sedans in its line-up so a trimming down of the existing sedans may mean the end of cars like the Buick
LaCrosse as well as the Chevrolet Malibu.
