  Television Star Ed Begley, Jr., to Receive GM's Annual 'Friend Of The
                            Environment' Award
  WHO:       General Motors - Second-Generation EV1 Electric Vehicle
  WHAT:      GM is officially launching its new, extended-range EV1 electric
             vehicle at what is expected to be the largest gathering ever of
             electric vehicles and electric vehicle owners.  GM will also
             display its next generation of environmentally responsible
             vehicles and showcase new, advanced technologies that could
             well find their way into cars of the 21st century, including:
             --  The most aerodynamic and energy-efficient car in the world,
             the second-generation EV1 has new, advanced batteries that
             enable the car to travel nearly twice as far as the first EV1.
             --  The futuristic Chevrolet Triax hybrid concept vehicle,
             which was recently introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show, offers
             the unique ability for its driver to select one of three
             propulsion options: an all-electric version; a gas-electric
             hybrid version; or an ultra-low emissions gasoline-powered
             --  GM's newest advanced-technology concept vehicle, the
             Precept, will be displayed as a clay model.  A result of GM's
             participation in the Partnership for a New Generation Vehicle
             (PNGV), the original concept version Precept -- in wind tunnel
             tests performed in Detroit -- recently surpassed the EV1 as the
             most aerodynamic car in the world.
