GM's Chevy Volt: set to ship under Vauxhall flag?

Moles from General Motors - Vauxhall's owner - suggest Business Secretary Lord Mandelson gave the project his broad blessing earlier this week.

GM sources alleged that Mandelson was keen to secure the deal for the UK and has agreed “outline government support”.
