General Motors officially launched its new electric motor in White Marsh Tuesday, a milestone in U.S. manufacturing - and a key part of the company's bet that the electric-vehicle market is poised to grow. With production under way at the Baltimore County "eMotor" plant, GM says, the company is the first automaker to manufacture electric-drive motors domestically. The operation is small for now: About 20 employees make motors for the plug-in electric Chevrolet Spark EV, side by side with 27 robots.

COLLEGE PARK - At first glance, it looks more like something you would expect to see circling the Indianapolis Motor Speedway than a vehicle used to drive the kids to T-ball games. The bright reddish gold Chevrolet Suburban has number 07 painted on both front doors. And, like a racecar, it is covered with decals promoting its corporate sponsors. "Yeah, it's fast," David Holloway said earlier this week. "It will go from 0 to 60 in 7 seconds." That's 40 percent faster than a stock Suburban.

Allen Cady loved to paddle through the marshes of the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge to snap pictures of the birds and animals at sunset. But he often found himself paddling back in the dark -- until he affixed an electric motor to his canoe four years ago.The innovation saved the Annapolis boat restorer time and energy and was so quiet that he still could get close to the wildlife he wanted to photograph.This week, his Electra Ghost Canoes will be among the hundreds of boats on display at the 25th annual U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis.

General Motors Corp. and DaimlerChrysler AG announced yesterday that they will jointly develop hybrid technology to sell starting in 2007, reversing their earlier dismissals of fuel-saving hybrid vehicles as too expensive and not in demand. The announcement joins the world's largest and fifth-largest automakers in a mega-dollar effort to try to catch Toyota, the industry leader in the sale of hybrids. Honda put its third hybrid model on sale last week, the Accord Hybrid sedan. Honda also sells a hybrid Civic sedan and the two-seat Insight.

Middle school pupils who attended Howard County public schools' careers summer camp learned an important lesson: Technology can be fun. The fun was audible in laughter emanating from a kitchen, where pupils learned to bake a cake. And it was visible when students donned white coats and goggles to extract DNA from wheat germ. "This is really good," said Daniel Myers, who was licking a chocolate-covered spoon after getting the cake-baking lesson from Eric Queen, a culinary captain for Longhorn restaurants.

We are northbound on the Jones Falls Expressway, just past the Pepsi sign, riding hard under a dazzling blue sky, when this thought occurs to me: Redemption is a beautiful thing. How does the old song go? I once was lost, but now am found. Was blind, but now I see. Yes, that's it. That's it exactly. Once I worshiped at the altar of the almighty SUV, those gas-guzzling behemoths of the Beltway with their leather captain's chairs and 27 cup holders and interiors roomy enough to fit the passenger list of the Queen Mary.
