Battled hardened General Motors chief executive Mary Barra pledged on Thursday to move past last year’s recall fiasco, which saw millions of small cars with defective ignition switches recalled.
“It was clearly a tragedy, and it was deeply troubling,” Barra told reporters this week as she unveiled new plans for 2015, according to the New York Times.
Barra says the company aims to expand its sales in the U.S. and China this year and is sharpening its sights on European markets.
“We have many launches this year, and we are going into them to win, not just to compete,” she said.
