Hi from Just Answer. I'mCustomer and can assist.
If the vehicles are titled, insured and placed in service, they become depreciation eligible for income tax purposes. I suspect sales tax must be paid as well.
When the vehicle is sold, it is a used car, even if GM warranties the vehicle as new. Much of the depreciation will have to be recaptured when sold outside the dealership, in 2017 or after.
