The American manufacturer is starting a serious shift towards electric cars.
The American group, which has just separated from Opel and Vauxhall, its European branches, seems to be moving towards new energies. General Motors is expected to present 20 new cars in full electric power within 5 years.
While the new car show season is getting closer, there is a rumor that a range of the Chevrolet Bolt EV will be able to develop within the American group’s brands. Thus, Buick could present an electric compact, but GM ensures that the future will be electrified.
For example, GM will offer two new electric cars “taking the lessons learned from the Chevrolet Bolt” within 18 months, and 20 new vehicles will be created by 2023. A plan that goes in the direction of many will electrify their vehicles in the next few years, like Jaguar, Honda, BMW or Volvo. GM however specifies that its cars will be 100% electric, not hybridizations.
“GM believes in an all-electric future,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors’ Vice President of Product Development, Procurement and Supply Chain. “While this future does not happen overnight, GM is committed to promoting the use of electric vehicles through uncompromised solutions that meet our customers’ needs.”
An electrical turn that rhymes with a GM offensive on the electric market. Let us bet that some of these models are reserved only for the Chinese market.
