What electric vehicles can we expect from GM in the future?
Future GM EV Lineup
General Motors has been quite vocal about its dedication to an all-electric vehicular future. Specifically, the automaker aims to have 20 new electric vehicles in its lineup by 2023. This has got us quite eager to see what all the new machines will look like.
A few of the upcoming EVs have already been announced and detailed to varying degrees. What specific electric models has General Motors announced?
Of the 20 new electric vehicles slated to inhabit the GM lineup by 2023, we currently have some information on the Chevy Bolt EUV, the Cadillac LYRIQ luxury SUV, the GMC HUMMER EV, and the Cruise Origin. Join us as we take a look at what we know about the upcoming GM EVs.
Chevy Bolt EUV
The Chevy Bolt EUV is anticipated to launch in Summer 2021. It will be the first vehicle outside the Cadillac brand to feature Super Cruise, the first true hands-free automotive driving tech for the highway. By 2023, 22 vehicles will have this feature, including ten that are slated to have it by next year.
The Cruise origin is the first production vehicle from an exciting GM, Cruise and Honda partnership. A self-driving EV with a modular design, this machine has been developed for a million miles of 24-hour service. Basically, it’s a self-driving electric shared vehicle. It uses the third-generation EV platform and Ultium batteries.
GM Electric Model Plans
The electric models will fall across the full Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC and Buick lineups. The Chevy Bolt EV has already been cruising streets for a few years now, while the Cadillac LYRIQ and much anticipated GMC HUMMER EV are well on their way. A new version of the Bolt will be hitting the planet next year.
GM R&D has filed more than 3,000 global patents related to electrification. Production for many of these new electric models is expected to begin in Fall 2021 at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant. This will be the first GM assembly plant dedicated entirely to EV production.
