General Motors will release 20 new electric vehiclesJuly 20, 2020
The automaker has promised 20 new electric vehicles by 2023, including Buick, Cadillac, Chevy, and GMC Hummer models.
The Chevrolet Bolt electric car will soon have a company. In its 2019 Sustainability Report, General Motors shared information on 12 new EVs, including cars that have already been announced (GMC Hummer and Cadillac Lyriq) and some that have no names or parts but are on the way to GM’s entry into the market. works.
While some of these vehicles are in the near term for the United States, others may bypass the United States altogether and head to other markets such as China. Either way, this is a very ambitious plan, which GM says was made possible by the modular EV platform and the Ultium battery system.
The first – and the one we know the most about – is the Cadillac Lyriq SUV. The first electric vehicle from the luxury brand GM is expected to go on sale in mid-2021. While the interior of the car is electric, the vehicle itself retains the traditional gas-powered SUV styling that Cadillac fans appreciate.
For those looking for something more (like a three-row car), the luxury brand offers a “global-sized” SUV with an emphasis on interior space. It will be a full-size SUV with Escalade DNA targeting markets outside of the US, according to GM. For those who value compact dimensions, Cadillac will offer an XT4-sized crossover, also targeting the global market.
Among the truly luxurious, Cadillac has a hand-assembled four-seat flagship Celestiq. Only 1 – 2 cars with a six-figure dollar price tag will be built per day. The hatchback will receive 23-inch wheels and one screen for the entire instrument panel.
An announcement made by GMC Hummer in 2020 proved that the former symbol of “oil wealth” will soon be equipped with an electric motor. It is expected to go on sale in late 2021 as a 2022 model. The Hummer EV SUT boasts an impressive 1,000 hp. and 15,500 Nm of torque. A large car is likely to receive a storage battery that stores 200.0 kWh of electricity. It will be joined by the Hummer EV SUV, which we suspect will have the same specs as the truck and will be stylistically identical to it, but with a smaller wheelbase.
Chevrolet already has the Bolt EV, which gives it an edge over other GM brands in the United States. The Bolt will receive a facelift and a new interior. It is not known whether it will receive an additional power reserve, but one car is clearly not enough for the brand. For the US market, a midsize SUV is slated to go on sale by 2025 and will be the size of a Chevrolet Equinox.
With that in mind, the Bolt gets an EUV variant with a Chevrolet Blazer-inspired SUV styling. Its wheelbase will be 7.6cm longer than the regular Bolt hatchback and will be the first non-Cadillac to receive Super Cruise’s hands-free driver assistance. The newcomer will launch in the summer of 2021.
Chevrolet will also get its own electric pickup, which should compete directly with the electric Ford F-150. The model is expected to enter production by 2025 and will be a more utilitarian vehicle than the Hummer, which is aimed at consumers with a special lifestyle.
Finally, Buick, a GM brand that has made great strides in the Chinese market, where EV adoption is superior to America’s. The brand will unveil two new electric vehicles, GM said. The first will be an electric SUV, which will offer “more traditional crossover proportions” with a slightly more stylish Buick badge.
General Motors also mentioned the Cruise Origin autonomous vehicle, but it can’t be bought or tested yet. The exact delivery date has not yet been announced, so it is premature to think too much about its technical characteristics and draw any conclusions.
