GM Planning At Least 20 Electric Vehicles By 2023

Today General Motors outlined some of its plan to electrify its fleet. The plan builds upon the company’s vision of having zero emission, zero crashes and zero traffic congestion, a plan outlined by GM CEO Mary Barra.

The plan revealed today calls for General Motors to launch at least 20 all-electric vehicles by 2023. The first two of the series will rollout in the next 18 months. Although the company is not offering any details on the two new EV’s, they are saying both are based on the company’s learnings from the Chevrolet Bolt EV.

“General Motors believes in an all-electric future,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors executive vice president of Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Although that future won’t happen overnight, GM is committed to driving increased usage and acceptance of electric vehicles through no-compromise solutions that meet our customers’ needs.”

Despite the details of the company’s electrification plan, GM has also reiterated its commitment that hydrogen fuel cell vehicles will be part of a zero emissions future. The company is rolling out SURUS — the Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure — a fuel cell powered, four-wheel steer concept vehicle on a heavy-duty truck frame that’s driven by two electric motors. With its capability and flexible architecture, SURUS could be used as a delivery vehicle, truck or even an ambulance — all emissions free.

Today’s announcement by GM echoes similar announcements from other automakers planning to transition their portfolios to be electrified. The announcements are driven by nation states announcing plans to ultimately ban vehicles powered by internal combustion engines.
