GM Announces Plans to Release 20 New Electric Cars by 2023
GM cemented its commitment to compete in the emerging electric car market with a recent announcement that it will deliver a zero emission product line across all of its vehicle segments. That’s right – soon you’ll be able to choose from an even wider selection of super-efficient electric vehicles at any Fox Lake Chevy dealer.
We’re not sure how long the automaker’s EV roll-out will take but GM says that it is committed to ensuring that the vehicles arrive equipped with the best technology the industry has to offer. “The process is complex,” Mark Reuss, president of General Motors, said in a recent statement. “GM doesn’t see there being one year where we flip a switch and it’s all electric.”
But that doesn’t mean it will be difficult to find Chevy EVs near you. The automaker has announced plans to unveil two new all-electric vehicles within the next eighteen months. By 2023, the brand will have a complete line-up of at least 20 new all-electric cars to choose from. All of the cars will feature GM’s new ground-breaking fuel cell technology.
The automaker has been hard at work on the new SURUS fuel-cell concept platform which was recently debuted at a major industry event. The SURUS is a four-wheel steering concept truck-based vehicle with two electric motors and a versatile design which could be implemented within a range of different vehicles in commercial capacities. In just a few years we might see the SURUS pop up as delivery vehicles, trucks or even ambulances.
GM also says that it will work to increase the efficiency of fuel injection vehicles by focusing on lighter vehicle weight and by boosting the agility of battery packs. With any luck, that hard work will pay off in the form of reduced costs. Skeptics take note: the brand is no stranger to EV innovation–GM has been working on battery technologies since the mid-1960s.
According to Mary Barra, the CEO of General Motors, the automaker’s ultimate goal is to create a world with zero emissions and zero car crashes. Both Barra and Reuss point to the Chevy Bolt as an example of the kind of success they’re striving toward with the entire GM electric lineup. Reuss called the Bolt “a window into how GM will move humanity forward in the future” and pointed to growing customer enthusiasm over the car as a sign that the company is clearly moving in the right direction.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV was named the 2017 Motor Trend Car of the Year thanks to its remarkable efficiency and awe-inspiring capabilities. The Bolt has an EPA estimated range of 238 miles on a single battery charge.
