General Motors faces from now on its electrification plan, more committed: two new electric in the next 18 months, and up to 20 models before 2023. For the american company, ‘the future is electric’.
When it has not yet taken off the distribution of the Chevrolet Bolt in the united States and even less of the Opel Ampera-e in Europe the group matrix of these two brands, General Motors, announces a new plan of electric vehicle, in this case, it seems that much more committed than the current.
The manufacturer has confirmed the launch of two new all-electric vehicles in the next 18 months. Both will take advantage of the experience gained from the placing on the market of the Bolt to the end of last year.
A future all-electric
But the plan of General Motors does not end there but that, in the own press release adds that it will launch ‘at least 20 all-electric vehicles before 2023’. Mark Reuss, executive vice president of Product Development of General Motors General Motors believes “in a future fully electric. Although that future will not happen overnight. GM is committed to promote a greater use and acceptance of electric vehicles through solutions without compromise to meet the needs of our customers”.
At the time of this announcement related to electrical-driven by batteries, the company also announced a new platform of vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cell, which proves that, like other manufacturers, General Motors does not want to renounce this technology.
This is the first time that General Motors assumed a commitment with the electrical mobility of such entity, although, as in other cases, remain promises and goals that until they become a reality will not be considered as certain.
do Not forget that the Chevrolet Bolt was announced as ‘the first electric car for the mass market’. The reality is that a car is overly expensive for its size (37 500$) that only have given about 2 000 units in the united States. Sales reduced by some production targets less ambitious and an erratic plan of distribution, as demonstrated in his testimonial arrival to Europe in the form of the Opel Ampera-e.
we Hope that this new plan of General Motor suppose a revival of that spirit power and make reality of those statements by Mark Reuss, that ‘the future is electric’.
The input-General Motors announces two new electric in the next 18 months will first appear in Electric Mobility.
