Since its founding in 1908, General Motors has been on the cutting edge of automotive innovation.
Now, more than 100 years later, America’s largest carmaker is leading the charge in developing electric vehicles. The automaker recently announced plans to introduce 30 new EVs by 2025.
At the Barclays Global Automotive Conference, GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra outlined the company’s EV ambitions and why it’s uniquely positioned to lead the rest of the automotive world into an emission-free future.
“We are transitioning to an all-electric portfolio from a position of strength and we’re focused on growth,” she explained. “We can accelerate our EV plans because we are rapidly building a competitive advantage in batteries, software, vehicle integration, manufacturing, and customer experience.”
At least two-thirds of GM’s upcoming EVs will be available in the North American market. Currently, there are already at least 10 models on the automaker’s schedule. Four of those will bear the iconic Chevrolet badge, and one of those Chevy models will be an all-electric pickup truck.
At the moment, Chevy currently only offers one electric vehicle: the Bolt EV. The compact car boasts an EPA-estimated driving range of 259 miles on a full charge and can move from 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds.*
