Ford has already confirmed that it’s working on an electric version of the F-150, but if you’ve been wondering when General Motors is going to introduce a fully electric truck as well, we have news for you. GM CEO Mary Barra has confirmed that the automaker will introduce a fully electric truck in the fall of 2021.
Barra did not confirm any other details to Reuters about the truck, so we don’t know which brand will get it. “General Motors understands truck buyers and … people who are new coming into the truck market,” Mary Barra stated at a recent investor conference. “It will be a very capable truck, I’m pretty excited about it.”
We do know that the electric pickup will be built at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant. There are also rumors that the plant could also build a new electric Hummer SUV as well as the upcoming Cadillac electric crossover.
