General Motors has already confirmed plans to introduce 20 electric vehicles globally by 2023, but now GM has released more details about the EVs we can expect to see in the United States.
GM has confirmed 12 new EVs in its 10th annual sustainability report, which will be introduced across all of its brands: Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC.
Buick is getting two new electric SUVs. One will be a traditional SUV that will “maximize interior space and cargo.” The second Buick electric SUV will place more emphasis on style.
Cadillac has already confirmed one electric SUV, the Lyriq, which will see debut on August 6 as a concept. Cadillac is going to eventually get five new EVs, which includes the Lyriq and Celestiq flagship sedan. The other three new Cadillac electric vehicles will be three electric SUVs. The first will be a small entry-level electric SUV, similar in size to the Cadillac XT4. The second will be a three-row SUV and lastly a full-size electric SUV is planned that will be inspired by the Escalade.
Chevrolet already offers the Bolt EV and next year it will introduce a larger version called the Bolt EUV, which will arrive as a 2022 model. The Bolt Electric Utility Vehicle is expected to look very close to China’s Buick Velite 7. It will also be the first vehicle outside of Cadillac to get GM’s Super Cruise system. A refreshed Bolt is also coming for 2022.
Chevrolet is also getting an electric SUV and a full-size electric pickup truck with a driving range over 400 miles.
Lastly GMC already has teased its new Hummer EV pickup truck, which is going to go into production in the fall of 2021. After it arrives, a Hummer EV SUV is going to be introduced.
All of these new EVs, with the exception of the Bolt EV and EUV, will be based on GM’s new BEV3 platform with its Ultium battery technology. The new platform will give the EVs a driving range over 400 miles.
