General Motors has pledged to grow the electric-vehicles segment worldwide. It plans to sell at least 20 all-electric cars by 2023.
In fact, the American manufacturer will introduce two news EVs within the next 18 months. As per one of the top honchos of the company, the new cars that will be introduced will be based on learnings from the Chevrolet Bolt, a mass market electric vehicle that is being sold since the last few years. However, it is not necessary that GM will use the Bolt’s design or the architecture.
“Whatever we do, from an electrification stand point, the next version will be better than the version we have on the road. That vision involves everything that we’ve learned from the Bolt, but the architecture piece of this continues to evolve," said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, global product development, GM.
The 20 upcoming EVs will be a mix of sedans, SUVs and crossovers. These cars will be plug-in electric vehicles or hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles. Unfortunately, none of these cars will make it to India as the company has ceased its domestic operations.
