Encouraged and inspired by the success of its Chevrolet Bolt EV, American automotive giant General Motors has just announced it will launch two new electric models in the next year, and that it intends to produce at least 20 more new electric vehicles by 2023.
The goal folds into the company’s larger objective of working towards a world without accidents, emissions or congestion.
“General Motors believes in an all-electric future,” declared Mark Reuss, GM’s executive vice president of Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Although that future won't happen overnight, GM is committed to driving increased usage and acceptance of electric vehicles through no-compromise solutions that meet our customers' needs.”
The company’s plan involves producing vehicles powered not only by batteries but also by fuel cells (hydrogen). Already on the horizon, a new GM prototype vehicle, the SURUS (Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure) could eventually serve as an all-electric delivery truck or ambulance.
