Future GM Electric Cars, Vehicles, EVs

General Motors is planning to introduce various electric vehicles over the next several years as part of a push towards an emissions-free future.

Following is speculative and unconfirmed information about the future GM electric cars. This page is a continuous work-in-progress and will be updated on a regular basis as we await official details from General Motors and its brands.

If you notice any inaccuracies about the information provided, or have edits to suggest, please let us know here.

On October 2nd, 2017, GM made the following announcement:

  • In next 18 months, it will introduce two new all-electric vehicles based on learnings from the Chevrolet Bolt EV, and that
  • By 2023, the automaker will introduce at least 20 new all-electric vehicles

As speculated by GM Authority, one of these could be a sporty two-door coupe while the other a Buick crossover, likely similar to the Buick Enspire Concept. However, it is likely that the former vehicle will also be a crossover utility vehicle (CUV).

We will update this page with more information about future GM electric cars and EVs.

Vision

The plan to introduce at least 20 new all-electric vehicles by the year 2023 is part of GM’s vision “of a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion”, as announced by GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra.

The automaker believes that getting to zero emissions in the future will require more than battery electric technology. Instead, the automaker envisions a two-pronged approach to electrification based on unique requirements, consisting of:

  1. Battery electric, and
  2. Hydrogen fuel cell electric

On October 6th, 2017, General Motors announced the appointment of Pam Fletcher to the newly-created position of Director Global Electric Vehicle Vehicle Programs responsible for the development of future GM electric cars, trucks, and SUVs.
