GM Confirms Two New EVs Coming Within 18 Months

General Motors has confirmed plans to launch two new electric vehicles within the next 18 months.

The company declined to say which brand or brands will receive the vehicles but stated the two new models will be “based off learnings from the Chevrolet Bolt EV.” The models are slated to become the first of at least 20 new electric vehicles that will be launched by 2023.

In a statement, GM executive vice president of product development Mark Reuss said “General Motors believes in an all-electric future.” The executive went on to say “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.”

GM was coy on specifics but previous reports have suggested the company is developing a Bolt-based crossover for Buick. The model will reportedly resemble a futuristic Encore and be equipped with aggressive LED headlights and a floating roof. The crossover’s powertrain is expected to carryover from the Bolt but the model will reportedly be slower and more expensive than the car it is based on.

Besides announcing the two new electric vehicles, GM introduced SURUS which standards for Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure. The company says it is a concept which rides on a heavy-duty truck frame and features a fuel-cell powertrain, four-wheel steering, and two electric motors. While it’s technically a concept, the truck’s platform could be used to underpin ambulances, trucks, and delivery vehicles.

    Hopefully they look more exciting than the bolt, so they will sell….

    GM is so behind the ball that I dont see how the company has any longevity. Outside of a few cool products (which are also highly compromised in their own way), they can beat the Germans or Japanese in any segment outside of the only one they don’t really play in, trucks. Can’t their stockholders somehow fire all the old fart, bureaucratic, do nothing, fat paycheck collecting GM executives and install some younger visionaries with pay tied to performance and an eye to the future?

    Slower and more expensive? A slower bolt with fancy lights and a floating roof? ugh, its the ELR all over again only this one won’t even have the advantage of at least being pretty!

      They already do. Its the CTS-V. If you want a RWD V8 from GM bad enough, you’ll get it. If you still want it badged as an Impala, then you don’t want a RWD V8 from GM bad enough.
