GM announces Zero Emissions strategy, 20 new EVs by 2023 image

GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra recently announced General Motors wants to deliver a vision of a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion – and they’re giving first details now about the zero emissions part.

Just like any other sensible automaker out there – we’re going to count the ones that haven’t announced the electrification strategy from now on, because they’re fewer – General Motors is also ready to embrace the electric future. “General Motors believes in an all-electric future,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors executive vice president. “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.” First order of business, over the next 18 months we’re going to be graced with two new all-electric vehicles.

No details are being given at this point about the two new fully electric vehicles – though in the teaser image we can clearly see under the tarps there are vastly different models, some small, some big and some looking like crossovers. It’s anyone’s guess which two will be first to show up, but we do know GM has promised “at least 20 new all-electric vehicles that will launch by 2023.” More so, while others are ditching it, GM is still adamant about hydrogen fuel cell electric technology, adding it will use either fuel cell or battery technology depending on “unique requirements.”
