General Motors (GM) will significantly expand its range of electric vehicles and will spend significantly more money on them than previously planned.
By the end of 2025, 40 percent of the model range in the USA is to consist of battery electric cars, announced Group CEO Mary Barra on Thursday (19-2025).
Over the next five years, General Motors will launch 30 new battery-powered cars.
By then GM will offer 30 all-electric models worldwide.
To this end, investment in battery-powered and self-propelled vehicles is to be increased by a good third to 27 billion dollars (almost 23 billion euros).
“Climate change is real, and we want to be part of the solution,” Barra explained.
So far, GM has had a rather difficult time with the topic of electromobility.
Recently, there were also problems with the Chevrolet Bolt EV, which required a recall due to the risk of battery fires.
