Watch out Tesla.
In the next five years or so, General Motors has pledged to have 20 electric vehicles in its line up. The company will be launching at least 20 new EVs by 2023.
The automaker announced on Monday that it is shifting towards an electric future. The company’s Chairman and CEO Mary Barra announced the news at the company’s design center. She said that new cars are a part of the company’s plan to move forward in an automotive world that includes “zero emissions, zero congestion and zero crashes.”
“GM is committed to a zero-emission future,” explained General Motors’ advanced-technology spokesperson, Kevin Kelly.
“We said the Bolt EV would be a platform for electric vehicles going forward. Today we are showing the next chapter of that.”
“General Motors believes the future is all-electric,” said Mark Reuss, the company’s head of product. “We are far along in our plan to lead the way to that future world.”
“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,” Reuss continued.
