GM Promises 20 New Electric Vehicles by 2023

Electric vehicles will have a starring role in the General Motors vision of a future with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion. That was the gist of an October announcement from GM chairman and CEO Mary Barra. It was further emphasized by GM’s Executive Vice President of Product Planning, Mark Reuss, who added, “General Motors believes in an all-electric future.”

To that end, GM will release 20 new all-electric vehicles by 2023, two of which will arrive in showrooms in the next 18 months. According to a press release accompanying the announcement, this score of EVs will be propelled by electric systems featuring either batteries or fuel cells.

GM currently offers just one fully electric car: the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV. With a base price around $36,000, it claims a 238-mile range on a full charge. Its flat battery pack spans the entire length of the car’s floor. A DC Fast Charging system with the appropriate connector can charge 90 miles of range in 30 minutes.
