General Motors To Release 20 Electric Vehicles By 2023

By Brian Spaen

General Motors is joining the trend of eliminating gasoline and diesel vehicles in their future. Two fully electric models from the manufacturer will be released next year, while 18 more will join the roster by 2023. They are looking toward a future where there’s zero deadly emissions through the use of electric battery and hydrogen fuel cells.

While other manufacturers like Volvo and Jaguar are entering into the EV market, this will be the first time a major automaker has made the declaration to release a large fleet of electric models. Popular brands under the GM corporation include Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC. It’s unknown which brands will be getting the electrification, but 20 total models will be created over the next five years.

Over two weeks ago, GM announced that they would be opening a new battery factory in China along with nearly electrifying all of their models by 2025. This was mostly due to the country’s aggressive zero-emission vehicle mandate which requires eight percent of new car sales to be of the cleaner variety by next year. Some of this likely played a role in their recent announcement.
