GM Confirms New Commercial EVs
Aug. 9, 2021—General Motors confirmed on Wednesday it will add two electric vehicles to its commercial lineup in the coming years.
GM CEO Mary Barra said the manufacturer will add a full-size Chevrolet BEV cargo van as well as a "medium-duty truck" for service and utility vehicles such as school buses as part of its BrightDrop EV commercial business, according to a report from CNBC.
“Both will complement BrightDrop and keep our commercial fleet market share growing,” Barra told investors Wednesday during an earnings call. “We’ll share more details about these products as we move forward.”
The truck will operate on GM's Ultium battery and Hydrotec fuel cells. A timeframe for when the vehicles might hit the market has not been announced.
