GM Says Electric Trucks are ‘Key’ to EV Future

DETROIT – The release of the GMC Hummer EV supertruck marks a milestone for General Motors.

GM says they believe that “electric trucks will be a true mark of progress toward a world with zero emissions.”

Whether just for preference or for necessary work, GM says it is working to make quality truck EVs that are suitable for everyone.

While the GMC Hummer EV was the first truck EV, GM says it certainly won’t be the last.

Since then, the Chevy Silverado EV has also been announced. GM says it is their goal to offer multiple variants and models that fit different EV truck customers’ needs.

Active safety systems, advanced batteries and the new digital vehicle platform, will all be implemented. The GMC Hummer EV batteries were developed in GM’s Battery Lab in Warren, Michigan.

The Factory Zero assembly plant is responsible for the production of the GMC Hummer EV and other models.

“I’m confident that our electric vehicle strategy is unmatched in the industry, in terms of our combination of advanced technology, flexibility, speed and scale,” says Mark Reuss, president of General Motors. “We know what customers want and expect, and we’re better positioned than anyone else to give them the EV that best suits them.”
