GM’s electric vehicle offense is kicking into high gear as the company has announced Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC will all be getting EVs.
While we already knew the GMC HUMMER EV would be unveiled on May 20th, the company has confirmed its next electric vehicle will debut in April.

Teased at the 2019 North American International Auto Show, the model will be an electric crossover from Cadillac. The automaker is keeping details under wraps, but they confirmed it will be called the Lyriq.



Little is known about the vehicle at this point, but the teaser video suggests the model will have a fully enclosed grille with an illuminated crest logo. The company also released a new teaser image of the Lyriq and it appears far more rounded than in the original renderings.

Details are hard to make out, but we can see a rakish windscreen that flows into a sloping roof. There’s also an angular rear window and a prominent spoiler.



New Chevrolet Bolt and Bolt EUV

GM will also introduce a third electric vehicle this year. It’s a “new version” of the Chevrolet Bolt and it will be launched in late 2020. The company was tight-lipped on specifics, but previous reports have suggested the electric hatchback will receive a minor facelift.

Details are limited, but we can expect a host of exterior and interior changes. However, it remains unclear if the powertrain will be upgraded as the 2020 Bolt saw its range increase 21 miles (34 km) to 259 miles (417 km) overall.



Less than a year later, Chevrolet will introduce the 2022 Bolt EUV. The model will be launched during the summer of 2021 and become the first non-Cadillac vehicle to offer the Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system.

The model was accidentally revealed in 2017 and recently surfaced in China as the Buick Velite 7. It will be an electric crossover that rides on an “advanced version of the current award-winning Bolt EV architecture.”

China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology indicated the model will measure 167.9 inches (4264 mm) long and have a wheelbase that spans 105.3 inches (2675 mm). If those figures are correct, the Bolt EUV should be 3.9 inches (99 mm) longer than the Bolt and have a 2.9 inch (74 mm) longer wheelbase.

More EVs Are On The Horizon



Besides the aforementioned models, GM released a mysterious teaser image showing the front of four electric vehicles. The one of the far left appears to be a Cadillac, while the other three are anyone’s guess.

GM also released a teaser video showing the company’s new electric vehicle platform underpinning an assortment of models. The first appears to be a compact crossover, while the second looks like a coupe. As a result, it’s likely the “Lux Low Roof” model which is expected to be a Cadillac ELR successor.

The clip then shows an electric pickup which presumably the GMC HUMMER EV. Next is a crossover coupe which could be a production version of the Buick Enspire concept. The final vehicle appears to be the Cruise Origin, Cruise Cargo Pod or a commercial vehicle.



An All-New Platform For An All-New Electric Era



Besides teasing an assortment of upcoming models, GM revealed their third-generation global EV platform which will be powered by proprietary “Ultium” batteries.

Speaking of the latter, GM says their Ultium batteries are “unique in the industry because the large-format, pouch-style cells can be stacked vertically or horizontally inside the battery pack. This allows engineers to optimize battery energy storage and layout for each vehicle design.”

This modular design allows GM to create battery packs with capacities ranging from 50 to 200 kWh. The latter is downright massive as many EVs – including the Audi E-Tron, Mercedes EQC and Jaguar I-Pace – have capacities of less than 100 kWh. GM didn’t reveal detailed specifications, but confirmed the batteries could offer a range of 400 miles (644 km) or more.



The batteries will power new electric motors that have been developed in-house. They will support front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and performance all-wheel drive applications. Speaking of the latter, GM reiterated high-performance models will be able to rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in as little as three seconds.

Most of the upcoming EVs will have 400-volt battery packs and a fast-charging capability of up to 200 kW. However, electric trucks will have 800-volt battery packs and a 350 kW fast-charging capability.

GM didn’t say much about the platform, but confirmed it is “flexible enough to build a wide range of trucks, SUVs, crossovers, cars and commercial vehicles with outstanding design, performance, packaging, range and affordability.”

GM also noted future electric vehicles will be more affordable as their joint venture with LG Chem will drive battery cell costs below $100/kWh. The company added EVs are less complex as they’re planning “19 different battery and drive unit configurations initially, compared with 550 internal combustion powertrain combinations available today.”

Thanks to these changes, GM says their EV program will be profitable. The company also pointed to forecasts calling for “EV volumes to more than double from 2025 to 2030 to about 3 million units on average.” The company thinks those estimates are conservative and EVs will be even more popular.


Gm ha annunciato un mega piano per ottenere la propria fetta del mercato EV.
A breve verrà mostrata una crossover compatta su base Chevrolet Bolt (un bel flop), in aprile verrà svelato il GMC Hummer elettrico.
Entro fine anno arriverà anche un suv elettrico medio di Cadillac con autonomia fino a 644 km.
Si chiamerà Lyriq.

Sarà interessante osservare come risponderà il mercato americano verso questi veicoli. Gli Europei e i cinesi saranno costretti a comprarli, gli americani no ed infatti a parte Tesla i numeri sono molto scoraggianti. Tutto potrebbe cambiare se mr abbronzatura abbandonerà la casa bianca.

2 notizie importanti dalla galassia GM

1) il marchio Wuling diventerà globale come marchio low cost di Gm, intendiamo globale per quei pochi mercati in cui GM vende ancora.
Wuling è stato un successo enorme in Cina all’inizio degli anni ‘10 ma successivamente è calato in maniera pesante.

2) GM svilupperà 2 modelli elettrici per Honda. È un’ottima notizia per Gm che riceverà importanti fondi mentre spaventa il fatto che Honda non riesca da sola a sviluppare modelli elettrici da volumi elevati.

Sarà mica come Toyota che, avendo fiutato la fine (?) del gasolio, ad un certo punto decise di acquistare i diesel Bmw perché le costava meno che non svilupparli in proprio?

(di base nutro l'idea che l'auto elettrica subirà un ridimensionamento bestiale a causa della pandemia o meglio dei tanti regolamenti di conti a livello geopolitico che si faranno a fine emergenza, il mondo anglosassone non vuole più essere ricattabile da Pechino e, miei due cent, se fossimo un po' intelligenti anche come EU continentale dovremmo seguire questa linea)

Spero con tutto il cuore che tu abbia ragione.

Toyota comprava i diesel BMW perché alla fine era solo il mercato europeo a richiederli, non aveva senso per loro produrli in proprio anche se il 1.4 diesel della Yarsi fini anche alla Mini.

General Motors and Honda Motor Co. said Thursday that they have signed a memo of understanding to form a North American automotive alliance that may include a range of vehicles sold under both brands and further cooperation in purchasing, r&d and platforms.

Under the non-binding agreement, co-development of common platforms, including for electrified and internal combustion vehicles, will begin in early 2021.

The agreement builds on a partnership announced in April, in which GM will help develop two new electric vehicles for Honda that will be powered by GM's upcoming Ultium batteries.

Honda, a middling sized player on the global field, has been gradually expanding its cooperation with GM in recent years, amid a rush toward consolidation among some rivals.

GM earlier this year pledged $20 billion toward EV and autonomous vehicle development through 2025. It plans to launch 20 EVs globally by 2023 and says Cadillac, its lead EV brand, will have a fully electric lineup within the decade.

“This alliance will help both companies accelerate investment in future mobility innovation by freeing up additional resources,” Mark Reuss, president of General Motors, said in a joint statement. “Given our strong track record of collaboration, the companies would realize significant synergies in the development of today’s vehicle portfolio.”

Honda spokesman Koji Watanabe said the agreement does not entail a capital alliance or purchase of shares. The objective, he said, is to raise the efficiency of operations in North America and a capital tie-up was not deemed necessary to achieve that.

COVID-19: The future mobility delusion
Beyond the panic and denial surrounding the initial stages of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the world’s short-term response naturally emphasised the health aspect of the pandemic, which was then followed by the mid-term realisation that one needs to ‘get through’ this.

In recent years, Honda has routinely rebuffed suggestions it needs a capital alliance with another player to leverage scale, saying it prefers loose alliances centered around product.

Under the proposed alliance, Honda and GM would collaborate on a variety of segments for the key North American market. The companies will also coordinate on new technologies, vehicle platforms,
connectivity, propulsion systems, joint purchasing and manufacturing, they said. Purchasing collaboration, for example, would target materials, logistics and localization strategies, the companies said.

Many details of the partnership, such as what vehicles will be targeted first, when the first jointly-developed vehicles will come to market or estimates on potential synergies, have yet to be decided, Watanabe said.

“Through this new alliance with GM, we can achieve substantial cost efficiencies in North America that will enable us to invest in future mobility technology, while maintaining our own distinct and competitive product offerings,” Honda Executive Vice President Seiji Kuraishi said.

GM has shifted its portfolio in recent years, focusing on large, profitable pickups and SUVs to fund EV development. The automaker took a number of cost-cutting actions this year to weather the coronavirus pandemic, such as narrowing vehicle configuration options and delaying facelifts, but GM said its EV production and planning remained on track.

Savings are expected through the combined scale of the two companies, which are among the continent’s biggest-selling car manufacturers.

Honda e Gm hanno annunciato un memorandum of understanding che potrebbe prefigurare un’alleanza su vasta scala. Le 2 aziende hanno già firmato circa 2 anni fa un accordo per cui Gm fornirà la piattaforma per 2 veicoli elettrici per il marchio giapponese. Honda ha investito più di 2 miliardi di euro nella divisione Cruze di Gm.
Non è un segreto che molti analisti ritengano impossibile per Honda di sopravvivere da sola. Stiamo comunque parlando di una casa automobilistica che vende più di 5 milioni di auto l’anno, nel 2018 e 19 il governo giapponese nell’ambito del putsch contro Ghosn e Renault tentò di far fondere Honda e Nissan ma Honda rifiutò categoricamente.
Anche Gm potrebbe non rimanere single, la ritirata da molti mercati ha ridotto non di poco la grandezza dell’azienda, sicuramente sta meglio di Ford però potrebbe aver bisogno di aiuto in diversi campi.
Se questo memorandum avrà seguito Gm e Honda svilupperanno insieme non solo veicoli elettrici ma anche auto con motori a combustione.

General Motors Co. is laying the groundwork for a bigger bet on electric vehicles, telling investors at a virtual conference it plans to boost spending on them by more than a third to $27 billion as part of a push to introduce 30 battery-powered models by 2025.

The initiative outlined Thursday represents an increased investment of $7 billion and 10 more EVs than previously planned, including some that will be cheaper than $35,000. The announcement comes as rival automakers plan dozens of new all-electric models, which could benefit from EV-friendly policy changes expected under the administration of President-elect Joe Biden.

GM aims to cut the manufacturing cost of its Ultium battery pack by 60%, enabling EVs to achieve near price parity with gasoline-powered cars by around mid-decade, Doug Parks, GM’s executive vice president of global product development, said at a Barclays auto conference.

The automaker, which has struggled to sell its all-electric Chevrolet Bolt, says its next generation of EVs will appeal to a wider variety of buyers now that Tesla Inc. has primed the market for sexier and sportier battery-powered vehicles.

“We don’t want to just participate, we want to lead,” Parks said in a conference call Thursday with reporters. “Tesla has a good jump. They’re a formidable competitor and there are a lot of startups. We don’t want to cede leadership.”

Faster to Market

GM must also keep pace with traditional competitors. Volkswagen AG said last week that it plans to spend around $86 billion on new technology, with most of it going to electric vehicles.

With its new investment, GM expects to bring some planned vehicles to market faster. The Cadillac Lyriq crossover SUV will arrive in early 2022, instead of late that year. The Hummer EV also will arrive faster than its planned date next fall, but the company didn’t specify exactly how much earlier.

GM is expediting development of three GMC models including an EV pickup, four Chevrolet models including a pickup and compact crossover, four Cadillacs and two Buicks. Parks would not disclose the timing for the launch of these vehicles.

The electric-pickup market is heating up, with a battery-powered Ford F-150 and Tesla’s Texas-built Cybertruck on the way, as well as competition from startups such as Amazon.com Inc.-backed Rivian Automotive Inc.

Parks said the Chevy crossover SUV will be about the size of the current Equinox compact and cost less than $35,000. That would make it cheaper than the average gasoline-powered vehicle sold today.

Extended Driving Range

GM already is preparing to launch a second generation of the Ultium battery pack co-developed with LG Chem Ltd. that has increased power density. As a result, GM anticipates a driving range as far as 450 miles on a single charge.

The automaker plans to break ground next year on a new facility to develop the battery chemistry for the next-generation Ultium, which a spokeswoman said may be located on the grounds of GM’s global technical center in Warren, Michigan, outside Detroit

Gm ha aumentato gli investimenti destinati ai veicoli elettrici. Per adesso entro il 2021 sono previste la Cadillac Lyriq, la Chevrolet Bolt crossover e il pick up Hummer.
In più sono previsti 4 modelli elettrici per Chevrolet, 3 per GMC, 2 per Buick e 4 per Cadillac.
