Corvette SUV? GM’s electric innovations


The General Motors concern presented a line of electric vehicles within the framework of the virtual exhibition CES, among which there were four unknown models at once. As it turned out during the presentation, electrification will affect the new Buick.

Michael Simcoe, GM’s Vice President of global design, came out to present the new models on the virtual stage. Behind him were seven electric vehicles, among which you can identify the Chevrolet Bolt EUV and GMC Hummer EV Pickup, expected in 2022, as well as the Cadillac Lyriq, which will be “launched” in 2023.

According to a GM representative, the new models will be built on the Ultium platform (aka Flexible Global EV). It can be assumed that the sedan on the far right is a new Cadillac Celestiq, announced by the concern earlier. Among the remaining three cars, Simcoe introduced new Buick electric crossovers, the prototypes of which are equipped with front optics strongly reminiscent of the Chevrolet Corvette. The latest novelty, located on the rear right, is likely to be an electric pickup truck from the same Chevrolet.

Other details about the new models, Michael Simone failed. However, if future electric cars are equipped with Ultium batteries, their range on a single charge can reach up to 600 kilometers at a maximum speed of 583 horsepower.

In September last year, General Motors revealed some details of the new electric power plant. The architecture, which will allow the creation of electric units with a capacity of 235 to 1000 horsepower, will form the basis of future models that the company plans to produce until 2023.
