“We are building the best and broadest EV portfolio in the market, bar none,” Al Shurafa said. “Our aspiration is to be number one in EVs in the region, and launching 13 new electric vehicles over the next four years reflects our commitment.”
Furthermore, Al Shurafa stated that GM will continue to strengthen and deepen its existing strategic alliances “across the public and private sectors,” as well as forge new ones in the future.
In January 2022, the latest Chevy Bolt EV will arrive in the region. Following that, in Q4 2022, General Motors will unveil the all-new GMC Hummer EV truck, followed by the Cadillac Lyriq in 2023.
The unveiling of GM’s new electric vehicle portfolio is in keeping with the automaker’s Triple Zero goals, which include zero emissions, zero crashes, and zero congestion, and includes electric vehicle technology as part of the company’s technology initiatives. These funds will also be used to research new autonomous vehicle (AV) technology. GM stated earlier this summer that it would increase its investment in electric and autonomous vehicles to $35 billion between 2021 and 2025.
In related news, General Motors declared in August that it aims to have the largest electric car market share in North America by 2040, while the automaker also stated earlier this month that it is dedicated to phasing out fossil fuels by 2040. GM also just opened the GM Factory Zero plant, which is the automaker’s first EV-only manufacturing facility.
