GM: More EVs than Expected Starting this Year

General Motors will produce more units of its new electric models than what the original plans called for

The race is heating up in the electric segment, despite the semiconductor shortage that is still affecting many players in the automotive industry.

At General Motors, this situation does not seem to be undermining the troops, especially after the announcements of the American giant’s boss, Mary Barra, who declared last week that the objectives of delivering 400,000 electric vehicles in North America in 2022 and 2023 were maintained.

As Reuters reports, new details indicate that the Cadillac Lyriq crossover and GMC Hummer EV pickup could see their respective production runs increase from a planned 7,000 to 46,000 units as early as this year. This information has reportedly already been shared with suppliers.

In the case of the GMC Hummer pickup and its utility variant, the automaker originally planned to assemble about 3,800 vehicles in 2022, but that number will swell to 21,000 copies of both models.

As for Cadillac’s very first EV, the Lyriq SUV, the initial production was set at 3,200 units, but the quantity of Cadillac Lyriq assembled in 2022 should reach 25,000 units.

Moreover, the numerous rumors of the last few months about the abandonment of the Chevrolet Bolt EV/Bolt EUV tandem were not founded. GM has confirmed that the production of both models will eventually resume. In fact, GM had promised 30 electric models before 2030, and the two versions of the Bolt are still part of this 30-odd EVs, despite the problems related to the battery packs of the two vehicles, which have caused a few fires in the last year.

Finally, reservations for the Chevrolet Silverado EV pickup have already reached 110,000 names, which suggests that the number of units expected to be produced in the first year of production next year will increase. We’ll see if that number grows over the next few months.

In any case, GM’s fairly optimistic goals will force brand strategists to unveil more electric models for the coming years – the Chevrolet Equinox EV and Chevrolet Blazer EV come to mind. And motorists will ultimately benefit.
