Volkswagen’s plan is to do just that by 2022.
Tesla’s already closing in on 500,000 units.
GM’s goal is to be the #1 EV seller in North America.
The race to EV dominance is already on and there are clear frontrunners already. Tesla has one heck of a head-start while Volkswagen already has a pair of production vehicles on the road. Nonetheless, General Motors wants in and has lofty goals.
The idea, as reported by Inside EVs, is a very high production scale through a vast number of EV options that would inevitably lower battery costs. In a nutshell, customers would have so many electric vehicle models to select from that they’d simply buy one.
Although GM’s shared quite a bit about its EV plans and Ultium battery technology recently, they’ve yet to produce an EV using the tech. For the moment, we’ve seen a few concepts in the GMC Hummer and Cadillac Lyriq but neither vehicle will generate volume. Volkswagen will begin selling the ID.4 SUV shortly. And well, Tesla is on fire and has just made Elon the richest man in the richest man in the world…
Everyone wants in on the EV action and take away attention from Tesla, but as we know, actions speak louder than words.
