General Motors Gets Serious About Electric Cars

General Motors Gets Serious About Electric Cars

According to the company, its September domestic passenger and commercial vehicle sales rose by 25 per cent to 53,965 units.

She also added that GM will help with "accelerating" the deployment of rapid-charging stations for its customers.

Mark Reuss, the company's chief of global product development, said Monday that GM would introduce two new all-electric vehicles derived from its current battery-powered Chevrolet Bolt sedan. Capable of producing electricity for driving the vehicle's motors from compressed hydrogen in a super-strong tank carried onboard, fuel cell cars emit only water. GM sells more cars in China than in its home market. GM has said in the past that it thinks fuel cells make sense in applications where battery packs would be too big and heavy, or when recharging times are critical - heavy trucks, for example, or vehicles used by first responders, which can't afford to be out of service for hours to recharge.

GM showed us the broad plan on Monday, but - aside from a few hints - it was short on specific details on the upcoming all-electric models. The two models will be the first of at least 20 new all-electric vehicles that G.M. plans to bring out by 2023.

China: Trump bank ban statement 'not consistent' with facts
South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who met with Trump on Thursday and addressed the U.N. Lavrov suggested that a neutral European country could mediate.

GM stock opened sharply higher - after the company's event had been scheduled but before its announcement had been made - and was up nearly 4 percent in afternoon trading. The company hints that the other 18-plus EV models will come off a revised or all-new platform derived from the Bolt, using a "structured battery pack" that can be built to two different heights, with flexibility to fit any kind of vehicle.

But this week may top it, thanks to one single, massive announcement: General Motors is dumping gasoline in favor of an electric future.

"We see an inflection point in the major markets toward battery electric vehicles", Marakby said. California regulators first launched a zero-emissions mandate two decades ago but rolled it back when it became clear the technology of that era would not meet consumer demand.

Government mandates, including the latest version of the California ZEV rules, are leading to a rapid adoption of alternative powertrain technologies - even though President Donald Trump's EPA is expected to roll back the strict USA fuel economy rules set to phase in through 2025. The Motley Fool has no position in any of the stocks mentioned.
