During a meeting earlier this week, Duncan Aldred, a GMC executive confirmed to reporters that a full-size all-electric pickup truck would be on its way in the future. Automotive News reports that no other details were shared.
The upcoming GMC truck is the second electric pickup GM has confirmed this year and its third electric truck overall. The GMC Hummer EV pickup is scheduled to hit the streets in 2022. During Chevy’s electric Silverado announcement earlier this year, the company confirmed that the truck would be built using GM’s Ultium battery technology at the Factory Zero facility. Though we don’t know anything relating to pricing or release dates, analysts believe that both new trucks will hit dealers’ lots sometime in 2023.
Though the entire auto industry is in motion with new EV development and building or overhauling production facilities, General Motors has been especially busy with its electrification efforts. Late last week, the automaker announced a new fleet charging service that integrates OnStar and other technologies. GM says that the solution involves several charging station services across the country and is designed to ease commercial fleets’ transition to full electrification.
