General Motors (GM) is making plans to achieve carbon neutrality for its global products by 2040. Through collaborations with nonprofits, stakeholders and the federal government, GM has committed to making the necessary changes to their product lines and charging infrastructure to support the move to zero-emissions vehicles at a range of price points.
Some of these shifts include new electric delivery vehicles called BrightDrop, an EV for every customer, a hydrogen fuel-cell semi-truck, advancement of its Ultium battery technology, fuel economy improvements and carbon neutrality targets. The company is also investing $27 billion in electric and autonomous vehicles in the next five years. This shift towards an all-electric future demonstrates the company’s commitment to establishing a safer, greener and better world.
· GM will offer 30 all-electric models globally by mid-decade and 40% of the company’s U.S. models offered will be battery electric vehicles by the end of 2025
· GM will source 100% renewable energy to power its U.S. sites by 2030, and global sites by 2035
· GM is aiming to eliminate tailpipe emissions from all new light-duty vehicles produced by 2035
· More than half of GM’s capital spending and product development team will be devoted to electric and electric-autonomous vehicle programs.
