Giving into peer pressure and the new amendments U.S. government is about to make regarding emissions, General Motors, world’s largest automobile brand has committed to releasing at least 18 different all-electric cars by 2023.
The all-electric, zero emissions future is what GM is aiming to offer its customers. Two different models will be released in 2018 followed by more throughout the years to come. Going away from diesel and petrol is what all major automobile brands are doing including the likes of BMW, Jaguar and Aston Martin.
“General Motors do believe that the future is all-electric and we are already far into the plan to make it the norm. It is the future world we dream which we will do through prior planning,” said Mark Reuss, head of products.
General Motors is not new to the EV scenario as they have already launched a two-seat EV priced at just $5,300 in China. At least 10 electric, hybrid or plug-in hybrid models are headed to China by 2020 through which the company plans to create a stronghold in the Chinese market.
Things aren’t the same in the United States, their home region where they continue to sell petrol and diesel cars. After the proposed date, GM plans to eventually retire conventional fuels but there is no official date when gasoline may become a thing of the past in the automobile world.
