GM to launch 10 more new energy vehicle models in China between 2021 and 2023
On Tuesday, U.S. automaker General Motors (GM) announced that the company plans to introduce 10 more new energy vehicle models in China during the period between 2021 and 2023.
The recent announcement by Detroit-based GM about its planned launch of more new energy vehicle models in China means that the automaker plans to double the 10 models which it intends to launch in China for the period between 2016 and 2020.
With China -- the biggest automobile market in the world -- taking gradual steps to steadily phase out fossil-fuel powered vehicles, the Tuesday announcement by GM implies that the automaker has now joined some of the other automakers who are planning to extend their electric-vehicle (EV) investments in China.
Already, GM has -- in accordance with its previous plans -- launched three new energy vehicle models in China. These models are: the Cadillac CT6 Plug-in, the Baojun E100, and the Buick VELITE 5 extended-range electric vehicle. In addition, two more Buick hybrid and electric cars will soon be launched by GM in China.
Despite the fact that GM has not yet made any official disclosure with regard to its new energy vehicle sales in China, the automaker has, nonetheless, stated that such vehicle models had logged over 75 million electric kilometers in China by the end of May 2018.
