Chevy’s Path to an Electric Car Future
General Motors has already shown the world how brilliant, and simple owning electric vehicles in the future can be. But that only marked the beginning. With the Ultifi technologies and Ultium platform to power most vehicles, the partnership is committed to putting at least 30 new electric vehicles on global roads by 2025 as part of a significant contribution toward zero emissions in the auto industry.
GM is making good on the promises and has reported that their GMC Hummer EV pickups have been produced and are ready for deliveries. The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, Cadillac's first EV, is also expected soon at the dealership. The model comes with a rear-wheel-drive system coupled with a 100-kilowatt-hour battery to deliver about 340 horsepower.
These discoveries represent a portion of the many Ultium-based vehicles produced in Chevrolet history. This article will discuss major innovations, platforms, and technologies that contribute to the overall success of zero emissions, zero crashes, and zero congestion EVs.
GM Ultium Batteries and Platform
GM's new Ultium batteries are a unique technology with significant achievement in electrification in the industry. The batteries have pouch-style and large-format cells that can be easily stacked horizontally or vertically inside the battery pack. Their energy options range between 50 and 200 kWh and enable a GM-estimated range of about 400 miles when fully charged with 0 to 60 mph acceleration. The Ultium battery pack is cheaper than those in Chevrolet Bolt electric cars but more efficient and effective.
Chevy EV Charging
With more electric cars expected in the global market, the big question is, "how long will it take to charge the vehicle?" Well! There is no one-size-fits-all answer because the vehicles have varied charging options: Domestic outlet home charging, public charging, and installed brand-approved domestic charging. However, a fully-charged car can get you through even three or four days without a recharge.
Chevrolet EV Products
GM is highly positioned to engineer and design the different Chevy EVs with agility and the required speed for different prices and styles. They are expected to add 30 more new global EVs by 2025 to the consumer market, mainly in North America and the Phoenix, AZ area.
