Mary Barra Confirms Electric Truck from GM
Earlier this year, General Motors CEO Mary Barra confirmed during a call with investors that we will soon be getting an electric truck from GM, but the rest of the details are still up in the air. We’re not sure when this electrified pickup will reach dealerships like Huber Chevrolet, if it will be a full-size or mid-size pickup, or which GM brand it will be branded as.
However, our money is on Chevy or GMC — or both. Cadillac, while the new flagship brand for electric vehicles for General Motors, is known for its high-performance luxury cars and SUVs. Buick is also focused on premium cars and crossovers. Chevrolet and GMC, on the other hand, have long been honed in on pickup trucks, among other model types.
Another strong case for GMC is that even earlier in the year than Barra’s announcement (in April), Duncan Aldred, the vice president of GMC, confirmed at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit that GMC was considering an electric truck.
But if the Colorado and Canyon and the Silverado and Sierra are any indication, whatever truck one of those brands releases, the other will likely follow suit with its own twist on it.
We’ll provide more updates as they become available. In the meantime, view our current inventory of trucks at Huber Chevrolet!
