GM will add a full-size electric pickup truck to its GMC lineup, pushing to deliver more than 1 million electric vehicles globally by the year 2025, the latest in a string of EV product announcements by maker Tomeker in the past year.
The EV pickup was shared in the slide slide during the media presentation and later confirmed to TechCrunch. Duncan Aldrade, vice president of Global Buick and GMC, did not give further details on the vehicle or when it will be in production.
The GM brand already aims to start production of its GMC Hummer EV in the fourth quarter of this year. The GMC Hummer EV, which will be produced at the company’s factory Zero assembly plant in Detroit and Hemtramac, has a range of 350 miles, 1,000 hp and, with a starting price of 80,000, 11,500 lb-ft of torque.
It was announced three months after GM announced that it would build an electric Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, which would also be assembled at the Factory Zero plant. The Chevrolet Silverdo EV Pickup will be based on the Tomaker’s ultimate battery platform and will have an estimated range of over 400 miles on a full charge.
GM President Mark Reus said at the time that the company was positioning a full-size Chevrolet store for both the consumer and commercial markets. Maker Tommaker plans to offer retail and fleet versions of the Silverrado Electric Pickup with a variety of options and configurations.
