GMC Says It’s Considering an Electric Pickup Truck, Too



Electric pickup trucks have been coming, so you can have no doubt. Tesla and Rivian have announced plans to get an electrical pickup, and Ford has also confirmed it is going to build an electrical version of the F-150 sooner or later. It looks like GMC might be joining the race.

A senior executive at GMC stated an electrical truck is potential. “Certainly, it’something we’re thinking about,” Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC, informed the Detroit Bureau.

If it comes to electrical sockets, all eyes have been on the Rivian R1T, which surfaced at the Los Angeles auto show in November. The version is expected to deliver more than 400 miles of range. Tesla has not yet comprehensive its pickup, but CEO Elon Musk has said it’ll arrive right after the Model Y little utility (whenever that is exactly). Ford has provided no hints as to if its all-electric F-150 will emerge, but we hope it won’t be until 2021 along with also the next-generation F-series.

It’s unclear when GM could introduce its own potential electrical truck (or trucks, even as a Chevy variation would be a near certainty). It’s potential that GM is only making the announcement to stem potential criticism for not maintaining pace with Ford, to mention nothing of the additional EV truck upstarts, but there’s an opportunity the version arrives sooner than you may think. GM is planning a new electrical architecture anticipated to get there from 2021; a Cadillac is going to be the first car to sit on the new stage, along with also a new EV SUV from that new has been contested . From 2023, GM wants to introduce at least 20 new vehicles that are electrical, and it makes some sense to get a workhorse to be among them.
