GM Wants to Sell More Electric Vehicles than Tesla by 2025
Earlier this month, General Motors (GM) made an ambitious statement: it wants to be the leading seller of electric vehicles in the U.S. (and North America, we presume, so including Canada and Mexico).
The company had not, however, provided a target date for achieving this goal. But in an interview conducted by CNBC with General Motors CEO Mary Barra, we learned a little more about that. The executive said that GM could "absolutely" catch up to Tesla in sales by 2025.
Considering that Tesla is on an amazing run and selling vehicles at a record pace, that's a bold statement. Right now, GM is only offering the Bolt and Bolt EUV, two products that are scheduled to resume assembly next week following a highly publicized recall.
Despite this, Mary Barra remains confident that the models GM's divisions are developing will impress buyers to the point of attracting them to the company. The GMC Hummer EV, the Cadillac Lyriq and Celestiq and an electric version of the Chevrolet Equinox are on the way, as are electric variants of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, expected sometime next year.
