I come from the software world where people trot out really slick demos all the time and six months later the production version is released and it’s the bomb all right .I will GM credit as the BEV Silverado will be built on a new dedicated 100% electric platform. Ford took the cheaper approach and modified the existing F-150 platform until an all new F-150 Lightning debuts in 2025.
I won’t give anyone credit for anything until they have them on the road and hear what people actually think about them. GM has been talking about dedicated EV skates for 14 years. That design was trotted out with the original Volt… it never shipped.
So far their EV platform has been 80% LG and 20% GM, there is a reason LG reimbursed GM 95% of the cost of their recall, it’s LG‘s platform.
If GM wants to talk big, they need to get cars on the road that use their design. And something in a little more volume than the Hummer.
