General Motors is paving the way for an electrified future for its vehicles and the drivers who love them. They have even set a pressure-cooker deadline. By 2025, the automaker plans shoppers will have 30 new electric vehicles to choose from in its brands’ lineups. How will the automaker achieve such a bold goal of revolutionizing how their vehicles are powered? It starts with its innovative Ultium Platform.
Ultium Platform basics
The way GM plans to outfit its range of vehicle types from cars, SUVs, trucks, and even commercial vehicles, is with a versatile power unit that mimics a “one-size fits all” capability. That’s the Ultium Platform — a modular battery and drive unit that has the flexibility to electrify the GM range of vehicles thanks to its pouch cell design.
Not only is Ultium flexible and versatile, it also provides a powerful punch to every drive and an impressive range that keeps you on the road for miles and miles.
“The next generation of EVs by General Motors will be as responsive as they are powerful. Ultium enables a near 50/50 weight distribution of the vehicle and a lower center of gravity, which together result in a vehicle that’s sporty, responsive and allows for spirited driving,” reports GM.
