The industry-wide transition from gasoline-powered combustion engines to eco-friendly, all-electric powertrains has been a slow one. To give the changeover a much-needed boost, General Motors has pledged to be carbon neutral by 2040 in all of its global products and operations. That includes eliminating tailpipe emissions by 2035 with a GM lineup entirely made up of electric vehicles.
Using a science-based approach, GM is pioneering revolutionary Ultium battery technology, dedicating half of its capital spending to electric vehicle development. As one of the biggest automakers in the world, GM has massive influence on the industry and where it’s headed. This recent announcement by CEO Mary Barra is a big deal for those of us in San Angelo, Texas, who care about the environment and our area’s natural beauty.
The impending electrification of GMC and Buick vehicles is a welcome change that aims to leave a better world for future generations. We look forward to the day when we’ll sell a whole lineup of electric GM vehicles, including zero-emissions versions of the iconic GMC Sierra, Buick Enclave, and more.
Many Buick and GMC vehicles are already very fuel-efficient, so it’s no surprise that GM is taking the next step toward curbing climate change by transitioning to battery-powered electric designs or other zero-emissions vehicle technology that utilizes renewable energy. In fact, the upcoming HUMMER EV — arriving soon at Mitchell Buick GMC — is proof of what clean energy and creative engineering can do.
