GM teases electric crossover built on Chevy Bolt platformby Justin King
The company has outlined a bold plan to expand its EV lineup to at least nine models in the next few years.
General Motors has provided the first glimpse of its next electric model, adapting the Chevrolet Bolt's platform for a slightly larger crossover.
An image included in a recent investor presentation shows the mystery crossover above a note promising two new CUV entries by 2020.
The teaser is presented without a badge, however previous rumors and leaks have pointed to Buick as the top pick to host GM's next EV. The model will be particularly important for the company, presumably serving as a volume- and profit-focused follow-up to the Bolt.
Some rumors pointed to a simple rebadge of the Bolt for Buick, perhaps adding a more upscale interior. The image points to a clearer distinction in terms of size, shape and styling, adopting a more pronounced transition between the windshield rake and hood.
GM previously promised to launch at least 20 new EVs by 2023. The latest update places nearly half of the newcomers on the roadmap by 2021.
