The flood gates of electric pickup trucks have fully opened. GM CEO, Marry Barra, stated that a GM electric truck will reach the market “in the fall of 2021”. This statement was made today at an investor meeting.
This news initially came out several weeks ago when GM and UAW were finalizing their labor agreement. The agreement stated that GM is planning to produce an electric pickup truck and an electric SUV. The exact models or timing were not disclosed at the time.
Now, we learn a little more detail on the timing. The fall of 2021 sounds like an aggressive, but reasonable timeframe. Rivian, Bollinger, and several other companies are targeting their trucks to go on sale by early 2021.
It’s not clear exactly when Ford is planning to start selling an electric F-150, but most reports suggest it will also be before 2022.
