GM’s CES keynote will reportedly show off an electric Chevrolet pickup
Cadillac introduced its first electric vehicle called the Lyriq back in August. It will be the first model to use GM’s “Ultium” scalable battery system, which the automaker’s other brands will also use for their vehicles, including GMC’s Hummer EV. We could also see concept EV models if Cadillac showcases more than one vehicle, especially since it’s not unthinkable for the brand to work more on it at this point. Autoblog previously reported that Cadillac could go without gasoline as early as 2025, five years ahead of schedule.
An article published in the Wall Street Journal in December said GM is facing opposition from dealers that could hamper its electrification plans. Around 150 dealerships in the U.S. have apparently decided to drop the Cadillac brand instead of spending $ 200,000 on upgrades for devices such as charging stations and repair hardware necessary to sell electric vehicles. However, if more states follow California to ban gasoline vehicle sales within the next 15 years, they may have no choice but to get these EV upgrades.
