DETROIT — By 2026, General Motors could have as many as 30 electric vehicles on sale in the U.S., but the shift doesn't necessarily spell the end of most internal-combustion models.
GM has said it will invest $35 billion in electric and autonomous vehicle development through 2025, and CEO Mary Barra promised to launch 30 EVs globally through the same year. The automaker could beat that goal if EV rollouts go as anticipated. Beyond that time frame, GM also is working with Honda to co-develop affordable electric crossovers they expect to begin selling in large numbers in 2027.
Cadillac and Buick will be the first GM brands to go fully electric. Both intend to be all-electric by 2030. By 2026, the Escalade will be Cadillac's only remaining gasoline-powered nameplate, and it will be sold alongside battery-powered versions.
