GM To Launch All-Electric Delivery Vans Starting In 2021

• By: Mark Kane

According to the latest media reports, General Motors' electrification plan (of 20 BEVs by 2023) will include not only cars/SUVs/pickups, but also commercial vehicles.

That's not surprising to us for two reasons. First, its main competitor in the U.S. - Ford, has the all-electric Ford Transit Electric van in the works (for 2021 in Europe and 2022 in North America) and is engaged with Rivian, which develops all-electric vans for Amazon.

Secondly, it's a natural next step to the all-electric pickup trucks, as many parts (including drive units and Ultium battery packs) might be shared with commercial vehicles.
