President Biden and General Motors have been making claims recently about GM being the EV market leader, although after taking much heat on social media for the false claim, the Detroit automaker seems to be modifying their messaging a bit.
But the leadership claim begs the question, how many EVs is GM actually bringing to market and specifically in the US over the next four years through 2025? If you include BrightDrop, GM’s electric delivery van division, GM could have by my count 11 BEVs (GM no longer makes any PHEV models) available in 2025. This estimate assumes that both the Bolt EV and EUV will have been discontinued by then (which seems to be confirmed) and that at least one as of yet unconfirmed new BEVs — our conjecture being an electric Cadillac Escalade — will reach dealers by 2025.
All the other EVs listed in the table below has been confirmed by GM. What’s missing, however, are any Buick EVs. The most obvious model is a Buick Envision version of the recently announced Chevrolet Equinox EV. I think this is highly likely as when I attended GM’s EV Day in Detroit back in March 2020, the company showcased a near-identical Chevrolet and Buick electric crossover. And with the Buick brand being very popular in China, I would be very surprised if we didn’t see a Buick EV arrive at US dealers before the end of 2025.
While GM will have roughly double the number of EVs available in the US than Tesla at the end of 2025, it remains to be seen if GM can actually outsell the now Austin, Texas-based automaker.
