General Motors is aiming to have more than 15 new electric vehicle models, based on General Motors’ dedicated EV platform Ultium, on offer to Chinese customers by 2025, in a bid to catch up with leaders in the world’s biggest EV market. In September, the American legacy carmaker began delivery of the Cadillac Lyriq crossover, its first Ultium-based vehicle introduced to China and locally made with partner SAIC. The company plans to sell imported premium EVs via a new direct sales business platform in 2024, including a fully electric Hummer and Cadillac Celestiq. GM’s China sales increased by 1% year-on-year to around 629,900 vehicles in the third quarter of 2022. [GM release]
