CADILLAC ELECTRIC VEHICLES
After the failure of the ELR, Cadillac aims to produce a plug-in hybrid for almost all its models.
GM, Cadillac’s parent company, sees itself as a leader in advanced battery technology, with three labs in the USA, Germany, and China. The USA lab is the largest battery systems lab for an automaker in America. GM is also the first US automaker to design and build drive trains and motors for electric vehicles. GM has produced more than 20 million battery cells for more than 73,000 GM plug-ins with a quality metrics of less than two problems per million battery cells produced.
General Motors markets its designed and manufactured vehicles under the following badges Chevrolet and Buick in USA, Canada, Mexico, and China, Holden in Australia and New Zealand, Vauxhall in the UK, and Opel in Europe. GM rebadges the Chevrolet Volt and Bolt under the Ampera name. In China, General Motors and its joint ventures will roll out more than ten new energy vehicles under the Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, and Baojun brands.
GM is also betting heavily on Hydrogen Fuel Cell technology. Looking ahead to 2020, in collaboration with Honda, the Company is developing next-gen hydrogen fuel cell systems and storage technologies.
GM is placing a huge focus on mobility by executing a plan to capitalize on the future of personal mobility using tools such as connectivity, ridesharing, car sharing and autonomous driving.
Expecting that by 2020 75% of all its global sales would be connected. GM’s OnStart platform is a market leader in the connectivity segment for the past 20 years, and the Company has a total of 500 connectivity patents. In China, all Cadillac, Buick, and Chevrolet models will be connected by 2020.
In January 2016, GM started its personal mobility brand called Maven, which combines and expands the company’s multiple car-sharing programs, including the EN-V 2.0 pilot program with Shanghai Jiao Tong University. GM recently announced a long-term strategic alliance with Lyft to create an integrated network of on-demand autonomous vehicles in the United States. GM will invest $500 million to help the company continue the rapid growth of its successful ridesharing service. GM acquired Cruise Automation in early 2016 to further accelerate GM’s development of autonomous vehicle technology.
