GM’s electric pickup truck to go on sale late 2021
Wanting, perhaps, to steal some of the brilliance of the presentation of Tesla Cybertruck, the first pick-up truck in the history of the American brand, GM CEO Mary Barra announced that the leading group will present his own Electric pick-up version in 2021.
The announcement was made in the context of the ‘ Barclay’s Global Automotive Conference ‘, with the timeline given by the General Motors CEO to look quite ambitious. We say this because GM’s vice-Presidents and strategy manager had rejected in January the possibility of creating an electric pick-up truck.
However, it seems that from January to today they changed the company’s plans. In fact, this is the deepest reason why the Detroit-Hamtramck factory did not closed.

The Barra did not reveal much about the pick-up which he called a BET (Battery Electric Truck), making rather a hint, since the word BET means betting (the bet of creating the first electric pick-up of the company). This model will be one of the 20 electrics that will present the company up to 2023.
