General Motors said Tuesday it plans to launch an all-electric van called the EV600 this year.
The van – part of GM’s plan to invest $27 billion in electric and autonomous vehicles by 2025 – will be the first vehicle under a new commercial business unit in GM called BrightDrop. The EV600 will be capable of up to 250 miles per charge, according to Pam Fletcher, vice president of global innovation, who will oversee the new division.
“The game changer about BrightDrop is that it’s a one-stop shop ecosystem,” Fletcher said. “End-to-end, BrightDrop could help with the deliveries fleets need.”
