GM please build the baby EV pickup of my dreams • TechCrunch

In an industry obsessed with make everything huge (at least here in the US), you might not have expected GM to show interest in a baby electric pickup, but here we are.

GM is considering a pickup design that is “smaller than the Ford Maverick and the Hyundai Santa Cruz,” with a “low roofline” and a 4- to 4.5-foot bed, according to Automotive news. The publication reportedly saw a prototype of the EV in a GM workshop and said it was a price tag of less than $30,000 (that would be pretty cheap compared to most new EVs nowadays). Judging by this description, the small truck could serve as a spiritual successor to the Chevrolet S-10EVwho briefly made history as one of the first electric pick-ups late 90s.

The design is by no means final, GM design director Michael Pevovar reportedly told Automotive News, saying the automaker “creates this one to get a response and then try to modify it or move on.”

There’s still no sign that US companies will ever embrace ultra-teeny In the car-sized pickups, but I’m glad to see GM considering making something that isn’t honking big. My dream is that US automakers go further in this direction, but alas market doesn’t seem to share my appetite too small trucks.

The baby pick-up report preceded a busy day for GM. Though the automaker claims it will shed its lineup of gas guzzlers by 2035, it announced a plan on Friday to pump $579 million in its Flint facility to roll out another generation of its V-8 engines. GM’s production boss Gerald Johnson explained the somewhat contradictory move in a statement to reporters.

“Our commitment is to an all-electric future, there’s no question about that,” he said, with a big caveat: “There are a lot of internal combustion engine customers that we don’t want to lose.”

GM said it plans to invest an additional $339 million in three other facilities, which will produce EV components. We also learned that GM has suspended a plan to partner with LG on a fourth US battery factory. One such plant is already operational in Ohio, while two others are under development in Tennessee and Michigan.
