General Motors Announces Ultium Charge 360

Undoubtedly, the future of driving is in electric vehicles — and General Motors is leading the charge. On top of offering exciting new EVs like the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV and GMC HUMMER EV, GM is looking to make owning, driving, and charging an electric vehicle even easier with its new Ultium Charge 360 platform.

GM Chief EV Officer Travis Hester says that customers need “a robust charging experience that makes the transition to an EV seamless and helps drive mass adoption.” And that’s exactly what General Motors hopes Ultium Charge 360 will achieve. Hester says that the platform will make charging at home and on the go easier, allowing drivers to stay on top of their EV’s needs.

Ultium Charge 360 is a holistic, all-inclusive charging experience that offers multiple key facets. That includes working with major third parties including EVgo to increase fast-charger infrastructure and access, making it easier for drivers to change the way they drive without having to change much at all.

With Ultium Charge 360, you’ll also get access to apps that give you control over the charging experience so that you can save time and money. And it will provide EV owners with charging accessories and installation services to meet their needs as best as possible.

GM Reveals Hummer EV Details

With the news of the 2022 Hummer EV pickup truck taking the electric world by storm last year, GM has unveiled another addition to the Quiet Revolution and released more Hummer EV details. As GM’s first all-electric SUV, the Hummer EV will go into production in early 2023 with a release date of spring 2023.

Even though GM retired the Hummer brand in 2010, the automaker has revived the nameplate earlier with the electric pickup truck and now as an electric SUV. In designing a world with zero emissions, the Hummer EV will be powered by GM’s new modular electric battery platform, Ultium. With this Ultium platform, the Electric EV will enjoy a driving range of up to 400 miles with a 300 kW fast-charging capability. This efficiency translates into an extremely capable performance as well, as the Hummer EV will generate up to 830 horsepower and go from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds.

The Hummer EV SUV will also feature many of the same features as the Hummer EV pickup, such as Super Cruise, Extract Mode, and Crab Walk, a setting which lets the Hummer drive diagonally at low speeds by rotating all four wheels. The SUV will also include a 13.4-inch touch-screen center console display and 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

Chevrolet Reveals Bolt EV and Bolt EUV

General Motors has taken another major move toward a future with zero emissions. On February 14, Chevrolet unveiled the new, all-electric Chevy Bolt EUV and the redesigned Bolt EV. The Bolt EV and EUV are part of GM’s plan to launch 30 new electric vehicles globally by 2025.

Both the 2022 Bolt EV and EUV share a common platform, battery, and powertrain, with the Bolt EUV being slightly longer, taller, and heavier. The Bolt EUV has different exterior sheet metal and a more muscular, sculpted design. The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is six inches longer than the Bolt EV and offers three inches more rear-passenger legroom than its smaller counterpart. The 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and EUV also include a 10.2-inch diagonal infotainment color touchscreen and integrated climate controls.

With a range of 259 miles on a full charge, the 2022 Bolt EV easily displays its current charging status and makes charging easy through the myChevrolet Mobile App. The 2022 Bolt EUV achieves 250 miles on a full charge. The Chevy Bolt EV and Bolt EUV will both include the Super Cruise driver-assist system. With the help of cameras, radars, and sensors, the Super Cruise semi-autonomous highway driving system works on more than 200,000 miles of freeways in the United States and Canada.

If there’s one thing the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV reveal have taught us, it’s that Chevy is making the future of electric cars look very good. Learn more about the modern Chevy lineup and upcoming EVs at Courtesy Chevy Buick GMC Cadillac in Ruston, Louisiana.
