The change to electrified transport has caused some major changes for General Motors in Michigan: About 3,000 employees, particularly powertrain engineers, are being moved from the Global Propulsion Systems Center in Pontiac to the GM Technical Center in Warren.
Through this consolidation of staff, General Motors is maneuvering themselves into a position to speed up the development of electrified vehicles.
General Motors is generally planning to bring at least 20 electric vehicle models to market by 2023. Manager Mark Reuss already stated about a year ago that the company believes in a fully electrified future. Furthermore, the US American vehicle manufacturer also wrote a petition to the US government to support a more direct approach to transport electrification by instituting an EV quota of 25% for new vehicles by 2030.
