https://www.motortrend.com/news/gm-e...v-development/The electrical architecture, which is based on GM's Ultium battery system, is essentially developed and complete, Morris said. That means creating a new vehicle in 18 months is now the rule, not the exception. It is the new standard going forward, with so much of the underlying development having been front-loaded. He said it means the first test vehicles coming off the line feel like production vehicles, ready to hit the real world and be verified.
Ultium Batteries in 19 Flavors
The Ultium battery system can be configured 19 different ways to accommodate front-, rear-, and all-wheel drive as well as performance future vehicles in all sizes and segments. Key to continued growth is developing further software, says GM President Mark Reuss. "We want to advance entire EV portfolio which is where we need the additional horsepower of 3,000 more engineers," said Morris.
