    Well I guess that pretty much ends the will they or wont they with the CT6. Using Dham to produce the Upcoming EV onslaught is the final nail in the CT6's coffin.

    Apparently Barra said this a few days ago.

    If Dham is making the EV pickup, what is Orion doing? Just smaller stuff like upcoming Bolt CUV?

    On a personal note, any chance they keep the Sonic going (updated) at Orion? Probably not *sigh*.

    Too late to reincarnate the Volt as a ute? You know, take a great, popular success and build on it? Asking for a friend.

    You're going to get a lot older too. Soon you'll have a furrowed-like-a-freshly-plowed-corn-field forehead like Mary of Mary, Mark, Luke, John, The Acts. No worries! It's all good!

    “General Motors understands truck buyers and … people who are new coming into the truck market,” Barra said. “It will be a very capable truck, I’m pretty excited about it.”
    So wait; GM sells ~1,000,000 pickups in North America a YEAR, what is the EV to ICE mix again?

    GM has built cars & trucks on the same assembly line in the past, never mind in the same assembly plant.

    Also depends on if they set it up that way too. If it can only fit cars down the line (we've seen that before) then it's a huge retool to get it right.

    I heard that through focus groups studies done with "real people" GM expects to be able to sell a kajillion EVs to every 1 million pickups annually.

    Well, I heard that zerox3 will be reality by January 20, 2021 and thanks to Greta the wonder zombie, Al algore "Mr Green Genes" Gore, and Mary "'lektrik" Berra, the world will be saved. By 2025 everyone will be driving an amazing 'lektrik, the grid will magically power up doing in two years what normally would take 100, and there will be World Peace.
