General Motors launches 100% electric delivery van

General Motors is launching a new sub-brand, BrightDrop, and introducing a fully electric delivery van: the EV600.

It all took place as part of the virtual edition of the CES (Consumer Electronics Show), a few days after the American giant unveiled its new generation logo.

With sliding doors at the front, the EV600 promises a range of up to 402 kilometers. With a 120 kW terminal, the van should be able to gain 170 kilometers in an hour.

The cargo volume is 17 cubic meters. As for the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), it stands at 10,000 pounds. On board, the dashboard is dominated by a large 34-centimeter screen, to which the vehicle’s infotainment system is connected.

The first units of the EV600 are expected to be produced by the end of the year. Moreover, the first 500 of them will be delivered to FedEx which took part in the development process.

For the Canadian market, we will have to wait longer, we were told. The price range remains unknown.

During this presentation led by BrightDrop CEO Travis Katz, the veil was also lifted on EP1. Roughly speaking, this is an advanced and revolutionary form of a pallet truck. Unsurprisingly, he’s powered by electricity, too.
