GM wants to be completely electric by 2035

One of the many GM electric vehicles on the horizon.

General Motors announced today that it plans to produce only electric vehicles and only use renewable energy at its facilities by 2035.

The bold plan comes days after President Biden signed an executive order stating that he plans to replace all federal vehicles with electric vehicles in the near future. The move is also part of GM's wider goal to become a carbon-neutral company by 2040.

"For General Motors, our most significant carbon impact comes from tailpipe emissions of the vehicles that we sell – in our case, it's 75%," CEO Mary Barra wrote on LinkedIn. "That is why it is so important that we accelerate toward a future in which every vehicle we sell is a zero-emissions vehicle."

To date, GM has only released one full electric vehicle, the diminutive Chevrolet Bolt, but it has a dozen or so vehicles in the works, including an electric Hummer and a couple interestingly named Cadillacs.
