General Motors was full of electric-car news following the Barclay Global Automotive Conference where CEO Mary Barra outlined the automaker’s future vehicle portfolio. If you’ll recall, we spotted one vehicle, in particular, completely uncovered and hiding in the slideshow presentation published online.
It’s the image you see above, but if you head back to the presentation, you’ll be treated to the image below, as Automotive News reported on Monday.
Clearly, GM either wanted to maximize its exposure and intentionally showed the car for a bit of extra buzz, or we truly weren’t supposed to see the image at all. The image still sits in the identical spot on the presentation and the slide still notes two new CUV entries by 2020. GM previously said two new all-electric cars will arrive in the next 18 months.
We surmised the electric crossover is likely a Chevrolet, and many readers noted its design similarities to the FNR-X concept shown earlier this year in China. We do know, however, one of the new crossovers will likely be a Bolt EV-based Buick as well. The car featured in the original image was unbranded.
Whatever the case, GM no longer wants us to see the particular image, but many outlets already clipped the car from the presentation. We’ll have to wait and see what becomes of it.
