General Motors Vice President Of Electric Car Programs, Pam Fletcher, has earned the 2017 Henry Ford II Distinguished Award for Excellence in Automotive Engineering.
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) bestowed Fletcher with the award on Wednesday and noted Fletcher’s work in leading GM’s entire global electric vehicle portfolio. She’s been an integral part to GM’s electric-car strategy, which will include 20 new battery-electric cars by 2023. Prior to her current role, Fletcher also led the teams responsible for the development of the second-generation Chevrolet Volt, the Chevrolet Spark EV and the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV.
Fletcher’s team also worked and led development on GM’s semi self-driving technology, Super Cruise. The technology debuted on the 2018 Cadillac CT6 last year, but the system will reach additional GM brands post-2020.
