GM BrightDrop EV600 Electric Van: Real World Photos24
General Motors announced its new BrightDrop electric product ecosystem early this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), detailing a variety of last-mile electric delivery solutions, software, and services, as well as a new commercial delivery electric van dubbed the BrightDrop EV600. Now, we’re taking another look at the EV600 with the following real world photos.
This is the first time we’ve seen the new BrightDrop EV600 electric van outside of the official digital renderings. As we can see from the images, there are actually two EV600 electric vans on the trailer here, both of which have no livery added. Rather, we find the trucks are finished in crisp white paint, with black detailing for the doors and lower body pieces.
The front end of the BrightDrop EV600 has a blocked-off fascia for improved aerodynamics, plus thin horizontal lighting that stretches across the nose between lower black cladding and a tall-upright windshield. Large, vertical sideview mirrors are mounted ahead of the doors, while a simple wheel design is seen in the corners.
The rear view shows us the capacious cargo area. Per the vehicle name, the BrightDrop EV600 will offer more than 600 cubic feet of cargo room. Further features will include a range up to 250 miles with a full charge, as well as a peak charging rate of 170 miles of range per hour when plugged into a 120-kW DC fast charing source. The EV60 will also be available at a GVWR of less than 10,000 pounds.
Onboard technology will include a raft of standard safety features, including Front and Rear Park Assist, Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator, and Front Pedestrian Braking.
Motivating the new BrightDrop EV600 is GM’s latest Ultium battery and Ultium drive motor technology. Production takes place at the GM CAMI Assembly facility in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada.

Cool, good to see production starting on these vehicles, big growth opportunity for GM…
Kinda looks like a Tesla Plaid!
They are actually building the first batch at a suppliers facility locally to fullfil an order prior to actual production at CAMI. They trailer them to Factory Zero for alignment and role test. I am working on the line installs at FZ and have seen these coming and going daily.
KUKA is building them, in a former GM parts warehouse
Kuka is building the tooling for CAMI as well, so they can test the tooling before moving it to CAMI
Someone I know on the inside told me with confidence it only has 30 mile of range.
250 mile range
Please change your name. You can’t call yourself jes dafacts when you have made numerous corrections to statements you have made. You have been wrong multiple times so please change your name thanks.
So you are mad at me because you try to act like you know everything and use a name like jes dafacts but you are wrong lmao.
Lol you’re mad because someone pointed out Jes dafacts to you.
Let me guess….was it your mom? Tell her I said whats up! 😉
Someone told me you don’t have a clue…
Chee Wiz, bet the could sell a ton of these if the had a diesel or gas power train! INMO reminds of the P series trucks from the 50’s and 60’s
With these EVs, operators will save $7000 a year per vehicle in costs compared to their diesel brethren (fuel and maintenance.)
So this is a no brainer for many last mile operations.
With fuelflation at 120% this year and all inflation at 10% 10,000$ YOY will be more like it!
And just how do you know this? Electric cost are going up as I type this- Aldo last mile delivery vehicles tend to be the most abused vehicles on the road except for taxis and rental vehicles
The old Chevy box vans from the 70s and 80s ran well over 1 million miles before being retired. Big difference between commercial grade and consumer grade. Also with computers controlling acceleration and braking, big brother recording everything the driver does I would not be surprised when 2M is the retirement number.
Only 20% of the moving parts of an internal combustion van……less moving parts means less problems which means lower cost.
The electricity cost is much lower due to the amount required for a full charge.
graffiti artists/taggers are really going to dig this new design.
From the numbers here, useful battery capacity is about 176kwh. They’re probably the same packs as the H2, but in side by side configuration, rather than double stacked.
Most passenger EVs see reduced battery life when using max charging rates. I wonder what max charge rate will be without accelerating battery deterioration.
I think BrightDrop is going to be huge. Looks like one of the competitors is starting to struggle:
That’s an interesting article.
At least their CEO is honest.
With a little race prep it’ll be ready for the Dakar Rally.
