GM’s latest all-electric efforts include a vast array of new Chevrolet vehicles, and now, fans can take command of five of these Chevrolet electric vehicles (EVs) in the new “Chevrolet Charged Up” mobile game.
The game is relatively simple, employing the phone’s onboard camera to create an augmented reality display that includes the player’s Chevrolet vehicle of choice, cones, mud, and collectable icons. Players direct their vehicle using an on-screen steering wheel to collect green and blue orbs that grant points, all while avoiding the traffic cones and mud. Grab the leaf icon to receive double points for a limited time.
Players have five Chevrolet electric vehicles to choose from, including the Chevy Silverado EV pickup, Chevy Blazer EV crossover, Chevy Equinox EV crossover, Chevy Bolt EUV, and Chevy Bolt EV. The different cars don’t appear to offer any difference in gameplay, but do change the onscreen vehicle icon that is used in-game. The vehicle selection screen also provides a few interesting factoids about each model.
To play the game, simply open the web browser on your mobile phone web and visit chevychargedup.com. From there, players can select their preferred Chevrolet electric vehicle and start racking up the points.
General Motors’ all-electric vehicle efforts extend well beyond the Chevrolet brand, with the automaker aiming to eliminate tailpipe emissions from its new light-duty vehicle lineup by 2035. To that end, GM will offer 30 new all-electric models globally by mid-decade, while 40 percent of GM’s U.S. models will be battery-powered by the end of 2025.
GM’s all-electric efforts include substantial investments into both new technology development and EV production, the latter of which is highlighted by four new battery production facilities in the U.S. under a joint agreement with LG Energy. The joint effort, dubbed Ultium Cells LLC, opened its first battery production facility in September, with two more under construction now, and a fourth planned for the future.
