GM is stepping into the EV segment with a plethora of new vehicles, announcing plans to completely transition its light-duty vehicle lineup to all-electric powertrains by the 2035 timeframe. The General’s latest all-electric vehicle lineup includes trucks, crossovers, SUVs, and even a sedan, but looking ahead, GM is hinting at the forthcoming arrival of new all-electric coupe models as well.
The hint was dropped in a new video outlining the expansion of GM’s new vehicle-to-home bidirectional charging technology.
For those readers who may be unaware, GM recently announced that all Ultium-based EVs would offer vehicle-to-home bidirectional charging by 2026. Bidirectional charging allows the users to power their home using the energy stored in their EV’s battery pack, reducing energy costs during peak usage, as well as reducing the impact of power outages.
The announcement included a short 38-second video outlining the tech and its expansion across the Ultium EV lineup.
“By 2026, vehicle to home technology will be available in new Ultium-based SUVs, sedans, coupes, hatchbacks, trucks,” the video text states. At first blush, it certainly looks as though GM is hinting at the introduction of fully electric coupe models by 2026.
Of course, this isn’t the first time GM has hinted at offering new electric coupes. Back in November of 2020, during the Barclay’s Automotive Conference, GM said it would introduce 30 new EVs globally by 2025, including new “low-roof entries” for Chevy and Cadillac. Two-third of those 30 models will be available in North America. GM has unveiled the new Buick Wildcat EV concept last year, which presents the Tri-Shield brand’s latest styling language in, you guessed it, a coupe body style.
Finally, GM has confirmed there will eventually be a next-generation Chevy Camaro model to follow the current sixth-gen sports car, which is headed for the door with the conclusion of the 2024 model year.
All this would certainly point to some new all-electric GM coupe models just over the horizon.
