INGERSOLL, Ont. — As General Motors rolls out a number of high-profile electric vehicles in 2023, including a battery-powered Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Hummer SUV, it's also starting full-scale production of a much lesser-known EV that is key to achieving its financial goals.
GM will begin producing the BrightDrop Zevo 600 electric delivery van on one shift at CAMI Assembly in Ingersoll in January, with plans to ramp up to multiple shifts by the end of next year.
Executives say the fledgling BrightDrop unit could deliver vehicles to more than 30 customers in the first half of 2023. BrightDrop has not yet disclosed that many customers, but Steve Hornyak, its chief commercial officer, told Automotive News that more announcements are coming.
