Yes and when others show that BEV pickups are workable and people do want them, guys like Mike Ableson will be looking for a new job and GM will be frantically looking to catch up. I personally hope that Mr. Ableson's comment is a ruse and they do indeed have BEV plans in the works. Imagine it, as the Tesla pickup gets closer to reality with concepts shown and deposits made, BAM!!! Out of nowhere comes a Chevy BEV production ready pickup concept, ready for delivery in just a year.This statement seems pretty clear. But hey, it's only words.
Mike Ableson, General Motors Vice President Global Strategy, said at the GM Global Headquarters in Detroit that we shouldn’t count on an electric pickup from GM:
“The core business is going to be the core business for a couple of decades to come. There will not be any AV/EV pickups.”
