On October 6, General Motors announcing plans to convert more assembly plants in North America to make EVs by the end of the decade and to double company revenues by that time as it unveils more software and new EVs.
GM leaders told investors that it will also announce a new truck battery plant to be built in the U.S. soon.
GM CFO Paul Jacobson said the company's EV revenue is expected to grow from USD 10 billion in 2023 to USD 90 billion annually by 2030 as GM launches new EVs in high-volume segments.
Jacobson said connected vehicles and other new businesses will drive USD 80 billion in new, incremental revenue with most of the growth accelerating later in the decade.
GM will spend USD 9 billion to USD 10 billion a year in its transition to EVs, including investments in its Ultium Cells LLC joint-venture with LG Energy Solutions.
Cruise CEO Dan Ammann said the ride-hailing business Cruise should reach USD 50 billion in revenue as it ramps up operations over the next six years.
To get its 30 new EVs to market, more than half of GM's North America and China assembly plants will be able to be converted to build EVs by 2030.
While GM does not have any immediate plans to build any new assembly plants, it is currently building two Ultium Cells LLC battery plants as part of its joint venture.
Current EV plants include Orion Assembly, which builds the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV; Factory ZERO which will build the GMC Hummer EV pickup and SUV and Silverado E; Spring Hill Assembly which will build the Cadillac Lyriq SUV; CAMI in Ontario which will build BrightDrop EV delivery vans, and Ramos Arizpe Assembly in Mexico which will build batteries and electrical components starting later in 2021.
