Mark Reuss, GM’s executive vice president of global product development, has confirmed that GM will add a new electric vehicle to the lineup; speculation over the past months has locked in on a new EV that would be based on the Sonic with a range of about 200 miles, and a launch date in 2017.
Green Car Reports adds:
It will be based on the next-gen Sonic platform (based on the next-generation “Gamma” platform G2SC), and replace the Spark EV.
The battery cells will be provided by LG Chem.
A version of the Sonic EV will be badged as a new Opel Corsa EV.
