Chevrolet launches attack on Tesla

General Motors has recently given in to the international drive for electrification. The brand name Hummer returns on a huge electric SUV, Cadillac will get an electric SUV in the form of the Lyriq and will eventually even market an electric top limo with the Celestiq. Even Buick has been introducing one new electric preview after another lately. GM’s volume brand Chevrolet cannot escape the EV either and will eventually have electric powertrains in various new models in the United States. There will not only be an electric Silverado, but even an electric Corvette. In addition, it will also market lower-positioned EVs in the foreseeable future, including two electric SUVs. Chevrolet does not yet have a direct competitor for the Tesla Model 3 or Model S, but that seems to be changing.

A touch of Camaro cannot be denied to the FNR-XE.

In China, Chevrolet has presented the FNR-XE, an electric sedan that, like the aforementioned Cadillac Lyriq, Celestiq, Silverado EV and the reborn Hummers, will use GM’s Ultium technology. The FNR-XE is very likely the harbinger of an electric sedan that will be launched at least in China. We do not yet have extensive technical specifications of the EV, apparently peppered with design elements copied from the Camaro.

GM’s Ultium battery and drive technology can be applied in EVs of various types and sizes. The electric motors, varying in power from 84, 347 and 245 hp, can be housed in various combinations in both the front and rear of the Ultium EVs. Chevrolet promises, among other things, high charging capacities and battery packs with a capacity of 50 kWh to 200 kWh. Honda is also going to market cars with this technology in cooperation with General Motors in the United States. One of them is the already presented Prologue.
