General Motors will launch 30 all-new electric vehicle models by the end of the decade, with the Cadillac, GMC, Chevrolet and Buick marques all confirmed to take part in the range expansion.

The manufacturing conglomerate – which was, until last week, working with the Trump administration to roll back a spate of environmental protections in the United States – says it now intends to invest $27 billion into its zero-emission development program.

In a recent public statement Chairman and CEO, Mary Barra, acknowledged the scientific consensus on climate change, and affirmed the brand’s commitment to “[being] part of the solution”.

An official development timeline suggests that 40 per cent of the company’s US models will be electrified by the end of 2025.

Last month the GMC Hummer EV was launched to much fanfare, with reservations on the first batch of cars reportedly filling up in 10 minutes.

The Cadillac LYRIQ SUV is expected to be the next electric GM model to launch, and is slated for arrival in the first quarter of 2022.
