It Certainly Looks Like GM Just Teased New Electric Two-Door Models
General Motors recently announced plans to enable bi-directional charging in its new EVs starting in 2026, but the automaker snuck a hint into the end of that announcement that is worth unpacking. GM released a video with its announcement to highlight the feature, and at the end, text appears that says the tech will be available with “New Ultium-Based Coupes.”
The Ultium platform is wildly flexible and is able to underpin everything from the GMC Hummer EV to the compact Chevy Bolt, so we could be talking about almost any kind of two-door vehicle at this point - Ultium-based GMC Syclone, perhaps? However, we’re most likely talking about an electric Corvette or Camaro successor.
GM’s electric efforts have so far mainly focused on crossovers and pickup trucks, but CEO Mary Barra confirmed that the company plans to transition the affordable Chevrolet Bolt hatchback to Ultium technology for its next generation. The Equinox and Blazer EVs are on the way for 2024, and the Equinox is expected to bring a surprisingly affordable price tag of around $30,000 to start.
If the automaker can pull that off, it would be the most affordable EV on sale. That said, some Tesla models can be had for pennies on the dollar in states where buyers can stack state and federal incentives to reduce the price.
