General Motors (NYSE:GM) is a global company focused on advancing an all-electric future that is inclusive and accessible to all. At the heart of this strategy is the Ultium Platform, which will power everything from mass-market to high-performance vehicles. GM is on track to invest $35 billion in electric and autonomous vehicles and will have the capacity for more than one-million EVs in North America by 2025.
 
GM is also leading integration with major EV charging networks to simplify the charging experience. Currently, customers can use their GM brand mobile apps to see real-time information for more than 100,000 charging spots throughout the U.S. and Canada. GM announced we will invest nearly $750 million to expand home, workplace and public charging, including the development of a Dealer Community Charging Program which will provide GM’s network of more than 4,000 dealers with up to 10 Ultium Level 2 chargers each to place in their communities. This is significant because nearly 90 percent of the U.S. population lives within 10 miles of a GM dealership.
