GM launches new commercial EV business unit
General Motors announced the launch of a new business unit focused on electric vehicles, software, and products for commercial delivery companies. The new unit (“BrightDrop”) is expected to launch later this year with FedEx Express as its first customer. The announcement comes amid a push by the 112-year old automaker to compete with Telsa and other manufacturers as the auto industry expands its focus on electric vehicles more broadly.
