Americans love pickup vans. Pickups accounted for 20% of all automobile gross sales to date this yr, in response to Edmunds, and they’re outselling sedans for the primary time ever.

At the identical time, there may be an electrical revolution going down.

I compare it to the start of the 19th century when motor vehicles were first being invented,” stated Duncan Aldred, VP of Global Buick and GMC. “We’re in a similar time period now. There’s a lot of people, nontraditional manufacturers, who want to come and be part of this journey to the electric vehicle.”

Established gamers like GM, Ford and Tesla and a slew of startups like Rivian, Lordstown Motors and Bollinger Motors are all engaged on electrical pickups.
