GM gives EN-V concept vehicle a Chevrolet badge, will run pilot-programs around the world

Chevrolet EN-V Concept

For the longest time, GM’s EN-V Concept vehicles have never really been branded with one of the automaker’s four brands. Today, GM announced that the company is working on the next-generation EN-V Concept vehicle in a goal to meet the demand for zero-emissions, all-electric urban transportation.

In addition, future EN-V concepts will carry a Chevrolet badge, Chris Perry, vice president, global Chevrolet marketing and strategy, told media on Wednesday.

“For 100 years, the Chevrolet brand has been focused on making advanced technology that improves customers’ lives accessible and affordable, and the Chevrolet EN-V will continue that tradition,” said Perry. By 2030, more than 60 percent of the world’s 8 billion people will live in urban areas. The Chevrolet EN-V represents a possible solution for global customers living in markets where alternative transportation solutions are needed.”

GM said that it has also signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate with Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City Investment and Development Co. Ltd. (SSTEC). The two will join forces to integrating the next-generation EN-V into the Tianjin Eco-City from a power, communications and physical infrastructure perspective.

Chevrolet will run pilot programs around the world including the United States.

The current GM EN-V Concept is powered by lithium-ion batteries and can travel a total of 25 miles on a full charge.
