CES: automakers go green with the latest electric vehicles
LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Auto manufacturers around the world gathered at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to show how the industry is going green with the latest electric vehicles.
Although attendance at CES may be low due to the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses are still using the show to make headlines around the world.
Vietnamese automaker VinFast has unveiled its electric fleet that could arrive in the United States in the near future, and Turkish automaker Togg has raised the curtain on its concept vehicle.
Togg’s electric car shows the future of automotive technology, according to Gurcan Karakas.
âWe’re just at the start of the transformation, we were born into this. In this sense, it is more than a car in the ecosystem itself, we believe that living rooms and offices will be similar to these smart devices, âKarakas said.
U.S. automakers have also come up with their products: Chrysler unveiled the concept of an all-electric airflow that could hit the road by 2025 and also announced plans for a fully-electric portfolio by 2028.
General Motors attended the show virtually and made waves online and on social media, unveiling the Silverado 2024, its first electric pickup.
âReally overall the pickup is packed with a lot of technology,â said Silverado chief engineer Nichole Kraatz. â400 miles of range is a huge number, so the anxiety around range and whether or not you will find a charging station, General Motors is building EV Grow and other charging stations publicly so that people can find a refill. “
GM is taking reservations online for its release in mid-2023.
âA transformation of the auto industry to enter the EV space, there is a lot of competition and I think General Motors is very well positioned to be competitive in this space,â Kraatz said.
As electric cars take control of CES, it was announced this week that Nevada will receive $ 38 million from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act to expand the state’s top-to-bottom electric charging network.
