Where is General Motors investing in their business?
GM reassures customers that the new software is ‘a business for us’
GM predicted earlier this year that by 2030, software-as-a-service will bring in $20 billion annually. Nonetheless, General Motors currently has hundreds of data scientists studying consumer behavior in order to get there. The company’s insurance through OnStar comes with a promise of more subscription services as they search for a means to connect the purchase of a car to software services or to other new GM businesses. “I wouldn’t expect us to charge someone $18 for heated seats,” remarked Alan Wexler, senior vice president of strategy and innovation at GM.
GM venture to invest additional $275M at Tennessee plant
A joint venture between General Motors and South Korean battery company LG Energy Solution announced Friday that it will invest an additional $275 million to expand a Tennessee battery cell factory for electric vehicles. Officials with the companies had already pledged to spend $2.3 billion to build a battery plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee. The additional investment is anticipated to result in 40% more battery cell output when the plant is fully operational. Production at the 2.8-million-square-foot facility is expected to begin in late 2023. The Tennessee plant is one of three lithium-ion battery factories being built by the joint venture, Ultium Cells LLC. The other two are in Michigan and Ohio. A fourth is also expected, but the site has not yet been named. Overall the three plants are expected to create up to 6,000 construction jobs and 5,100 operations jobs when completed.
General Motors Will Stick With Internal Combustion Engines Amid EV Expansion
General Motors is one of the automakers that have the most ambitious EV strategies. The manufacturer wants to beat Tesla in its own game by the middle of the decade but apparently, that doesn’t mean GM will abandon the internal combustion engine. In fact, a company executive currently confirmed the ICE is here to stay for the years to come and GM will continue to rely on its services. GM President Mark Reuss recently gave an interview to Fox Business ahead of the company’s investor day presentation in New York. He told our colleagues General Motors is not ready to leave the traditional mainstream segments where models with combustion power are still dominating sales by a wide margin. "The ICE age is not over," Reuss told Fox Business. "We’re not going to abandon our internal combustion engine segments. We’ve got truck leadership with GMC and Chevrolet. We’ve got it across our midsize trucks, our full-size trucks, and then beyond." If you’ve been following the automotive industry more closely in the last few years, you won’t be very surprised by Reuss’ statement. More and more automakers are strengthening their combustion-powered portfolios to keep earning money and start investing in electric vehicles. In GM’s case, the company wants to pour around $35 billion into EV and autonomous technologies by the middle of the decade.
In February this year, the automaker’s CEO Mary Barra declared General Motors had plans to deliver about 400,000 electric vehicles in North America through 2023 and up to one million EVs in the region through 2025. However, the rapidly changing automotive industry forced GM to change its forecast, and during the Q3 2022 earnings call on October 25, Barra changed the timeline to the first half of 2024 – or six months later than initially planned – for the first goal. In the new interview, Reuss commented on when he expects the investments in the EV sector to start bringing fresh money and that year is 2025. “Then we begin to make money on EVs and the margin structure becomes very good."
GM Targeting $50 Billion In EV Revenue By 2025
In a recent press release, General Motors outlined several of its short-term goals related to electrification. Undoubtedly, the firm is dedicated to launching EVs and soon aims to have multiple electric offerings in 70% of industry segments. By 2025, GM aims to generate $50 billion a year in EV revenue. The firm's CEO, Marry Barra, stated the following: “GM’s ability to grow EV sales is the payoff for many years of investment in R&D, design, engineering, manufacturing, our supply chain and a new EV customer experience that is designed to be the best in the industry.” Barra also discussed how GM's "multi-brand, multi-segment, multi price point EV strategy" gives it "incredible leverage" to grow revenue and market share. Furthermore, Barra mentioned the positives of GM's Ultium Platform and how it will continuously be improving. The press release mentioned the Chevrolet Silverado EV, Equinox EV, and Blazer EV, the Cadillac LYRIQ, and the GMC Sierra EV as key models which will seriously boost sales. Meanwhile, other vehicles like the Cadillac Celestiq will serve as flagships for the brand but clearly won't have a major commercial impact given the limited numbers they will be sold in. In North America, GM aims to build 400,000 EVs from 2022 through the first half of 2024. By 2025, the automaker wants to make 1 million EVs annually in North America.
GM Appoints Alan Wexler As Senior Vice President, Innovation And Growth
General Motors has created a new position within its upper ranks: senior vice president of Innovation and Growth. This new role has been filled by Alan Wexler, the former chairman and CEO of digital business transformation firm Publicis Sapient. GM says Wexler “will be responsible for creating, executing and sustaining overall corporate strategies, including identifying future growth opportunities and driving innovation throughout the company.” He will report directly to GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra. “Alan brings a proven track record and decades of experience leading a culture of innovation and customer-driven technology solutions,” Barra said

General Motors detected malicious login activity to customers’ accounts between April 11 and April 29.

What are General Motors executives saying about business performance?
General Motors (GM) Q3 2022 Earnings Call Highlights
October 25, 2022
Executives in Attendance
- Ashish Kohli - VP, Investor Relations
- Mary Barra - CEO and Chairwoman
- Kyle Vogt - CEO Cruise
Comments from Mary Barra, CEO and Chairman
"The third quarter brings our EBIT-adjusted earnings for the first nine months of the year to $10.7 billion, which keeps us on track to deliver our full-year guidance."
"We translated improved supply chain performance into another quarter of full-size pickup and full-size SUV sales leadership with very strong mix and pricing. The Cadillac Escalade also continues to lead its segment by a wide margin. Chevrolet and GMC unveiled new midsize and heavy-duty pickups to help maintain our strong position when they launch. And the Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV are selling at record levels, thanks to their range, technology, and value."
"And in September, they outsold the Ford Mustang Mach-E more than two to one. BrightDrop is generating revenue in the last-mile delivery segment. And later this year, CAMI Assembly is set to launch BrightDrop production, making its candidate's first large-scale EV plant. Production will ramp up in 2023 to begin fulfilling major orders from our customers, including Walmart, FedEx, and Merchants Fleet."
"The most recent example is the strategic investment we made in Queensland Pacific Metals of Australia to secure cost-competitive nickel and cobalt. The new clean energy tax credits of the U.S. certainly validate our strategy, and they will be a strong tailwind to expand domestic supply chain capacity and drive EV adoption. As we scale the Ultium platform, we have been very intentional to position the company for volume growth, but with flexibility, efficiency, and increased EV profitability over time."
Kyle Vogt, CEO, Cruise:
“Overall, we remain largely on track for our goals this year, including expansion in San Francisco and the goal we announced in September to begin commercial driverless operation in two new markets. We've now driven well over 400,000 fully driverless miles in San Francisco and given thousands of rides to members of the public, and we expect to expand our service area and hours of operation soon. We believe this is now the largest, fastest-growing, and most successful commercial robotaxi service in existence and by a large margin.”
“We've done this while building up a solid track record around safety, especially our safety culture, which drives our decision-making and approach to responsible EV deployment. Our product experience is getting better all the time, and we see this reflected in increased adoption and in many rave reviews we receive across both our ride-hail and delivery operations. As you may recall, we plan to do early commercialization in '21 and '22, and we have. Next year marks the beginning of our rapid scaling phase, where we plan to churn through the backlog of users waiting to use our service, ramp up our operations and start to generate meaningful revenue.”
“As for our new markets, Austin and Phoenix, we remain on track to complete our first commercial driverless public rides and deliveries by the end of the year. This will begin at limited scale initially and ramp up as we produce more vehicles. Our current status is that our mapping systems worked as expected, and we've started supervised testing in Austin with more than a dozen vehicles. As we had hoped, we're finding that most of our AV systems generalize well to new markets.”
