GM pushes EV future in Super Bowl ad featuring Will Ferrell

Techstination feature for Monday, February 8, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        GM’s push into EVs….was front and center during the Super Bowl.    The automaker used a commercial featuring Will Ferrell, Kenan Thompson and Awkwafina to make American consumers laugh…and think…

“Did you know that Norway sells way more electric cars per capita than the U. S.?   Norway!    Well I won’t stand for it!”

GM’s Stu Fowle…

“If we’re successful in our part, which is launching the Ultium platform and  30 new EVs by 2025, we’ll start bringing the cost of EVs down.  We will start bringing the range up.  We’ll start bringing the charging times down.”

There are still questions about where the bulk of clean energy for charging will come from…but the push towards an EV future is well underway.
