This Automaker Says Electric Pickup Trucks Aren’t Happening Yet — Here’s Why

Over the past nine years, General Motors (and its various subsidiaries) have been producing various plug-in models, including the Chevrolet Volt and Bolt EV, Cadillac ELR and CT6 Plug-in Hybrid.  And in recent months we’ve seen General Motors promise more and more electric vehicles in the near future, with plans to bring ten new electric models to market in the next few years.

But in a recent interview, GM exeuctive Mike Abelson said that while GM was planning on lots of electric vehicles in its future (and saw electric cars as mandatory not optional), GM wasn’t planning on bringing any electric pickups to market any time soon.

Why is this? Is GM against the electric car? Are naysayers right? Or is there another reason?
