    General Motors reveals three new Ultium motors for future EVs

    General Motors Co. President Mark Reuss revealed three new motors for the automaker’s Ultium-based electric vehicles Tuesday at the 2021 Mackinac Policy Conference.

    They are a 180-kilowatt front-drive motor, a 255-kW rear and front-drive motor, and a 62-kW all-wheel-drive assist motor.

    “Twenty years of electric drive system development and more than 100 years of high-volume vehicle engineering are helping GM pivot quickly from conventional vehicles to EVs,” Reuss said at the conference sponsored by the Detroit Regional Chamber. “Our vertical integration in this space, encompassing both hardware and software, helps give us control over our own destiny and a significant competitive advantage.”

    The motors can be used on a “wide spectrum of vehicle types, from performance cars to work trucks,” GM said.

    GM engineers also have developed software for Ultium Drive’s motor controllers, which GM says is key to delivering “the propulsion needs of various vehicle types with a minimal set of components.”
