GM’s brand of next-generation EV batteries, drive units and platform.
- Ultium battery cells: Are expected to offer a GM-estimated driving range of 300+2 miles on a full charge. These cells can be arranged in different combinations of flexible modules and battery packs to provide the energy needed for every segment on the road today and some that don’t even exist at present.
- Ultium packs: Can be formed from 6, 8, 10 or 12 modules, or up to 24 modules from two double-stacked Ultium battery packs. GM’s ability to stack long pouch cells vertically or horizontally in modules is unique in the industry. It allows for a lower cabin floor where it matters most, yielding more interior room than comparable EVs that use cylindrical cells in battery packs with a uniform height.
