GM launches BrightDrop; aims to electrify last-mile delivery. The company’s electric light commercial vehicle, the EV600, six hundred cubic feet of space, will be on roads in late 2021 led by FedEx’s fleet.



General Motors (GM) revealed its launch of BrightDrop last week at CES 2021. The new company, which will offer electric first-to-last-mile products, software and services, aims to help businesses lower costs, maximize productivity, improve employee safety and freight security, and support overall sustainability efforts.

GM estimates that by 2025, the combined market opportunity for parcel, food delivery and reverse logistics in the U.S. will be over $850 billion. To take this hypothesis to the test, FedEx will be the first fleet to take the BrightDrop EV600 on the road and will be receiving their vehicles later this year.

Powered by the Ultium battery system, the EV600 is targeted to have an estimated range of up to 250 miles on a full charge. Peak charge rate of up to 170 miles of EV range per hour via 120kW DC fast charging. Over 600 cubic feet of cargo area are some of the new exciting features
