After decades of manufacturing, it has been claimed that General Motors has discontinued the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savanna. The information was obtained via Autoweek, which cited an anonymous source. According to the article, the American Big Body Van Twin will be taken out of production after the model year 2025.
Chevy Express & GMC Savanna Production Ends in 2025
The Chevrolet Express and the GMC Sabana may both be traced back to the 1970s in terms of their fundamentally box-shaped architecture. In the 1990s, a completely new model was introduced, and in 2003, the van had its most recent significant upgrade.
It goes without saying that both vans are pretty overdue to be replaced, which is something that will take place on the 2026 model in the form of battery-powered electric vans.
When considering the portfolio offered by GM, the BrightDrop Zevo series stands out as the model that could serve as the basis for the next generation of electric vans.
The commercial electric vehicle brand Bright Drop was introduced by GM a year ago. The Zevo 600 and the Zevo 400 are also part of the lineup. The shipment of Zevo 600 units to be added to the fleet was recently initiated by FedEx. The corporation has committed to utilizing just electricity by the year 2040.
It is anticipated that future electric vans produced by Chevy and GMC will be constructed on platforms designed specifically for electric vehicles, in contrast to the Ford E Transport, which is still derived from ICE-powered transit. The first generation of GM’s Ultrium battery.
Although the BrightDrop EV can shed some light on the subject, it is still unclear how many rumored forthcoming electric vans will actually be produced. The Zevo 600 has a range of 250 miles and can hold more than 600 cubic feet of stuff inside of it. It is reasonable to anticipate that the Chevrolet and General Motors variants will be less spacious than the Bright Drop model.
In the coming years, you will learn more about this new development, but for the time being, let’s raise a glass to the Chevrolet Express and the General Motors Sabana.
