GM Plans to Sell Cadillac and Hummer EVs in Europe: Report
General Motors (GM) is looking to bring some of its electric vehicles (EVs) to Europe, featuring a few different battery-electric vehicles from its lineup.
GM plans to bring the Cadillac Lyriq to Europe, and the automaker is also considering selling the GMC Hummer on the continent, according to sources familiar with the topic detailed in a report from Automotive News.
The move comes just a few years after GM sold off its mass-market Open and Vauxhall brands in 2017 to the company now known as Stellantis.
The sources, who asked not to be identified due to the confidential nature of the matters, also said GM could start importing the Cadillac Lyriq.

At the present time, GM only sells luxury vehicles in Europe, including the Corvette sports car, and the automaker only sells a small amount.
Cadillac plans to electrify its entire lineup by 2030, and the move to bring EVs to Europe could also help the company avoid tough emissions standards in the European Union — which played a major role in the automaker’s decision to sell Opel and Vauxhall.
GMC’s fully-electric Hummer has already begun delivering in the U.S., after its early reservations surpassed 65,000 in March.
