GM also introduced SURUS - the Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure - a fuel-cell-powered, four-wheel steer concept vehicle on a heavy-duty truck frame that's driven by two electric motors.

GM has previously announced plans to make some of its future electric vehicles capable of driving themselves in robot taxi fleets.

Recent announcements of major electric-vehicle programs at several of GM's big global rivals, most notably Volkswagen AG, had left investors wondering: How and when would GM follow up its well-regarded Chevrolet Bolt EV?

In a statement released on Monday, GM confirmed that it has a slew of new electric vehicles in development. But it also said that "getting to a zero emissions future will require more than just battery-electric technology".

It's no surprise that GM, which became the first automaker to begin mass-producing an affordable long-range electric vehicle past year, appears to have an extensive electric-vehicle product-development program well underway. The two new fully-electric cars are part of GM's plan to introduce 20 new electric vehicles by 2023.

GM stock traded up about 4% in the noon hour Monday, at $42.01 in a 52-week range of $30.21 to $42.48, a new high set this morning. As for specifics, I expect that we'll learn more about the first of GM's upcoming electric vehicles over the next few months.

GM's sole EV offering is the Chevrolet Bolt with a range of 238 miles (383 km), and the automaker says it will use learnings from the 10-month-old auto as the basis for the two new EVs.

Charles Freese, GM executive director of global fuel cell business, said SURUS is designed for a "wide range of applications", including freight and emergency rescue vehicles such as ambulances and military vehicles for disaster relief efforts. Pam Fletcher, who leads GM's autonomous- and electric-vehicle development programs, said that GM is planning efforts to expand the availability of fast-recharging stations for its customers.

Newer lithium-ion batteries have drastically improved the capabilities of electrified vehicles and there are now dozens of hybrids, plug-ins and BEVs on the market, as well as three hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles.
