What is the GM Ultium Battery? 
As more and more drivers from Calgary to Cochrane and beyond are considering an electric vehicle, automakers like General Motors are amping up by further developing technologies that will make electric vehicles like the Bolt EV, Bolt EUV, and Hummer EV more accessible and affordable. The new GM EV platform features a modular battery and drive unit combinations that are flexible enough to work with a wide range of cars, crossovers, SUVs, trucks, and commercial vehicles. A key part of these advancements is the GM Ultium battery, which can deliver more energy density with lower projected costs and increased range.

Ultium EV Battery Specs
The GM Ultium battery is made up of flat cell pouches that can be stacked to improve efficiency, power, and range. Review the Ultium EV battery specs below to see how it will enhance your Okotoks-area driving experience:
  • Unlike traditional car batteries, the GM Ultium EV battery employs high-energy pouch cells that have a flat shape. This modular design allows GM engineers to optimize energy density and vehicle layout.
  • The GM Ultium battery options scale from 50 kilowatt-hours to over 200 kWh, which will enable a GM-estimated range of 600 kilometres or more on a full charge.
  • Ultium EV battery cells feature a state-of-the-art Nickel Cobalt Manganese Aluminium (NCMA) chemistry, designed to reduce the cobalt content by more than 70 percent.
  • Stackable battery pouch cells enable flexible engineering and a more comfortable ride while adding 22 kWh of energy storage.
  • Since the GM Ultium EV battery's electronic components are embedded within the modules, it can eliminate 80 percent of the battery pack wiring compared to conventional car batteries.
  • Ultium packs are flexible enough to contain multiple combinations of modules to custom-tailor energy and range requirements. Your Buick, Cadillac, GMC, or Chevy Ultium battery pack can house 6, 8, 10, 12, or up to 24 modules depending on what the vehicle type requires.
