General Motors (GM) looks to be benchmarking a variety of Tesla’s to help ramp up their EV efforts.
GM Authority spotted a Model Y undergoing GM benchmarking. The vehicle had the tell-tale small stickers at each end of the rear bumper.
The Model Y is the perfect EV for GM to benchmark. It is the same size as the Chevy Equinox EV and the Chevy Blazer EV. However, in terms of price point, the Tesla Model Y competes with the Cadillac Lyriq.
The Model Y has the following specs, which GM is benchmarking:
– 113.8-inch wheelbase
– 187-inch total length
– 75.6-inch width
– 63.9-inch height
We have also previously reported on GM benchmarking a variety of other Tesla vehicles including the Tesla Model S Plaid and the Tesla Model X. As well; the company is also testing the technology on the Tesla Model 3 sedan. This includes the smart summon feature.
Benchmarking is not a new thing in the auto industry. However, it is interesting to see GM focusing on Tesla rather than any major automakers.
