We’re electrifying the automotive industry, engineering EVs with purpose built, ground-up design, powered by our Ultium Platform1 technology. And because entertainment has a huge impact on culture, Netflix is joining the movement by increasing the presence of EVs in some of their original content. GM and Netflix are joining forces to give EVs the stage they deserve, reflecting society’s increasing excitement about an all-electric future.
