    General Motors plans to go 100 percent electric, the Detroit automaker announced Monday.

    "General Motors believes in an all-electric future," said Executive Vice President Mark Reuss. "Although that future won't happen overnight, GM is committed to driving increased usage and acceptance of electric vehicles through no-compromise solutions that meet our customers' needs."

    A number of auto manufacturers have recently announced plans to "electrify" their product lines. But GM said its promise takes this commitment a step further, NBC News reported.

    GM currently offers one extended-range electric vehicle, the Chevrolet Bolt EV, but will add two others within 18 months, Reuss said, with "at least 20" to be in the line-up by 2023.
