To be fair to VW and GM, Ford also had a meh electric car, the Ford Focus, the only one for a long time. It also sells a few plug-in hybrids Ford Kuga and Puma in Europe. I think one is the plug-in Explorer.GM threw away what looked so promising with the Volt and the Bolt and then just sat on it. They come back with the Hummer which lets face it is a show piece but not something for us mortals. It is massive over kill.
Ford brought out the Mach E which lets face it is a great car and they are doing great at it. Follow by the F150 and making a true electric work truck. The towing is going to be an issue as range is hammered but for most everything else this is a great truck and could replace a lot of places fleet of F150's.
VW I think they are doing good things but are more meh in going electric. ID4 feels more like they are responding to diesel gate and trying. Ford on the other had goes big.
Mustang and F150 are huge names that ford is yet again showing they are serious about going Electric.
GM has plans for a huge number of electric cars but mostly for China. Its Wuling mini-EV in China is a low price city car that is the best selling electric car there. Once its Ultium battery factory is up and running, I expect to see more from GM besides the Cadillac Lyriq.
