In addition to the cars battery electric, General Motors has also confirmed to want to continue the development of hydrogen vehicles.
SURUS could be used as a zero-emissions delivery vehicle, truck or even ambulance, claim GM. Although there are ongoing investment plans for hydrogen fueling stations, the numbers are still minimal, which in turn limits the relevance of the technology to the mass market.
Like other manufacturers, GM is also thinking about the possibility to drop internal combustion engines for good, but it hasn't set a clear date for it.

The company did not confirm that the concept models would become production models, but said it would focus on the immensely popular crossover and SUV segment.
GM plans to begin producing fuel cell vehicles in 2020 at its Brownstown Battery Assembly plant south of Detroit, Autoweek reports.
EVs remain just a sliver of US sales and demand largely is regulatory-driven, but GM expects mainstream adoption of the cars soon. China, Britain and France all have plans to eventually ban gas-powered vehicles.
