GM creates new EV VP role, appoints Chevy Bolt boss Pam Fletcher

She'll oversee the launch of more than 20 EVs by 2023.

General Motors is finding some success with the Chevy Bolt EV, which was launched under the guidance of Pamela Fletcher as the company's Chief Engineer of Electrified Vehicles. In fact, the Bolt has outsold the Chevy Volt for three months in a row, with 2,632 units going to customers in September. With its growing EV business, GM saw fit to create a new role, Vice President of Global Electric Vehicle Programs, and appoint Fletcher to the position.

In her new role, Fletcher will oversee the launch of every GM electric vehicle. The company has plans to introduce more than 20 all-electric cars around the world by 2023. "Nobody is more prepared to help us lead the way to a zero emissions future than Pam Fletcher," said Doug Parks, GM's Vice President of Autonomous and Electric Vehicle Programs, to whom Fletcher will report. "Under Pam's leadership, GM will continue to deliver electric vehicles that delight our customers and exceed their expectations."

In addition to the Chevy Bolt, Fletcher led the teams launching the second-generation Volt, the Chevy Spark EV and the Cadillac ELR.
