GM’s global pension was underfunded by $5.1 billion as of Dec. 31, 2021
GM’s global pension was underfunded by $5.1 billion as of December. This is a large amount of money, but the company says that it is likely to be covered by operating profits in the future. GM management said it is unlikely to have to make any major contributions in the near term, but the government may need to step in if the carmaker goes under.
The company’s financial head, Paul Jacobson, said tailwinds in 2023 would include lower pension income, less cost of commodity, and an increase in clean energy credits. But he also said he expected higher gas prices to be a problem for GM, which relies heavily on light trucks.
The government has been involved in the reorganization process, which is designed to make GM viable for the long term. A bankruptcy judge will need to approve the restructuring plan. This will allow the debt to be reduced and enable the firm to become profitable. The plan is expected to cover 650,000 GM workers.
GM’s EV business will have EBIT margins in the low to mid-single digits in 2025
GM’s EV business is expected to have low to mid-single-digit EBIT margins by the end of 2025, according to the company’s executive team. The company also has a long-term goal of producing 2 million electric vehicles globally by 2025. In addition, it has invested in a new vehicle platform, Ultium, which enables it to produce EVs at scale.
GM plans to invest about $35 billion in EV and autonomous vehicle technology over the next decade. By the middle of the next decade, GM expects to have a production capacity of one million EVs in North America. It will also have two to three additional cell plants in the U.S. that will be run in conjunction with its joint venture with Toyota.
As a result, GM said it is confident it can fund $2 billion in EV investments per year. However, it declined to provide pricing and profitability estimates for its current EV offerings.

GM’s EV deliveries begin to be realized
GM has announced that its EV deliveries will begin to ramp up in 2023, with several competitive EVs coming to the market soon. The automaker has made a commitment to invest $27 billion in EV development over the next four years. The company plans to produce dozens of battery-powered vehicles, with the first of those to roll off the assembly line in 2023.
In addition to these vehicles, General Motors also plans to build a new battery cell manufacturing plant in the U.S. and has announced a partnership with Honda that will share engineering and technology. The two companies will also share manufacturing facilities.
Aside from the Chevy Bolt, GM’s EV offerings will include the Hummer EV, the electric GMC Sierra Denali, and the GMC Canyon BEV mid-size pickup. In addition, the company has plans to launch the Chevrolet Equinox EV, an affordable compact SUV, and the Hummer EV3X. These models are expected to have electric driving ranges of up to 329 miles.
GM’s hourly labor cost is about $5 billion compared with $16 billion
GM’s hourly labor cost in the United States is about $5 billion compared with the $16 billion it spent in 2005 before the company filed for bankruptcy. The automaker is spending more than foreign rivals such as Toyota and Ford, according to the Center for Automotive Research.
GM has a number of strategies to reduce its labor costs. One is to change the composition of its workforce. The company wants to hire more temporary workers or temps. The automaker would like to get 20-25 percent of its workforce to be temps. This would bring a lot of labor cost savings.
Another strategy is to build electric vehicles. The automaker is planning to spend billions on these vehicles. It estimates that the margins on these vehicles will be low to mid-single digits in the early part of the decade and will grow to near-comparable margins in the late part of the decade.
