Sam Abuelsamid

Sam joins Leo to talk about CES and GM's keynote. Since everything was virtual, Sam didn't miss anything pertaining to electric vehicles. GM did an hour-long presentation on electric and autonomous vehicles. This included big news that they are created a business electric commercial vehicles unit called Bright Drop. Their first model is a delivery van called the EV600. A direct competitor to Rivian's delivery vans that they are developing for Amazon. 

BrightDrop will also have telematics, including OnStar, and will communicate when deliveries are being made and provide notifications to customers. Sam says that shifting delivery vans over to electric is a huge advancement that will have more impact than your average consumer doing the same with their car.
