GM is partnering with Ventec Life Systems to help increase production of ventilators

General Motors is partnering with Ventec Life Systems to help increase production of ventilators that are needed in hospitals dealing with patients who have the novel coronavirus, the companies announced Friday. In the most severe cases of COVID-19 infection, patients need the assistance of ventilators to breathe, and there are widespread concerns that the US does not have enough ventilators to meet the coming demand. 

Seattle-based Ventec is one of a handful of ventilator manufacturers in the US, according to NBC News, and already has ramped up its production. Ventec CEO Chris Kiple says the company is aiming to produce 1,000 machines per month (up from its usual 150 per month), in the next 90 days, and eventually, to produce 2,000 ventilators per month.

Ventec will rely on GM's manufacturing, logistics, and purchasing to help build more ventilators more quickly. GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra said in a statement that GM would "continue to explore ways to help in this time of crisis."

Cadillac Introduces New Celestiq Electric Sedan!

The Cadillac Celestiq will represent the ultimate expression of Cadillac design and technology, with a bold, dramatic presence, and unparalleled refinement and innovation. A concept version of the Cadillac Celestiq is expected to be shown later today during the EV Day event. We've heard the Cadillac Celestiq will have a design that closely resembles that of the Cadillac Escala concept. While the Escala also influenced the Cadillac CT5, there's still plenty of inspiration for Cadillac designers to pull from the well-received the designed study. The Celestiq will likely arrive sometime in 2023 or 2024.
Upcoming New Electric Cadillac Crossover!

The new Cadillac electric crossover will feature the brand's next-generation design language. We also hear it will feature"inspiring" driving dynamics, so we wouldn't be surprised if it's available with a powerful electric drivetrain and features sporty handling characteristics. The Cadillac Lyriq will be based on GM's new BEV3 modular electric platform and will be available in two-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive variants. The two-wheel-drive version of the crossover will likely be rear-wheel-drive, just like other electric luxury crossovers. The Lyriq will also be about the size of the Cadillac XT5 crossover, which is 189.6 inches long, 74.9 inches wide, 66.1 inches tall and has a wheelbase of 112.5 inches. The vehicle will be called the Cadillac Lyriq and will go into production in 2022 as a 2023 model year vehicle.
