He mentioned that G.M. has resolved production challenges in battery pack manufacturing and is set to increase output.

G.M. projects that its electric cars and trucks will begin generating profits in the second half of this year. The company plans to introduce new electric vehicles utilizing the innovative Ultium batteries, such as the GMC Sierra pickup truck with a range of 440 miles and the Chevrolet Equinox SUV priced at $34,995 with a range of up to 319 miles.

G.M. achieved all of its profit in North America during the first quarter but reported losses in other regions, including a $106 million loss in China. Despite challenges, G.M. remains focused on expanding its electric vehicle portfolio and strengthening its position in the global automotive market.
