General Motors is building an electric car, but not for the Earth. GM to partner with Lockheed Martin to create a new rover for NASA

One of General Motors’ next electric vehicles will be the lunar rover. The company has teamed up with Lockheed Martin to create the next generation of vehicles to transport people on the moon. Yes, we are not talking about an autonomous rover, but about a full-fledged vehicle. Just for the moon.

The project is deployed as part of the NASA Artemis program, which implies the return of the United States to the moon in the coming years.

In the case of General Motors, it’s not just that the company is actively developing the electric car business. At one time, General Motors participated in the creation of the Lunar Rover rover, which was used to move on the moon as part of the Apollo 15, 16, 17 missions. In addition, General Motors was the designer and creator of inertial guidance and navigation systems for the entire Apollo Moon program.

At the same time, the new device, which will be used by NASA, will have to be able to travel much more than the 7-8 km that Lunar Rover covered at one time.
