Modern mobility re-imagined
A preview vision of the future where personal air travel is possible, the single-seat Cadillac Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL personal drone) concept was unveiled at CES. Travelling rooftop to rooftop at speed up to 90 kilometers per hour, the VTOL offers customers the luxury of more time for what they want to do while contributing zero congestion to the world around them.
Together, this portfolio of future product and design and technology concepts demonstrates how GM is approaching this new chapter in its history, delivering experiences that reflect the possibilities and probabilities of future transportation.
As a result, the company unveiled a new brand identity, along with a new brand campaign, as GM transforms itself to deliver on a vision that creates a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion.
The change to the logo is the most significant in the past 50 years. As GM amplifies its EV message, the revitalized brand identity is designed for a digital-first environment. The new logo builds on a strong heritage while bringing a more modern and vibrant look to GM’s familiar blue square. The new brand identity extends to technology brands including Ultium. The team of GM designers tasked with creating the new logo considered how to balance the history and trust inherent to the existing design with GM’s vision for the future.
