On a conference call with analysts, GM CEO Mary Barra said the company is on track to launch a new electric car architecture “before 2020,” the year Ford is expected to roll out a new battery-powered vehicle, along with a new infotainment system that has over-the-air update capability, Automotive News reports.

GM’s latest all-electric model, the Chevrolet Bolt, has been slowly rolled out across the country this year, and should be available nationwide in August. Less than 8,000 were sold through the first six months of 2017 and production has been reduce due to a growth in inventory on dealer lots.

The $36,995 Bolt was the first “affordable” electric car with a driving range of over 200 miles per charge, but it will be joined by the $35,000 Tesla Model 3 when deliveries begin on July 28.
