Chevrolet Announces Electric Silverado Pickup Truck
Apr 7th, 2021
As part of GM’s ambitious plan to release 30 new electric vehicle models by the year 2025, Chevrolet has announced an all-electric Silverado pickup truck is on the way.
This exciting new truck will be built in Detroit, Michigan at Factory Zero, the same production facility as the GMC Hummer EV. This Silverado electric pickup will also feature a new ground-up design meant to get the most out of GM’s Ultium battery technology. GM also confirmed the new electric Silverado will feature range of more than 400 miles on a single charge (over 640 km), a truly impressive stat for a pickup truck.
General Motors President Mark Reuss had this to say about the upcoming electric truck and GM’s commitment to EVs: “The vehicles coming from Factory Zero will change the world, and how the world views electric vehicles. The GMC Hummer EV SUV joins its stablemate in the realm of true supertrucks, and Chevrolet will take everything Chevy’s loyal truck buyers love about Silverado – and more – and put it into an electric pickup that will delight retail and commercial customers alike.”
Additional information remains scarce at this point, with a teaser video released but few other details. The video depicts a Silverado logo with a blue “E”, confirming the vehicle’s electric status but does not reveal the vehicle’s styling or specs. We do know, however, that the truck will be available in both retail and fleet applications.
We look forward to seeing the new electric Silverado as well as GM’s other planned EVs as they continue on their path towards a full lineup of environmentally friendly, battery powered vehicles.
