Chevrolet Confirms Silverado EV, 650 km Range

Electric Chevy

  • Electric Silverado coming, no word when

  • Expect 650 km range from Ultium power


Chevrolet has just confirmed the Silverado electric pickup is coming. A full-sizer that will be designed as an EV, rather than converting a gas version, and that will be built at the same plant that will be home to the GMC Hummer EV.

For now, it’s called the Chevrolet Silverado electric, though it seems like a more EV-specific name will come along eventually, even if it’s just Silverado EV. General Motors President Mark Reuss confirmed the truck today and said that it will be built at the new Factory Zero assembly plant near Detroit that will also be home to the GMC Hummer EVs.

The announcement said that the Silverado electric pickup “is designed from the ground up to be an EV, harnessing the best of the Ultium Platform and Silverado’s proven capability.” Likely that means the same platform as the Hummer EV but sized up to allow it to be a proper full-size pickup.

400 miles (648 km) is the range estimate for the pickup from Chevrolet, meaning that the larger full-size truck also likely has room for more of GM’s Ultium battery cells. The brand said it expects big demand for the truck, and it will be offered to retail and fleet customers.

The announcement makes GM the first of the Detroit Three to provide a range estimate for an electric full-size pickup. Ford hasn’t yet said for the planned F-150 EV, and we haven’t heard anything about a Ram EV yet. No word on when the truck could go on sale, but based on the Hummer EV timeline, expect sometime in late 2023 or 2024.
