The Chevrolet Silverado EV will Start Production in 2023

The Chevrolet SIlverado EV will go on sale in late 2023

  • The electric truck will be unveiled at the CES in January

  • It will be built at factory Zero, next to the Hummer EV

  • It will be built on the company’s Ultium platform

The Chevrolet Silverado EV has been teased already in preparation for its official launch at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January.

This model will be the first electric pickup for Chevrolet and only its second fully electric vehicle, while also being the second electric truck for General Motors, following the GMC Hummer EV that should reach its first customers by the end of the year.

The Silverado EV will have to wait quite a bit longer however, since it is set to enter production in 2023, with sales only beginning later in that same year.

This means it will lag behind the Ford F-150 Lightning, that should begin sales in the spring of 2022 and many other electric pickup trucks will have reached the market by then, namely the Hummer EV, the Rivian R1T and possibly the Tesla Cybertruck.

The Chevrolet Silverado EV will be the first electric light duty truck from General Motors, since the GMC Hummer EV will be classified has a heavy-duty due to its weight.

This new model will be built on the automaker’s Ultium electric vehicle platform that will first see production with the Hummer EV before underpinning new Cadillac models like the Lyriq and Celestiq.

This means the Silverado EV could be equipped with four electric motors, like the Hummer and GM claims it will have over 400 miles (644 kilometers) of range. Other details that have been confirmed are the presence of all-wheel steering and a fixed glass roof and the availability of both a consumer and a fleet version, like the Ford F-150 Lightning.

The Chevrolet Silverado EV will be built at General Motors’ new Factory Zero plant in Hammtrack, Michigan, where many new electric products will be born, including the Hummer EV and the Cruise Origin, the company’s dedicated autonomous shuttle that will operate a robotaxi service.
