Here’s When the Chevrolet Silverado EV Will Debut

Published on October 6, 2021 in Electric by Guillaume Rivard

General Motors today confirmed the upcoming debut of the fully electric Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup. 

The event will take place at CES 2022 in Las Vegas, more specifically during the opening keynote delivered by GM Chair and CEO Mary Barra on January 5.

The company has a bit more news to share about the truck, too. The retail variant of the Silverado EV will feature an available fixed-glass roof that leads the segment in terms of size while offering increased headroom for both front and rear passengers.

We already know that the battery-powered Silverado is designed as an EV from the ground up, riding on the same Ultium platform as the GMC Hummer EV and available with Four-Wheel Steer. The latter is a trick chassis feature that enables the vehicle to steer all four wheels in order to improve handling and reduce the turning radius. A fleet variant is also planned.

As for range, GM projects the Silverado EV will be able to drive up to 640 kilometres on a full charge.

What we don’t know at this point is when sales and deliveries will begin. One thing’s for sure, though: the zero-emission Chevy pickup will launch after its most direct rival, the Ford F-150 Lightning, which offers 370-483 kilometres of range.
