Model Preview

Chevrolet has decided to join the wave of upcoming electric trucks and announced that they are releasing an all-electric version of the Silverado. As the first electric truck in their lineup, the Silverado EV is slated to debut on January 5th at CES 2022. Not much is known about the pickup, but some details about the design and specs have been released.

Both fleet and retail versions are being made available, which means consumers should have a multitude of options to choose from. On the retail versions comes the highlighted, segment-leading feature: a fixed-glass roof. This marks the first time GM uses such a design element on a full-size pickup truck. The fixed-glass roof offers greater visibility, increased headroom, and an overall feeling of spaciousness for passengers.

The Silverado EV has been confirmed to be powered by GM’s Ultium batteries. This gives the vehicle an estimated range of more than 400 miles when fully charged. Also confirmed is the use of Four-Wheel Steer. As the name suggests, this allows the car to steer all four wheels at once, a feature that improves both turning and stability.

No new safety features have been announced, but there may be some in the works that have yet to be revealed.

Pricing & Release Date

As we don’t know whether or not this vehicle will be a 2022 or 2023 model, we don’t have an idea of the release date yet. We’ll have to wait and see if an official answer comes when Chevrolet debuts it on January 5th.

Just like the release date, we can’t say for certain what the pricing on this new model will be. Given all the new features, and how it’s an EV, it’s safe to assume that it will likely be pricier than the current Silverado, which ranges from $30,995 to $54,995 depending on the trim.

For anyone looking to save some money on this EV pickup truck, it’s important to note that GM is not currently eligible for a federal EV tax credit, but the government is considering expanding its eligibility.

The Silverado EV is expected to be in high demand, but the Ford F-150 Lightning and Tesla Cybertruck are likely to be among key competitors as more electric trucks hit the market.

Stay tuned for more updates as they become available to us.
