Chevrolet has just revealed the Silverado EV, the latest addition to GM’s Ultium-powered EV lineup, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Wednesday. #ces2022
The fully electric pickup truck has a max range of up to 640 km (400 miles) on a charge, 664 hp with more than 780 lb-ft of torque in its Wide Open Watts Mode, DC charging up to 350kW, 10.2 kW of on-board power, and 10,000 lbs of towing capacity with up to 1,300 pounds of payload on some variants.
Chevrolet plans to release the flagship “RST First Edition” initially, which includes features like four-wheel steering, adaptive air suspension, Super Cruise, semi-autonomous driving and a 17-inch LCD infotainment screen….and the return of the Midgate.
With mid and tailgates closed, the truck has a six-foot box. Open the mid-gate, and it will take nine feet, and with the mid-gate open and tailgate open to the load stop position, there is just shy of 11 feet of length for cargo.
Production of the Silverado EV is projected to get underway in early 2023 and the company will debut a “WT” model with the longest-range battery in the spring of 2023.
In the fall, an “RST First Edition” model will then enter production and debut with an MSRP of over $105,000 (U.S.), while other trim levels will range between $50,000 and $80,000 (U.S.). GM will manufacture the Silverado EV at its Factory ZERO facility in Detroit, Michigan
