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.
