An electric Chevrolet Silverado is expected to launch for the 2023 model year. The automaker has yet to reveal full specs and details for the new truck, but there’s still plenty we know so far.
How much power will the electric Chevrolet Silverado make?
The upcoming Silverado EV will share its platform and assembly line with the Hummer EV. It’s very likely they’ll also share a powertrain, meaning either one, two, or three electric motors depending on trim and options. All-wheel drive will probably be standard and horsepower could go as high as 1000.
How far can the Chevy Silverado EV go?
The electric Chevrolet Silverado will use GM’s new Ultium battery technology. We’ve not yet seen this technology’s potential achieved, which GM says can be scaled to produce to massive 200-kWh battery packs. According to Chevrolet, this would give the Silverado EV an incredible 400 miles of range on a single charge.
Where will the Chevy Silverado EV be made?
The new Chevy Silverado will be built at the Factory ZERO assembly plant in Detroit, an EV-only factory that received a $2.2 billion investment in January 2020. The batteries will be made in Lordstown, Ohio, at a $2.3 billion Ultium facility.
