Chevy has announced that an all-electric Silverado pickup truck will debut for the 2023 model year. Very little has been announced so far about the Silverado EV, but Chevy says the truck will have a General Motors-estimated range of over 400 miles on a full charge.
The Chevrolet Silverado electric truck will be made in America at the Factory ZERO assembly plant in Hamtramck, Michigan. The Silverado EV will be built using the Ultium Platform for electric vehicles, which allows battery cells to be stacked in different formations depending on the vehicle’s dimensions. Ultium batteries are designed to accommodate fast acceleration, high levels of performance, and four-wheel-drive capabilities.
Car and Driver speculates that the Silverado EV could get up to 1,000 horsepower, making it one of the most powerful trucks ever made. C&D also thinks it’s likely the Silverado EV will come standard with all-wheel drive, which means it’ll be plenty rugged, too.
Chevrolet and General Motors are committed to making all-electric vehicles the norm, and a high-powered, intelligent Silverado should be just what the doctor ordered. We can’t wait to tell you more about the all-electric Chevrolet Silverado when the details drop — and to bring it to you when it becomes available.
Until then, if you need a reliable, durable truck, look no further than Dave Kehl Chevrolet. We have the new 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 in stock and ready to test drive.
