Chevy Silverado Electric Pickup on Deck to offer 400 Miles of Driving Per Charge

GM Authority is an excellent and frequently updated source for everything Chevy related and keeps us constantly informed about new releases, what types of features models will offer, and spy shots snapped of models coming soon. The brand we love so much here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis has promised to release 30 new EV models in the next four years and is now hard at work developing an all-electric Chevy Silverado pickup. 

In an official announcement released last week, GM stated that the new Chevy Silverado pickup will be built at GM’s Factory Zero Detroit-Hamtramck assembly facility in Michigan, alongside the GMC Hummer EV SUV. Customers will have their choice of both retail and fleet versions of this new electric pickup, and high demand is expected from the very Eco-conscious and eager-for-change truck buyers out there impressed by the latest advances in technology. Many reports have hinted at the fact that this new pickup may be called the Chevy Silverado E, and all of the brilliant engineers and designers behind it are thrilled with how drastically it will change the world. 

Using this new Ultium Platform in conjunction with futuristic virtual development tools and technology, GM has proudly reduced vehicle development times by nearly 50 percent, with just a 26-month finish time needed from start to finish. Earlier this winter, GM made the announcement that there were $2.2 billion in thorough upgrades for the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant to produce a vast range of brand-new all-electric fully autonomous robo taxis for urban transit. 

It’s not just the exciting task of building this new Silverado E Truck anxiously at hand: the GMC Hummer EV, GMC Hummer SUV, and the Cruise Origin will all be completed here. This Cruise Origin is on its way to full production status and is roughly the size of a traditional crossover SUV. This wonder of modern technology boasts abundant interior space, and a layout focused on passenger comfort. In the works for a total of more than three years, it will truly make history with its core AV software that can finally best an average human driver in terms of safety and decision-making on the everyday road. 

Full-sized trucks are designed exclusively for hard work, and the pushing, hauling and towing that comes as a part of everyday duties. It has already been learned over decades that full-sized truck capacity and fuel efficiency are not too synonymous, and many Silverado fans will be thrilled to see a few changes to the interior as well. Not all of these new models will be destined for suburbia, and we are certain that when this new electric Silverado rears fully to life, it will be firmly as capable as many other mud-sloshing, creek-crossing, bale hauling rigs found across the nation!
