The Upcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV
With electric and hybrid vehicles becoming more and more prominent—not to mention powerful—it was only a matter of time before manufacturers started offering more options. What was once the provenance of compact cars, you can now find a wide range of electricity-powered vehicles, from crossovers to SUVs and beyond. Prepared to be the most revolutionary addition to electric vehicles since they first appeared on the scene, the Chevrolet Silverado EV is bringing tough and battle-tested performance into the fold, offering exceptional capability alongside an environmentally-friendly, emissions-free drive. Read on to learn more about the upcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV, with Calgary’s source for all things Chevrolet, GMC, and Buick: Jack Carter Chev!
What we know about the Silverado EV so far
Powered by Ultium
The Chevrolet Silverado EV was designed from the ground up, in order to take advantage of General Motors’ new battery platform, the groundbreaking Ultium. Offering exceptional performance, the Ultium platform will see the Silverado EV offer a huge range alongside the kind of power you expect from a pickup. While these figures are subject to change, the engineers working on the Silverado EV estimate it will have up to a 640 kilometre range on a full charge while offering over 660 horsepower, 780 lb.-ft of torque, and a 0-100 km/h in about 4.5 seconds. That’s not just good for an electric vehicle, it’s amazing—period.
Building the Silverado EV from scratch means making a more capable pickup with a smarter design. This manifests itself in areas like the Multi-Flex Mid-Gate Tailgate with Pass-Through, capable of fitting items over 10 feet long! Likewise, the Ultium Platform means no engine under the hood—a space resulting in something never before seen in a Chevrolet truck: a trunk. Add in the all-new 4-Wheel Steer technology, and you’ve got a nimble pickup with a smaller turning radius than you could ever imagine. Add in the available 24-inch aluminum wheels, or the available panoramic fixed-glass roof, and now the Silverado EV is just showing off.
The forefront of technology
You didn’t think Chevrolet would bring all of this advanced performance technology, and then leave you hanging when it came to the rest, did you? It all starts with the Silverado EV’s Ultifi technology, an intelligent software system offering over-the-air updates, apps, and brand new features, all meant to help personalize your ride. Inside, a 17-inch diagonal free-form screen provides access to all of the smart infotainment features, accessible hands-free thanks to Google built-in. And speaking of hands-free, the available Super Cruise™ driver assistance technology means you can both travel and trailer across the 320,000 km worth of divided and mapped highways in both Canada and the United States, you guess it: hands-free.
When can you expect to see the Silverado EV on the lot?
While there is still a lot to be done and fine-tuned in regards to the Chevrolet Silverado EV, the 2024 model year truck is expected to touch down with limited availability in the Fall of 2023.
