General Motors reinvents its Silverado pickup: now it's electric

General Motors introduced an electric Silverado pickup, the reinvention of the brand's best-selling product, which provides the power and capacity expected in the pickups of its Chevrolet brand.

The American manufacturer reported that the vehicle has been developed from scratch as a fully electric pickup on the Ultium EV platform.

"Chevrolet has constantly revolutionized the Silverado brand to make it the powerhouse it is today," said Steve Hill, Chevrolet Vice President. "The Ultium platform is a critical enabler of next-level pickup performance for both fleets and retail customers, whether they drive a Silverado or are considering purchasing a pickup for the first time."

At its launch, the Chevrolet Silverado EV will be available in two configurations: RST First Edition and the fleet-oriented Work Truck (WT) model. Each will offer a full suite of standard and optional security technologies.

Both configurations have public fast charging capacity of up to 350kW, which allows adding approximately 160 km of autonomy range in 10 minutes, according to GM estimates.

When combined with the available power bar accessory, the pickup offers up to 10 outlets for myriad recreational or work needs.

Chevrolet Silverado EV is also capable of charging another electric vehicle using the available charging cable, sharing its power when required.
