Earlier this week, General Motors confirmed that it was developing a new all-electric iteration of the Chevy Silverado pickup truck, resulting in a flurry of interest among fans. The question is – what will it be called?
As GM Authority covered previously, one possible name for the upcoming all-electric Chevy Silverado is “Silverado E.” Along with confirmation of the all-electric pickup’s development, General Motors also released a new teaser video that shows the Silverado nameplate against a shadowy background. As the camera pulls back to reveal the entire nameplate, the “E” in the name is isolated with a blue glint. As the rest of the background fades, the “E” remains highlighted in blue.
Further evidence that General Motors may call the all-electric Chevy Silverado the Silverado E comes from the teaser image file name – “Chevrolet-Silverado-E-Teaser.”
However, Silverado E isn’t the only possibility here. A few others include Silverado EV, or possibly even Silverado Electric.
At this point it’s unclear what General Motors will end up naming the all-electric Chevy Silverado. Details on the battery-driven pickup are still few and far between, although we do know that it will offer upwards of 400 miles of range per charge, with GM’s Ultium technology under the skin. We also know it will boast a ground-up design specifically built for all-electric power, with both retail and fleet versions offered to customers.
When it finally hits production, the new all-electric Chevy Silverado will be built at GM’s Factory Zero facility in Michigan. The plant was previously known as Detroit-Hamtramck, and received $2.2 billion in upgrades earlier this year. Factory Zero will also produce the new GMC Hummer EV pickup, the GMC Hummer EV SUV, and the Cruise Origin autonomous taxi.
