The upcoming Chevy Silverado electric pickup truck will be unveiled at CES 2022 (Consumer Electronics Show) during the opening keynote delivered by General Motors CEO Mary Barra on Wednesday, January 5th, 2022.
In addition to the reveal, the brand has also confirmed that the Silverado electric pickup will feature an available segment-leading fixed-glass roof for retail models, offering expansive visibility, increased headroom, and an enhanced experience of spaciousness for both front and rear passengers. Notably, this is the first application of an available fixed-glass roof on a GM pickup in the full-size truck segment.
In addition to the fixed-glass roof, Chevrolet has previously confirmed the availability of four-wheel steering, a chassis feature that enables the vehicle to steer all four wheels. In a statement, Chevy said the electric Silverado’s available four-wheel steering system will give the truck “increased agility and tighter turning radius at low speeds, improved handling and stability at higher speeds, as well as great trailering dynamics.”
The electric Silverado will also offer customers a GM-estimated range of more than 400 miles on a full charge. Like all next-gen EVs, the Chevy Silverado electric pickup truck will utilize Ultium components, including Ultium batteries and Ultium drive motors.
In addition to four-wheel steering, Chevy also confirmed this week the electric Silverado will have available 24-inch wheels. Back in 2019, GM design chief Michael Simcoe revealed the automaker was moving towards having 24-inch and even 26-inch wheels on some of its production vehicles in a bid to make its products more eye-catching and appealing.
“Designed as an EV from the ground up, the Silverado electric pickup harnesses the best of the Ultium Platform and Silverado’s proven capability,” the automaker said in a statement. “The fleet and retail versions of the electric Silverado will offer customers a variety of options and are expected to be in high demand.”
