General Motors unveiled the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV in conjunction with the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month, revealing a brand-new, all-electric version of the popular pickup. In addition to an electric powertrain, the new Silverado EV also debuts new styling, and now, we’re looking over a set of battery-driven Chevy truck sketches from GM Design.
Recently posted to the GM Design Instagram feed (@generalmotorsdesign), the sketches look quite a bit like the production fascia for the new 2024 Chevy Silverado EV. The future Chevy truck design incorporates a long horizontal lighting strip, linking signature lighting elements in the upper corners with a prominent light bar across the middle of the grille. The Chevy Bow Tie badge is placed high and center, while additional lighting elements can be found lower in the grille.
As for the grille itself, this future Chevy truck design keeps most of the fascia blocked off. Unlike internal combustion-powered vehicles, all-electric vehicles don’t necessarily need a ton of fresh airflow to keep mechanical components cool. Rather, the fascia is blocked off the reduce aerodynamic drag and increase average range-per-charge.
Additional future Chevy truck design sketches show the sides and rear of the vehicle, including oversized wheels and thin tires, as expected of a concept. Notably, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is set to become the first production vehicle to wear 24-inch wheels right from the factory, a trend that was predicted by GM design chief Michael Simcoe back in 2019. According to Simcoe, 24-inchers, and even 26-inch wheels are coming, continuing the plus-sized wheel style to new extremes.
Naturally, these concepts are a whole other level, exaggerating the styling elements for maximum visual impact. Nevertheless, the look does well to show where the new 2024 Chevy Silverado EV came from in terms of aesthetic.
