Earlier this month, General Motors pulled the sheets on the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV in conjunction with the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), revealing an all-new, all-electric version of the popular pickup. We’ve covered quite a bit about the battery-driven truck thus far, but now, we’re asking this – what do you want to know about the new Chevy Silverado EV?
Unlike the GMC Hummer EV, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is focused on the basics of the pickup truck segment, rather than performance or off-road prowess. So far, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is exclusively available in a Crew Cab body style with 5-foot, 11-inch bed. Two trims are on offer, including the well-equipped RST and the fleet-oriented WT trim.
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV features unique styling optimized for aerodynamic performance and range, as well as a large glass roof. RST trims are standard with 24-inch wheels, a first for production vehicles.
The RST model also features a 17-inch diagonal LCD freeform infotainment screen, 11-inch diagonal driver instrument display, and a new head-up display, as well as standard Super Cruise.
The RST First Edition features a dual-motor e4WD system producing 664 horsepower and 780 pound-feet of torque with the available Wide Open Watts Mode, sending it to 60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds. The WT produces 510 horsepower and 615 pound-feet of torque, as well as offers 8,000 pounds of towing and 1,200 pounds of payload.
Both trims have a maximum range estimated of 400 miles. DC fast-charge capabilities provide upwards of 100 miles of range in 10 minutes. GM Authority previously compared the Chevy Silverado EV to the F-150 Lightning, so check that out for more info.
The Chevy Silverado EV WT trim will be the first to arrive in the spring of 2023, starting at just under $40,000. The RST First Edition will follow, priced at $105,000. Further trims will arrive afterwards, including the off-roader Trail Boss model. Reservations are open now, although reservations for the RST First Edition filled in a mere 12 minutes.
