GM Has 150,000 Chevy Silverado EV Reservations23
Back in February, GM revealed that it had racked up an impressive 110,000 reservations for the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV. That number has now grown to over 150,000 reservations, the automaker confirmed in its Q2 2022 earnings report, signalling strong demand for the automaker’s first battery-electric pickup truck.
GM’s Q2 earning report confirmed the Chevy Silverado EV has 150,00 reservations “and growing,” with 65 percent of those orders being from so-called “conquest,” customers, which refers to buyers that have never purchased or owned a Chevy vehicle in the past. The electrified Silverado is also attracting buyers from different parts of the country, with 70 percent of reservations coming from customers that live on either the east or west coast.
Some of these reservations are of course coming from fleet operators, as the first Chevy Silverado EV model to hit the market will be the entry-level Work Truck (WT) trim level. Barra said in February that it has received orders from around 240 individual fleet operators. The second Silverado EV trim level to arrive will be the sporty RST First Edition, followed by other trim levels like the off-road-ready Trail Boss.
Prices for the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV start at a reasonable $39,900 for the WT, however adding options can quickly drive the price of the vehicle up, with the loaded RST First Edition model priced from $105,000. The Silverado EV taps GM’s dedicated BT1 architecture, with WT models featuring a dual-motor powertrain good for 510 horsepower and 615 pound-feet of torque. The RST First Edition is more powerful, producing an impressive 664 horsepower and 780 pound-feet of torque.
While GM is likely pleased with the number of reservations that it has received for the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV thus far, the automaker won’t be counting its chickens before they hatch. A recent study conducted by Recurrent indicated that only a small percentage of Silverado EV reservation holders intend to actually purchase the vehicle, with many of these individuals being speculators that are holding reservations for multiple future EV models.

- Sweepstakes Of The Month: Win a 2023 Corvette Z06 Convertible. Details here.
That’s great and all, but let’s see an article about that Corvette E-Ray.
At least one guy doesn’t want to hear about it.
It’s fine now. They finally reported on the E-Ray burning to the ground.
How many of these reservations were from a 14 year old pretending to be somebody else?
Probably zero. Not a lot of 14 year olds are going to throw away $100 just for kicks.
How many of these “reservations” will actually become sales? I foresee a lot of flipping reservations-for-profit coming down the road.
Making it an Avalanche will be a mistake in my opinion. Not to mention how far behind they are in actually bringing it to market. Now I liked the Avalanche and owned one, but don’t make that the future of the Silverado nameplate. It won’t work out well.
By the time the Silverado EV begins deliveries, the Ford F-150 Lightning probably have sold 150,000 trucks.
The Cybertruck will even be on the road.
The Hummer EV is on the road.
Why are there more GM trolls on GMA than GM supporters? General Motors must be doing something right to have so many haters flicking to all of their material. It’s ridiculous. These guys are PRESSED. Lol.
They’re mad the Silverado EV has this many reservations so they try to discredit the actual reservations. Absolutely hilarious. Ford is behind, that’s why they’re now rushing to develop a second generation of the inferior and underwhelming Lightning which is nothing but a rebadged ICE Ford F-150 lined with batteries.
149,000 of them work for GM
GM employees can’t afford one.
Please just deliver my car that was ordered in April and built in June on hold waiting for chips event code 4D00
More stupid people to buy stupid vehicles powered by coal have fun sheep
Nice to see GM has 150,000 Pre Orders. Lets all remember that Most pre Orders are done by Auto enthusiasts. Wait until the general customer gets to see and driver the Silverado EV. GM needs to get Buts in seats and these will sell themselves like Teslas do. Never had anyone driver my Car and not place an order for one themselves as of yet.And they range from True Gearheads to compliance driving Camry owners who couldn’t tell you what an engine is.
GM seems to have some hits on their hands…..Hummer, Lyriq, Silverado, and Blazer.
Wait until we get to see what I would assume would be a more Bold looking pickup in the Sierra and then the Nox.
And those are just the ones that we know about. Nice to see GM making that fundamentally important shift to BEV’s to save themselves well into the Future. As a GM fan and shareholder I have never been happier and more excited for GM’s Future!!!
My biggest question moving forward to the BEV shift undertaken by GM is what will happen to the Camaro?
That is the Million Dollar question right now. Hope the name doesn’t go away again ICE or BEV GM needs a Mustang Competitor always.
I Hope GM can produce as many pick ups as It can….because here in Brazil we want It too !
