As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV rides on the GM BT1 platform, which is also utilized by the GMC Sierra EV. Notably, the GMC Hummer EV Pickup and GMC Hummer EV SUV ride on the wide-body variant of the same vehicle platform. For motivation, GM Ultium batteries are paired with GM Ultium Drive motors, and provide up to 400 miles of range on a single charge.
