Much of the conversation in the automotive industry centers around the nascent electric vehicle market, and the increased availability of EVs. However, pricing figures for all-electric vehicles remains higher than their ICE-powered counterparts, thus making it potentially difficult to purchase an EV. Now, for those who may be interested in an electric vehicle, but can’t afford new EV prices, be sure to check out this electrified 1995 GMC Sonoma pickup truck.
Currently listed for sale in Cottonwood Shores, Texas for $6,800, this particular 1995 Sonoma is the second model year of the second-generation midsizer. Despite the hydraulic truck bed, there aren’t many exterior features that distinguish this Sonoma from any other. However, under the hood and the truck bed, you’ll find electric motors and batteries.
The seller states that the pickup has been completely electrified. Following a full charge – which takes all night when connected to a 220-volt outlet – this Sonoma has a range of 40 to 45 miles, depending on how it’s driven. Top speed currently sits at 40 to 45 mph. The seller also states that a detailed owner’s manual is included.
An interesting piece of history worth noting is that this generation of GM midsize pickup truck actually featured an all-electric variant. Although exclusive only to the Sonoma’s corporate platform-mate – the Chevy S-10 – this electric truck actually had similar range ratings as this 1995 Sonoma.
Another notable detail of the S10 Electric was that it shared its powertrain with the GM EV1. This means that the electric S-10 was actually configured with a FWD drivetrain, as opposed to the RWD drivetrain of the traditional ICE-powered S-10.
So, dear reader, what do you this of the fully electric 1995 GMC Sonoma pickup? Would you consider purchasing this vehicle? Let us know in the comment sections below!
