GM is launching a brand-new all-electric variant for the Chevy Silverado pickup, offering models suited for both retail customers and fleet customers. Now, production of the fleet-oriented 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Work Truck is officially underway. Production takes place at the GM Factory Zero plant in Michigan, previously known as the GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant.
Production of the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Work Truck recently began, with the 4WT trim level being the first rolling off the line. These units are equipped with the biggest battery pack, containing 24 modules. Although the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Work Truck will also be available to retail buyers, the first examples produced will only be offered to fleet customers, at least for now.
Despite the Work Truck naming conventions, the 3WT and 4WT are definitely not the most barebones equipment groups that will be offered. To the contrary, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV 3WT and 4WT are equipped with a variety of notable features, including highlights like dual-zone automatic climate control, an eight-inch Driver Information Center, a six-speaker audio system, an 11-inch touchscreen in the dash, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, and more.
With regard to the powertrain, the feature list includes GM’s Ultium battery technology, as well as a dual-motor Ultium Drive system with torque vectoring and e4WD, with one drive motor mounted up front and one drive motor mounted in the rear. Four-wheel independent suspension with premium ride and handling is also standard. The GM BT1 platform provides the underpinnings.
Late last month, estimated range-per-charge figures for the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV 4WT were announced, with EPA estimates set at 450 miles, well above the 400 miles of range estimated when the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV was initially announced.
Looking ahead, the Chevy Silverado EV RST First Edition is expected to roll off the line this fall for retail customers.
