One of the many features of the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV that General Motors has been emphasizing is the offboard power station, which allows the user to access the all-electric capabilities of properly equipped Silverado EV units. Now, a new video has been released that highlights the utility of the offboard power station.
In a video posted online, General Motors outlines a few standout features of the Silverado EV’s charging capabilities, including:
- Five power outlets located in the truck bed
- Four 120V / 20-amp
- One 240V / 30-amp
- One power outlet in the eTrunk and another in the cabin
- Both 120V / 20-amp
- Standard 7.2 kW of power
- Available 3.0 kW accessory bar
- Increased output to 10.2 kW of power
- Adds two power outlets
Some additional details surrounding the charging capabilities of the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV 4WT include a usable battery capacity in the 205 kWh to 212 kWh range, and the fact that the outlets in the truck bed share circuits with the eTrunk and cabin. In addition, The General estimates that properly equipped Silverado EV units can power essential items in the average home for up to 21 days in the case of an outage.
As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV rides on the narrow-body variant of 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 an EPA-certified 450 miles of range on a single charge.
