The new 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV is ready to take the electric pickup truck segment by storm with its attractive look and amazing range of up to 400 miles. According to the latest news, the forthcoming truck will arrive sometime next year, sharing its electric powertrain with the GMC Hummer EV.
So, it will come with the same dual electric motor setup that provides up to 664 hp. It also has a large battery pack that supports DC fast-charging and juices the battery with 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes. Chevrolet hasn’t released full specs and information about the forthcoming pickup, but as we can see, the Ford F-150 Lightning will get real competition.
2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV Design
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV looks futuristic, despite the fact that it lacks a traditional grille. Anyway, this truck still dominates in the front. It is worth mentioning that the new pickup is proportionally the same as Ford’s F-150 Lightning truck. Even though the Silverado EV looks radically different because it rides on a new Ultium platform using an independent front and rear suspension.
The RST is the most popular and expensive model, which includes tow/haul mode, trailer hitch provisions, an integrated trailer brake controller, and the new Advanced Trailering System.
The new 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV pickup truck looks really futuristic and spacious inside. All models will reportedly come with a digital dashboard and an 11.0-inch infotainment touchscreen. There is also a standard 8.0-inch digital gauge display. However, if you decide to go for the RST variant, you’ll get an even larger 17.0-inch infotainment screen and an 11.0-inch gauge display. Unfortunately, Chevrolet hasn’t released any information yet on what will be included with the standard WT model.
Anyway, we expect Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to be standard, with in-dash navigation, SiriusXM satellite radio, and an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot. The RST model will definitely separate from other trims thanks to many premium materials. This model also comes with a fixed glass roof and black-and-white two-tone leather upholstery.
2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV Motor Specs
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV is an all-electric pickup truck that will share the same electric powertrain as the recently revealed GMC Hummer EV. However, unlike the GMC Hummer EV, which comes with up to three electric motors, the Silverado EV will use two electric motors, providing all-wheel drive as standard. The top-spec RST is the most powerful Silverado, which is expected to produce at least 664 hp, while the base WT is around 510 hp.
Chevrolet claims the Silverado EV’s maximum towing capacity will be 10,000 pounds for the RST model. On the other hand, choosing the base WT towing is 8000 pounds. Chevrolet also revealed that we can expect a model with a 20,000-pound towing capacity to eventually join the lineup. DC fast charging capability is standard, and the company claims that 100 miles of range can be done in just 10 minutes at a public DC charging station. The maximum range of the EV Silverado is 400 miles on a single charge.
