Chevrolet unveiled the 2024 Silverado EV as the company’s major entry into the new all-electric pick-up truck segment. It’s an interesting reveal as fellow American automaker, Ford, has recently made their F-150 Lightning EV public.
The Silverado EV has a lot of positive features that may help sceptics of the EV revolution look and think twice. For one, Chevy says it can tow up to 10,000 pounds and has 400 miles of range using standard DC fast charging of up to 350kW.
The new truck was also reported to have 664 horsepower with more than 780 lb-ft of torque in available max power, with an anticipated 0-60 mph time of less than 4.5 seconds.
According to the company, the Silverado EV will be available in two configurations, an RST First Edition and a fleet-oriented WT model. Both models offer a comprehensive suite of standard and available safety technologies.
The premium flagship model include: Four-wheel steering, Automatic Adaptive Air Suspension, Multi-Flex Midgate that expands the truck’s cargo capability while maintaining seating for a rear row passenger, and Available Multi-Flex Tailgate with power release.
One notable feature that the new pick-up boasts is Trailering-capable Super Cruise 5. Chevy explained that this driver-assistance technology allows drivers to travel hands-free on more than 200,000 miles of compatible roads across the U.S. and Canada.
