With the introduction 2024 of the Chevrolet Silverado electric vehicle, Chevrolet will be the first manufacturer to enter the world of electric pickup trucks. The Silverado EV, like the GMC Hummer Electric truck kin (Chevrolet along with GMC have both been GM brands) is powered by the Ultium battery.
It is believed to be a more modernized version of the Avalanche pickup and has the possibility of a midgate pass-through to allow for more time-consuming transport.
2024 Chevy Silverado EV Design
The 2024 Silverado Electric Vehicle is an enormous and powerful electronic pickup truck. To maximize mileage, the designers had to ensure the lowest drag coefficient. The front-end layout was created to channel air into the body’s side drastically reducing the drag and turbulence, according to a press announcement from Chevrolet. “As a result, the Silverado EV WT is projected to have one of the lower drag ratios of any currently available factory full-size pickup truck.”
We got a glimpse inside the fully loaded RST version and we were amazed by the features we observed. It was equipped with a durable glass top, monochrome two-tone leather seats with red piping, and about the same space for passengers as a typical Silverado double-cab pickup truck. Instead of having a console-mounted switch the Chevrolet designers decided to go with the column-mounted stalk that provides a huge storage area beneath the instrument panel as well as middle armrests.
Its 2024 Chevy Silverado EV specs are a forthcoming electric version of the renowned Silverado pickup. It’s expected to feature an entirely electric powertrain as well as sophisticated features specifically designed for electric mobility.

These reviews will offer insights into the Silverado’s performance as well as its charging and technology for towing and overall driving experience.
The Silverado EV will have two electric motors, as opposed to that of the Chevrolet Bolt EV, which includes up to three motors. This configuration is expected to deliver an impressive acceleration, considering that Chevy claims that the highest-end RST is at a minimum of 664 horsepower, whereas the smallest WT model has 515 horsepower. All-wheel drive, as well as four-wheel steering, are offered as standard.
If you opt for the RST version will find that their vehicle is equipped with an air suspension that can be adjusted; However, a pair of massive, elegant 24-inch wheels are available. Locking differentials, massive all-terrain tires, and other elements that can be used for adventure are likely to become part of the Silverado’s suspension in the Trail Boss edition. This article will be updated with our impressions of the road when we’re able to drive the Chevy Silverado EV.
Battery and Range
The Silverado EV will utilize General Motors’ innovative Ultium battery system that can be extended to create a 200-kWh battery pack. This Silverado EV Work Truck has a recommended range of 450 miles after an empty charge, according to EPA.
Of course, the actual range will vary, especially when towing, something that the Silverado EV is capable of doing without difficulty. DC rapid charging will be as standard as well. Chevrolet claims that its accessible DC charger can provide 100 miles of capacity to the battery in only 10 minutes.
2024 Chevy Silverado EV Price and Release Date
In 2024, the Chevy Silverado electric vehicle will cost $65,000 when it is available for purchase. When the car launches in 2023’s spring, Chevrolet will do so with an RST First Edition variant that is the longest-lasting battery of the brand and a distance of up to 400 miles. A price tag of $105,000, plus additional destination charges will be included in that range.
According to its site, Chevy states that “Reservation does not guarantee that the car will be delivered within a certain timeframe. The dealer is the one who decides the final price. It could be that, in the event of a high demand the dealership could raise the price to $39,900 for a Silverado EV. However, one is only hoping that GM will follow Ford’s model and threatens to slap dealers that attempt to deceive customers.
