Chevrolet’s electric pickup truck will travel up to 450 miles on a full charge. The 2024 Silverado EV is available in RST and WT (work truck) versions, the WT designed for fleet use.
The Silverado EV WT has 510 horsepower, 615 lb.-ft. of torque, and an EPA-estimated 450-mile range. It can tow 8,000 pounds and carry 1,200 pounds. A later fleet model will have up to 20,000 pounds max trailering.
The electric pickup is built on GM’s Ultium Platform. A new body architecture leverages the available 24-module Ultium battery pack as a part of the fundamental structure. The chassis is designed with independent front and rear suspensions, with power transferred to the wheels via front- and rear-drive motors that compose the e4WD system. Automatic Adaptive Air Suspension enables the vehicle to be raised or lowered up to 2 inches.
Four-wheel steer capability reduces the turning radius at lower speeds for greater maneuverability in parking lots, and enhances handling and stability at higher speeds, particularly when trailering.
Other features include Tow/Haul mode, trailer hitch provisions, and an integrated trailer brake controller and Hitch Guidance.
The trucks can use public DC fast-charging capabilities of up to 350kW to add approximately 100 miles of range in 10 minutes.
When combined with the available accessory power bar, the Silverado EV’s PowerBase charging system offers up to 10 outlets to provide 10.2kW of all-electric power for worksite needs. The truck can also charge another EV using the available accessory charge cord.
Ultium Charge 360 Fleet Service offers charging solutions for businesses, whether drivers take their vehicles home or return to a central depot.
The Silverado EV comes as a Crew Cab, with a short front overhang that enhances forward downvision. The second row is pushed rearward, so passengers over 6 feet tall will be comfortable no matter where they sit.
The eTrunk—a lockable, weatherproof compartment in the front of the vehicle—provides space for gear.
