Chevrolet’s electric Silverado will debut at CES 2022
When General Motors CEO Mary Barra delivers the opening keynote at CES next year, not only will she open the event – she will be revelation The electric Silverado from Chevrolet. The automaker first revealed that work is underway in April on an electrified version of the pickup that promises an electric vehicle with a range of 400 miles that can compete with Tesla’s 2020 Long-Range Plus Model S.
In today’s announcement, Chevrolet also confirmed that the retail model will come with a glass roof with increased headroom to make the interior look bigger. It will appear to be the first time GM has made a glass roof option available for a full-size pickup truck. Chevrolet has also confirmed that the vehicle will have all-wheel steering.
The electric Silverado is based on GM’s Ultium platform, the automaker’s modular technology that enables it to combine and coordinate battery and drive units in order to electrify all types of vehicles across all brands. GMCs electrified lobster Vehicles are also based on the Ultium platform. And like the Hummer EVs, the electric Silverado is manufactured in GM’s Factory ZERO, the company’s new assembly plant in Detroit-Hamtramck. GM $ 2.2 billion spent to set up the factory with the equipment necessary to build all types of electric vehicles.
Mary Barra’s CES 2022 keynote and the debut of the Silverado will take place on January 5th.
