Electric vehicles continue to take the automotive industry by storm. GM recently joined the party by announcing an electric Chevrolet Silverado.
As Chevrolet’s first full-size battery-powered pickup truck, this new electrified Chevy Silverado will combine GM’s innovative electric technology with Chevrolet’s iconic pickup design. With both retail and fleet versions of the model, the electric Chevy Silverado will appeal to loyal Chevy truck buyers, new electric drivers, and businesses alike.
When fully charged, the electric Chevy Silverado is estimated to deliver over 400 miles of zero-emissions driving. The full-size truck will be powered by GM’s exclusive Ultium batteries, which also power the GMC Hummer EV SUV and truck.
These fuel cells are produced in Lordstown, Ohio, at the new Ultium Cells LLC facility. The electric truck itself will be built at GM’s Factory ZERO assembly plant in Michigan. The facility pushes the boundaries of a zero-emissions future as GM’s first EV-only assembly plant. By producing EVs such as the Hummer, new Silverado, and upcoming Cruise Origin, Factory ZERO continues to pave the way for an exciting and electrified world.
While we wait for more details about this latest addition to the Chevy lineup, you can get behind the wheel of the 2021 Silverado pickup when you visit Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck in Rockland, Maine.
