The upcoming 2022 Chevrolet BET is an all-new electric truck. This is not official yet. However, General Motors recently announced its future plans with all-electric vehicles. We expect to see a lot of teasers in the coming weeks and months. A month ago, we saw several forthcoming models and we saw a glimpse of the new pickup truck.
Now, we know it is the Chevrolet BET model, a pickup truck that will offer an electric powertrain. At this moment, only GMC Hummer EV is official. However, GM plans to launch more models, including the BET variant. We already know a couple of things about this new model, so, without further ado, here’s everything you need to hear.
Exterior Design, Dimensions
The 2022 Chevrolet BET electric pickup truck will most likely arrive as the full-size model. However, we don’t know its exact dimensions. We saw a glimpse of this new model, front fascia to be more precise. According to reliable reports, it is a “near-production design prototype” so we expect to see a very modern and unique pickup. It looks like a traditional truck, but we can spot new design language.
The front fascia comes with a high-mounted hood and rectangular upper grille. The Blazer and Trailblazer SUVs are offering similar styling as well. The front fascia is dominated by the split headlights and we think the overall design looks more dramatic. To the sides, the BET model will provide an angular approach with squarish wheel arches. The part behind the c-pillar is boxier and the complete exterior layout is very traditional.
At this moment, we don’t know that much about the interior. The 2022 Chevrolet BET truck will surely arrive with a combination of traditional layout and modern interior elements. That includes various driver-assistance aids, larger displays, and high-end materials. We think the interior will be all-digital, with more intuitive features and a very modern instrument cluster. Of course, new infotainment, 5G connectivity, and everything that one luxury pickup has to offer will be in the offer.
Chevrolet BET Electric Specs
The upcoming 2022 Chevrolet BET truck will reportedly deliver amazing performances. GM said that this all-electric model will offer 400 miles of driving range on a single charge. Some trim levels will offer an even better range. The credit goes to a 200 kWh battery pack, which is the battery that will be available in the range-topping model. It will become probably the biggest Ultium battery we’ve seen so far.
As this is a full-size truck, sharing architecture with the GMC Hummer EV makes perfect sense. It is the GM BT1 platform that will most likely underpin future GM’s large vehicles. Chevy BET electric truck will arrive with impressive acceleration, and much more. The base model will probably deliver around 250 miles of range on a single charge.
2022 Chevrolet BET Release Date, Price
To this date, we saw renderings and teasers only. However, this clearly indicates the 2022 Chevrolet BET is nearing the launch date. Of course, the sales will begin at some point in 2022, after the GMC Hummer EV is launched. The price is another mystery, but we don’t expect such an affordable price, like Tesla Cybertruck. On the other hand, the goal is to rival the Ford F-150 EV.
