The upcoming 2023 Chevy Silverado Electric is officially happening. This model will be produced in Michigan, in the same factory as the GMC Hummer EV. Not surprisingly, but Silverado Electric and Hummer EV will share a lot of similarities. That includes the same battery pack, which is great to hear.
This battery will provide around 400 miles of all-electric range on a single charge. You can already find a lot of rumors about other truck’s details. Still, this model is official, and here’s everything we know about the first-ever all-electric Silverado.
2023 Silverado Electric Will Look More Upright
At this moment, we know almost nothing about the design of the 2023 Chevy Silverado Electric. However, the most reliable sources are predicting a truck that looks more attractive than the regular Silverado. Chevrolet will redesign the front fascia and it will provide a closed grille. A similar thing can be found on the upcoming F-150 Electric pickup truck.
The Silverado EV will switch to the same platform that underpins the brand-new GMC Hummer EV truck. This means the all-electric variant of the Silverado model won’t use a body-on-frame structure like the regular Silverado. Thanks to that, this model will provide various battery sizes and improved ride quality.
The interior of the 2023 Chevy Silverado Electric will also share a lot of things with the Hummer EV. A new platform should provide even more space inside the cabin. At this point, we don’t have any info about the truck’s interior design. Logically, a whole interior will be based on the regular Silverado model. On the other hand, we expect to see more modern features and more luxury.
That should include more premium materials, a new infotainment system, and the latest driver-assistance aids. We can’t say this truck will offer larger displays or some other improvements. However, Silverado Electric will deliver features such as Electric Parking Brake Assist, Hill Start Assist, and Trailer Sway Control system.
This is another mystery, as no one knows how will the 2023 Chevy Silverado Electric perform. We can assume the Silverado truck will borrow a thing or two from the GMC Hummer EV. Because of that, Silverado will introduce multiple powertrain options and battery sizes. Most likely, Chevy will also offer variants with single, dual, and triple motors.
Like Hummer EV, Silverado Electric will deploy the same Ultium 200-kWh battery pack with 400 miles of driving range on a single charge. This is not official yet, so we’ll have to wait a couple of months for more details. That includes various powertrain specs, including the power, towing capacity, and charging time.
2023 Chevy Silverado Electric Release Date, Price
The brand-new 2023 Chevy Silverado Electric will hit the dealerships at some point next year. Most likely, this truck will go on sale in the second half of 2022. It will be very interesting to see the competition in the electric truck segment.
That includes models such as Tesla Cybertruck, Rivian R1T, and Ford F-150 EV. The price is not available, and it will remain a mystery for the next couple of months. GM also revealed the brand’s goal is to offer up to 30 electric models in the next four years.
