It looks like the time is fastly approaching for the transition to Electric Vehicles. While sure there will still be gas or ICE vehicles around, more and more car companies are announcing their upcoming EVs to the space. During CES this year, Chevy has finally shown off what to expect from their Silverado EV pick-up truck. On just design and looks, we think this looks rather good, especially in that blue color (But I’m also biased when it comes to the color blue).
Set to become available in 2023, Chevy is looking to have this pick-up come out with about 400 miles in range, offering two models with the RST First Edition and the WT model. The first models to come out won’t be cheap as the first fully config models will run you about $105K. Chevy states there will be more affordable models once production gets underway.
The Chevy Silverado EV will be packing some cool features which will make this an EV pick-up that you may want to have under your consideration list. First, there are the basic specs which include 400 miles of range, 660 HP, under 4.5 seconds for 0-60 time, and over 780LB of torque. Next, there are some features that will be really intriguing like being able to fit items over 10 feet long in the Silverado thanks to the Multi-Flex Midgate which allows a pass-through into the cabin. It will have a front trunk like the upcoming Ford F-150. Also, it will offer a truck with a smaller turning radius, allowing tight turns and better parking situations thanks to all four wheels working together with 4 wheel steering. Then you have other features like a 17-inch diagonal free-form screen in the dashboard, Google services like Google Assistance, Maps, and Play built-in. And these are just a few of the features, there are definitely more. This will make for quite an interesting vehicle!
What do you think? Will the 2024 Chevy Silverado be an EV contender when it drops?
