According to General Motors, there are already more than 110,000 reservations for the upcoming all-electric 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV. The figures illustrate how fast appetite among U.S. consumers is growing every year for trucks. Chair and CEO Mary Barra said that the new truck would arrive next year as 2024YM, and it will be all-electric.
From information that’s available, the manufacturer will use the same setup and battery as in the GMC Hummer EV. A large battery pack should provide up to 400 miles of range per charge, supporting DC fast-charging tech. Also, dual electric motors come standard, providing all-wheel drive. Thanks to this setup, the Chevrolet Silverado EV could produce 664-hp and tow up to 10,000 pounds.
2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV First Look
The forthcoming 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV will be reportedly only available in crew cab form. Like the most of full-size pickup truck, the Silverado EV has the same typical upright stance. The front of this truck dominates with grille that has been designed to allow direct airflow around the sides, resulting in a much better aerodynamics.
Of course, thanks to that it also improves performance and driving range. Like the discontinued Chevrolet Avalanche, the Silverado EV also features a movable midgate, separating the cargo bed from the tailgate. Basically, this will help the Silverado EV to be more capable when it comes to hauling long and bulky gear.
Roomy and Modern Interior
The manufacturer recently reveals how the interior of the loaded RST model will look like. We ‘re impressed with the design inside, and the EV model offers the same passenger space as a regular Silverado crew cab pickup truck. All models as Chevrolet claims will come with a digital dashboard, 11.0-inch infotainment touchscreen and an 8.0-inch digital gauge display.
Upgrading to the top-level RST, you will get a larger 17.0-inch infotainment screen and an 11.0-inch gauge display. Unfortunately, Chevrolet hasn’t released exact details about its new infotainment system, but we expect Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to be standard, just like navigation, SiriusXM satellite radio, and an on-board Wi-Fi hotspot.
2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV Battery Capacity, Range
Unlike the three electric motor-powered Hummer EV, the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV will use only two electric motors. The setup should provide robust acceleration and all-wheel drive as standard. Chevrolet claims a horsepower rating of at least 664 hp with this setup.
This is probably the configuration for a top-spec RST model. So, expect the base WT trim to make around 510 hp. Chevrolet also claims the Silverado EV will provide driving range of up to 400 miles per charge. On top of that, the maximum towing capacity of this truck will be 10,000 pounds for the RST model and around 8000 pounds for the WT.
