Amazing as part of General Motors in its CES 2022 virtual keynote, this week unveiled a reimagined, fully electric version of its Silverado full-size pickup truck and it didn’t take long for consumers to stamp it with their seal of approval.
The 2024 Silverado EV is powered by GM’s Ultium platform and will be available in two configurations at launch.
The RST First Edition for the consumer market will afford an estimated 400 miles of range on a single charge along with 10.2kW of offboard power as well as options like four-wheel steering, a fixed glass roof and a 17-inch infotainment system.
Power wise, you’re looking at 664 horsepower and 780 ft.-lbs. of torque that’ll be good for a 0-60 mph jaunt in less than 4.5 seconds
GM also has the new EV Hummer in its lineup, but it isn’t the only automaker finding success with electric pickups.
Ford recently said it would be nearly doubling production capacity for its F-150 Lightning to meet surging demand as consumers continue to show a propensity for modern electric vehicles
