General Motors President Mark Reuss announced Chevrolet will introduce a Silverado electric pickup truck that will be built at the company’s Factory ZERO assembly plant in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan. Reuss also confirmed the recently revealed GMC Hummer EV SUV will be built at Factory ZERO.
The Chevrolet Silverado electric full-size pickup will be designed from the ground up to be an EV and use GM’s Ultium Platform. The electric Silverado will offer customers a GM-estimated range of more than 400 miles on a full charge, the company said.
Chevrolet will also offer both retail and fleet versions, the company said.
“The vehicles coming from Factory ZERO will change the world, and how the world views electric vehicles,” said Reuss. “The GMC HUMMER EV SUV joins its stablemate in the realm of true supertrucks, and Chevrolet will take everything Chevy’s loyal truck buyers love about Silverado — and more — and put it into an electric pickup that will delight retail and commercial customers alike.”
