Chevrolet’s popular pickup truck is going electric! General Motors announced a new Silverado electric pickup truck that will be joining the Chevrolet lineup. The Silverado EV will join the GMC Hummer EV SUV at GM’s Factory ZERO assembly plant based in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan.
1 Million Electric Vehicles
With the addition of the Silverado electric pickup truck, GM is one step closer to achieving its goal of delivering more than 1 million electric vehicles globally by 2025. The automaker continues to pave the way for EV development in North America, with its Ultium Platform at the heart of its EV strategy.
The new Chevrolet Silverado electric full-size pickup truck will harness its electric power from the Ultium Platform and combine with the Silverado’s capability to provide more than 400 miles on a full charge.
Factory ZERO Plant
The Factory ZERO plant specializes in producing all-electric trucks and SUVs, creating a future with zero emissions, zero crashes, and zero congestion. In addition to the Silverado EV and GMC Hummer SUV, Factory ZERO is also the home of the GMC Hummer EV pickup and the Cruise Origin. GM announced a $2.2 billion investment in Factory ZERO back in January 2020, demonstrating their commitment to an innovative, all-electric future.
