The all-new 2022 Chevrolet Silverado EV teased a few days ago, in the background of a presentation video. Soon after that, GM confirmed that they are working on an entirely new Silverado pickup truck, that will be powered by electric motors.
They also revealed that this model would travel around 400 miles on a single charge, which is excellent for a full-size truck. According to many reports, Chevy Silverado EV is expected to happen next year, probably after Ford officially introduces its F-150 Electric model. Pricing and other details are not available yet, but consider that this model is confirmed, we have to wait a little more to get information about it.
2022 Chevrolet Silverado EV Design
As mentioned, this week, General Motors teased us with its upcoming 2022 Chevrolet Silverado EV model. In the presentation video at Barclays Global Automotive Conference, the EV model appears at the moment in the background. For us, that has been enough to indicate that the Silverado EV will feature utterly different styling than the predecessor. The new full-size pickup truck looks refreshed, and it uses the latest GMs polygonal body style.
Moreover, the front of the Silverado EV is completely redesigned. The teased model revealed the front fascia with newly shaped slim headlights and a grille with no openings. This is one more indicator that Silverado is going electric. As you probably know, all-electric models don’t need openings on the grill for extra cooling, like in the case with ordinary engines. The interior is the most mysterious part. However, there has no doubt, the 2022 Chevy Silverado EV will probably offer more features and upscale materials, than the regular one.
Platform and Range
We recently heard plenty of gossips, and one of them is that the 2022 Chevy Silverado EV will share a platform with the upcoming Hummer EV. If you didn’t know, this model uses the latest BT1 architecture, allowing it plenty of future modifications. Suppose Silverado deploys the same architecture, we can for sure expect the same Ultium battery packages. Basically, this justifies General Motors’ words that the Silverado EV will provide up to 400 miles on a single charge.
The upcoming Hummer EV will be officially able to provide the same millage. This truck can also sprint from 0 to 60 mph in around 3.0 seconds. The entry-level models might also use a battery that can deliver 250 miles of driving range on a single charge.
2022 Chevy Silverado EV Release Date and Price
Perhaps the most exciting news that we heard is that the 2022 Chevy Silverado EV is coming. GM has teased a new electric pickup truck, and we must admit, it looks different than any Silverado model so far. From the information that we got, the forthcoming EV pickup truck will be launched by mid-2021.
The price is not available yet, but from many speculations, everything below $50,000 is welcome. As we wrote a few posts back, Blue Oval is also preparing its Ford F-150 Electric version, and we cannot wait to see these models side by side.
