It is often said that nothing stays the same for long. For Chevy, the 2024 Electric Silverado embodies what’s great and exciting about making electric mobility more accessible in an industry where change is constant. The high-end truck, which will be built at the Factory ZERO complex in Detroit, promises up to 400 miles of all-electric range on a full charge, 664 horsepower and 10,000 pounds of towing capacity.
When it goes on sale in 2023, 2024 ChevroletSilverado Electric will join a lineup of electric pickups from Ford, GMC, Tesla and Rivian. However, Chevy enthusiasts need not worry about the competition, as the Silverado Electric will provide the high-quality equipment needed to withstand the competition. Read on for ten things we now know about the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado electric car.
10 Based on the GMC Hummer EV
The 2024 Chevy Silverado Electric is based on the GM BT1 platform, which supports GM’s battery-powered trucks and SUVs, including the GMC Hummer EV, GMC Sierra EV, Chevrolet Equinox EV, and the upcoming Cadillac Escalade electric vehicle.
The architecture allows for an ideal center of gravity and a near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution, resulting in a responsive, sporty performance.
9 Available in two configurations
At launch, the 2024 Electric Chevrolet Silverado will be offered in two configurations equipped with a comprehensive suite of advanced safety and driver assistance features: the Work Truck (WT) and the more upscale first version of the RST.
The WT model will provide basic amenities directly geared to the needs of passengers. These include vinyl seats, rubber flooring, and silver-coated steel wheels, plus black front and rear bumpers, and exterior accents. The RST has a sporty and rugged look that embodies sportiness and driving pleasure. It features aluminum alloy wheels, front and rear bumpers with color-coded switches, exterior accents, and significant interior improvements.
8 She has a lot of strength
The 2024 Electric Chevrolet Silverado features an all-electric powertrain consisting of dual motors and a 200 kWh battery pack. The dual-motor e4WD powertrain delivers 510 hp and 615 lb-ft of torque in the WT, as well as 664 hp and 780 lb-ft of torque in the RST.
According to the Detroit-based manufacturer, zero to 60 mph is hit in under 4.5 seconds. The electric Chevrolet Silverado is available with a four-wheel drive system that distributes power well and helps with handling.
7 It’s luxurious on the inside
The Chevrolet Silverado Electric 2023 features a beautifully crafted cabin with premium materials that epitomizes the sophisticated design essence of the next generation of Chevrolet.
Drivers will find the electric Silverado more comfortable than a regular truck, thanks to the functional amenities, roominess and privacy-enhancing features. The seats can be customized with two-tone upholstery with red and blue stitching, while the flat-bottom steering wheel provides good grip and enhances the car’s already interior design.
6 It has got the latest technology
Shoppers seeking a Chevy Silverado can expect a more connected driving experience, as the truck will feature leading-edge technologies. Buyers can choose between a 11.0-inch infotainment touchscreen paired with an 8.0-inch digital diagonal screen as well as a 17.0-inch infotainment touchscreen and 11.0-inch diagonal screen.
Silverado Electric will also have many desirable features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration for smartphones, a Wi-Fi hotspot, indoor navigation, and SiriusXM satellite radio.
5 Same length and height as Silverado in Standard Crew Cab and Short Bed
The Chevrolet Silverado EV 2024 is roughly the same exterior size as the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab. Dimensionally, the Silverado EV is 233 inches long, 155.7 inches wheelbase, and 76 inches high.
Meanwhile, the Silverado 1500 Crew cab measures 231.7 inches in length, 147.5 inches in wheelbase, and 78.4 inches in height. Although the two cars are nearly identical in exterior dimensions, the Silverado EV has more interior space than its longtime gas-powered sibling.
4 It has a fixed glass roof
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado will have an available fixed panoramic glass roof – the first of its kind in a full-size pickup from General Motors. This feature provides a high roofline that ensures excellent headroom and better forward visibility.
In addition, the large panoramic roof gives the interior of the Silverado EV a light, airy, open-sky feel that enhances the feeling of close connection with nature.
3 The return of the foldable Midgate
Arguably the highlight of the 2024 electric Chevrolet Silverado is the Multi-Flex Midgate, a feature that returns from the Chevrolet Avalanche, a full-size pickup truck that was discontinued after 2013. The foldable Midgate in the Silverado EV allows you to fold the wall between the bed and cabin, This increases the length of the load from a standard five feet to about 10 feet.
Unlike the Avalanche Midgate design, which can’t be fully opened or fully closed, the Avalanche features a 60/40 split bottom section, allowing you to leave the rear windshield in place. This means you can fold one side at a time, fold both sides, or open the entire middle section to accommodate larger items.
2 Equipped with four-wheel steering
The Chevrolet Silverado 2024 Electric features a four-wheel steering that gives you excellent control and exceptional maneuverability, even in small, tight spaces.
That’s because four-wheel steering causes the front and rear wheels of a Silverado EV to spin in opposite directions at low speeds. At higher speeds (more than 25 mph), the wheels rotate in the same direction to make it easier for drivers to change lanes.
1 It is equipped with adaptive air suspension
The Silverado 2024 Electric comes equipped with an adaptive air suspension system that allows you to select the ideal driving position for maximum comfort behind the wheel.
The system can be raised or lowered by up to two inches, giving you the flexibility you need in different environments while also allowing you to enjoy the thrill of driving in a cabin that exudes sporty luxury, regardless of payload or obstructions.
