The 2024 GMC Sierra EV battery size will be a whopping 200 kWh lithium-ion variety that is predicted to take the all-electric truck 400 miles on one charge.
Although freshly announced and with limited details, there is certainly a fair amount of buzz in anticipation of GMC’s next EV venture. The GMC Sierra Denali Edition 1 follows two other GMC EVs, the Hummer EV Pickup and Hummer EV SUV, and is set to be released in early 2024.
How big is a GMC Sierra Denali Edition 1 battery?
Among the details GM released regarding the new Sierra EV is the anticipated battery size. When the GMC Sierra Denali Edition 1 releases in early 2024, it’s set to do so with a battery size of200 kWh.
It utilizes a behemoth lithium-ion battery pack that can put out 754 horsepower and 785 pounds of torque. Initial GM predictions claim a potential range of 400 miles on a full charge. In comparison, the GMC Hummer EV Pickup has a range of around 350 miles, and the GMC Hummer EV SUV gets around just 300 miles.
Following the bi-directional charging capabilities of GMC EVs before it, the Sierra Denali Edition 1 battery will be compatible with GM Energy’s Ultium Home offerings so you can actually run power to your home from the truck’s battery pack. That’ll come in handy during a blackout.
GMC Sierra Denali Edition 1 battery, range, and charging specs
As we previously mentioned, there isn’t a ton of information on the Sierra EV’s battery specs. However, GM has released some initial details for our imaginations to run with.
The predicted range does not come from an EPA rating but from GM themselves and is in fact just an estimate. Real-world figures will be slightly different and it’s not unlikely for the estimates to change as the release date gets closer either.
How does the Edition 1’s battery measure up to the competition?
The body design of the GMC Sierra Denali Edition 1 is not unlike other electric pickup trucks in its class, but how does the battery measure up? How does it stand next to EV titan Tesla or other notable electric pickups like the Rivian R1T or Ford F-150 Lightning?
If the new Sierra EV can keep close to its initial predictions, it will have a significant presence in both battery size and range. Though maybe not up to the range capabilities of Tesla, the GMC Sierra Denali Edition 1 is likely to be a powerhouse in the EV world once it’s released.
