Chevrolet
was one of the first companies to announce it is all-in on electric trucks. The automaker will roll out its first all-electric truck in Fall 2023, just in time for the 2024 model year. It will offer 400 miles of all-electric range with torque, propulsion, and towing capability that will blow you away.
Even though
Ford
and
Tesla
are making waves in the electric truck segment too, Chevrolet is close behind with its
Chevrolet Silverado EV
. The brand’s vice president, Steve Hill, says this truck will remain the “powerhouse” the Silverado is today—but electrified. 
Here to walk you through everything we know about the upcoming Chevrolet Silverado electric truck is
Jerry

super app
and
car insurance
expert. 

Does Chevrolet have an electric truck?

No, Chevrolet does not have an electric truck for sale currently. But it will soon!
Ford has made its intentions known for quite some time with the announcement of the Ford
F-150 Lightning
, but Chevy is hot on their heels with the Chevrolet Silverado EV. Both of these vehicles are already stacking up sales, while the EV trucking offering from Tesla has already surpassed 1 million reservations.
Even though the Silverado will be a full-electric truck, it will look and feel like a traditional gas-powered vehicle and still offer superior
towing capabilities
, payload capacity, and the ruggedness fans have come to expect.

How much does the Silverado EV cost?

The Chevy Silverado EV won’t be cheap. It will be released in two versions with drastically different price points.
The Silverado WT EV—built as a fleet vehicle—will start at $41,595. The fully-loaded RST First Edition, which will be sold to the general public, will start at $106,695.
Tons of options will be available on these two models, which will allow for some flexibility when it comes to pricing. The final cost will depend on your personal preferences and budget.

What makes a Chevrolet Silverado EV special?

The Silverado EV will be a reimagining of the brand’s best-selling nameplate, and it will come with everything you expect to get from a Chevrolet.
The Silverado will be powered by GM’s proprietary Ultium Platform, which is the foundation of the company’s EV strategy. This allows Chevy to create an EV pickup with impressive performance and capability. 
It also comes with a new body architecture that leverages the Ultium battery pack—the component responsible for the truck’s impressive range.
This truck will also feature fast charging capabilities of up to 350kW that can add 100 miles of range in less than 10 minutes
The Silverado EV will offer up to 14 available camera views and up to 10,000 pounds of towing. The fleet version will eventually maintain a 20,000-pound towing capacity. 
Four-wheel steering and automatic adaptive air suspension will also come standard. 

How long does it take to charge a Silverado EV?

While Chevrolet doesn’t say specifically how long it will take to charge a Silverado EV, we can make some assumptions based on available information.
The truck will come with Level 1 and Level 2 home charging options:
  • Level 1: 120-volt charging—Takes up to 24 hours to get a full charge
  • Level 2: 240-volt charging—Only takes a few hours, with the bulk of the charging complete within 20 to 30 minutes

What are Chevrolet’s future EV plans?

The Silverado EV is just the latest in Chevrolet’s electric vehicle plans.
What started with the
Chevrolet Volt
has turned into a robust strategy that is dedicated to delivering 400,000 electric vehicles by 2024. Among these EVs will be electrified versions of the
GMC Sierra
and a
Hummer
EV, which will pair nicely with the
Chevrolet Bolt
and soon-to-be-available Silverado EV.
Ambitious goals, to be sure, but the company is committed to reaching them as they open new factories that are wholly committed to building these vehicles. 

The future of car insurance shopping

One downside of buying an electric vehicle is that they tend to have
higher insurance costs
. This is because the parts and repairs are expensive, not to mention the value of the vehicle is usually higher.
That’s why you shouldn’t take an older approach to car insurance shopping if you want to buy the most cutting-edge vehicles on the market. You could spend the day researching insurance quotes, but who wants to do that?
