We’ve been talking about the upcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV for some time now, but we haven’t learned much from the extremely limited leaks and info shared by GM. That’s about to change, however, as we now have the truck’s reveal date. GM CEO Mary Barra will unveil the electric full-size truck on January 5, 2022 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Chevrolet outlined some of the features for the upcoming truck, including 24-inch tires and four-wheel steering. The steering function could enable the crabwalk feature seen on the upcoming GMC Hummer EV. The Silverado will also get a full glass roof that Chevy says will increase headroom and offer “expansive visibility.” The truck will be the first from GM with the glass roof option.
Chevrolet shared no powertrain details, other than saying that the Silverado will deliver a range of more than 400 miles. The automaker also noted that the truck will be available in both fleet and retail versions, and will offer a “variety of options and are expected to be in high demand.”
When the all-electric Silverado lands, it will be in the thick of an explosion of new electric pickup trucks. The Ford F-150 Lightning should come in early 2022, the GMC Hummer EV is due in late 2022, and Rivian began deliveries of the R1T pickup last month. That takes us from a world with zero electric trucks to a world with several electric trucks in the span of just a year.
