General Motors has confirmed plans to reveal the Chevrolet Silverado EV at the CES Show on January 5th. The announcement came during the automaker’s Investor Day event, outlining the company’s plan to double revenue over the next decade.
Along with the announcement that the reveal will take place at the annual electronics show, GM also showed us our first teaser of the EV pickup truck. Shown above, the impact depicts a truck with an optional fixed glass roof. GM says the Silverado EV will also offer more headroom versus today’s gas and diesel versions. Aside from the glass roof, this teaser also confirms the Silverado EV will have a very large touchscreen display, which appears to span from the gauge cluster over to the center stack. It is also notable that the photo shows actual knobs for controls under the large screen, suggesting Chevy is not going to total touchscreen control.
Despite the teaser, details are still scarce. GM President Mark Reuss asserted the Silverado EV will offer “over 400 miles of range,” though details were not offered. GM has also confirmed there will be retail and fleet variants of the Silverado EV, similar to the Ford F-150 Lightning. Lastly, we have confirmation it will offer optional four-wheel steering.
GM says the Silverado EV has been built from the ground up on a pickup truck specific variant of its Ultium battery system. As such, the company is very bullish about its prospects of being the leader in the EV truck arena. Though time will certainly tell as competition is heating up quickly.
