While the Silverado EV will make its debut at CES 2022, Chevy has confirmed that production of the truck won't start until early 2023.
Chevy’s electric Silverado will debut at CES in January, though don’t expect to be able to buy one any time next year. GM has now confirmed that it won’t be built until early 2023.
That is better late than never I guess, for a truck that will directly compete with the Ford F-150 Lightning, the theoretical Tesla Cybertruck, and the Rivian R1T, all trucks that will probably be on the market before the electric Silverado.
Automotive News has the story:
General Motors plans to build the Chevrolet Silverado EV starting in early 2023, a top executive said Thursday.
Doug Parks, executive vice president for global product development, purchasing and supply chain, provided production timing at Deutsche Bank’s AutoTech Conference.
GM North America President Steve Carlisle told Automotive News in September that the electric pickup won’t necessarily be a derivative of today’s gasoline-powered pickup.
The flexibility of the Ultium battery platform removes the architectural limits that internal combustion vehicles have, Carlisle said at the time.
