Hello everyone! It looks like I'm first person that stumbled across this site. I've been a Chevy and GM guy for most of my life and I've owned a 2010 Silverado since new.

I've been following along with GM's shift towards electric vehicles and while the stuff with the Hummer is cool and all it's way too much for my money. What really caught my eye was the electric Silverado news. I'm at the point where I'm looking for something new and if Chevy can deliver the same performance and capability with the electric Silverado as the gas one it seems like a no brainer to me.

Hopefully more people can join so we can all follow the news together.

Hello everyone. This forum seems dead. I hope not. I'm excited about the electric Silverado. 400 miles would be amazing! However, my worry is at what price will that be offered? I only need 300 miles at an affordable price. 400 would be even better!

400 miles is definitely what I would consider my minimum. I have done the math at 300-320 miles and that would work but seems to be more of a sacrifice than I would like to make. I'm not expecting it to cost $40k, but also hoping it isn't over $80k. I currently have a deposit on a Rivian (with Max pack battery is supposed to be 400+ miles), and that is about the top of what I want to spend, but also more on the luxury side than I need.

I think 400 miles is right on target. 300 would be my bare minimum. After driving a Bolt with ~240mi range that drops to 160 in the winter, starting with as much capacity as possible is crucial. I think people switching over from ICE trucks will be disappointed when they try to haul their camper and snowmobiles somewhere and it ends up a one way trip.

Yeah that's still an area that'll turn people off of an electric truck. I know for Rivian, they say that at max towing capacity to expect the range to be cut in half. It'll probably be around that for the Silverado as well.
