GM to build electric Silverado at Detroit's Factory Zero
- April 7, 2021
The Chevy Bolt EV sedan, assembled at the same facility, is currently the company’s only electric mass-market vehicle, but an all-electric Hummer SUV is also in development.
President Mark Reuss announced Chevrolet will introduce a Silverado electric pickup truck that will be built at the company’s Factory ZERO assembly plant, formerly named the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant.
The Chevrolet Silverado electric full-size pickup is designed from the ground up to be an EV, harnessing the best of GM’s Ultium platform and Silverado’s proven capability. The electric Silverado will offer customers a GM-estimated range of more than 400 miles on a full charge.
Retail and fleet versions will offer customers a variety of options and are expected to be in high demand as GM plans to deliver more than 1 million electric vehicles globally by 2025 and earn EV market leadership in North America. The company’s Ultium Platform, virtual development tools and technology, GM has reduced vehicle development times by nearly 50 per cent to just 26 months.
