Chevrolet officially unveiled the Silverado EV at CES 2022 in Las Vegas this morning.

The electric truck will come in two trims at its scheduled launch in the spring and fall of 2023. The first will be for fleet customers and priced under $40,000 USD, with another for regular customers later at a slightly more expensive price of $105,000 USD.

For that hefty price, the fully loaded RST First Edition will be based on GMs Ultium platform and come equipped with a 400 mile (643km) range.

This model, along with other variants to be released later, will feature impressive performance with 664 horsepower and more than 780lb-ft of torque.

That will give it an estimated 4.5 second 0-6omph time, while also allowing it to tow up to 10,000lbs. The Silverado EV will also have a maximum payload capacity of 1,300lbs (589kg).

Inside the electric truck will feature a 17-inch LCD infotainment screen, along with a second digital dash display.

Naturally it will also have a front trunk, but Chevy went with a slightly different name – eTrunk.

Silverado EV Work Truck

Fleet customers will be the first to get their hands on the Silverado EV, with the Work Truck (WT) variant expected in the spring of 2023.

At a much cheaper price of $39,900, the Silverado EV WT will come with the same 400 mile range and 10,000lb towing capacity.

It will be slightly less powerful with 510hp and 615lb-ft of torque.
