Every now and again, a brand-new vehicle comes along that demands we sit up and take notice, but few will have ever demanded attention as much or as justifiably as the all-new Chevrolet Silverado EV. The Silverado EV is a full-electric full-size pickup truck that’s set to be as desirable as it is capable, and things get even more exciting when you start to absorb the detail. Chevrolet’s first all-electric pickup truck will be able to handle any task a conventionally fuelled truck would be asked to take on around Woodbridge, Vaughan, Brampton, Kleinburg, Mississauga, and the Greater Toronto Area, but it has plenty more tricks up its sleeve too.
Chevrolet has decided to launch the Silverado EV in two quite different forms to begin with. One of them will be an affordable WT version aimed at fleets, and the other will be the RST First Edition that be aimed at an entirely different part of the market. The WT will still come with an impressive helping of the very latest cutting-edge technology, but the RST will be a genuine flagship model with a dazzling array of features covering every aspect of pickup truck capability, comfort, luxury, and connectivity.
It would be understandable for people to wonder if a fully electric truck would be as capable as an equivalent model powered by gas or diesel, but the Silverado EV will more than match its internal combustion engine rivals in the power stakes. WT versions of the Silverado EV will feature an electric powertrain that will produce as much as 510 horsepower and 615 lb.-ft. of torque, but the RST First Edition will go way beyond that with an electric system that will put out up to 664 horsepower and more than 780 lb.-ft. of torque.
In these relatively early days of full-electric vehicles, it’s only natural that newcomers to the technology have concerns about driving range and recharging. Those range anxiety concerns can be banished right now as GM estimates that both versions of the Silverado EV will offer up to 400 miles of driving range on a full charge of the battery. And as far as recharging is concerned, the fully electric Chevy truck will also offer DC fast charging capability of up to 350 kW, and that means drivers will be able to recharge the battery enough for 100 miles of driving in just 10 minutes.
There wouldn’t be much point in going to the expense and trouble of producing an electric pickup truck if it wasn’t capable of matching conventional trucks when it comes to towing and payloads, but there are no issues with either when it comes to the Silverado EV. WT models will be rated to tow up to 8,000 pounds, and they will also boast a 1,200-pound payload rating. RST versions see the tow rating increase by 2,000 pounds to a maximum of 10,000 pounds, and the maximum payload also increases to 1,300 pounds. Before too long, Chevrolet is also set to introduce a fleet model capable of towing up to 20,000 pounds when equipped with the max tow package.
And just to show that the Silverado EV doesn’t just match what gas-powered trucks can do, with the available max power Wide Open Watts Mode, RST versions of the Silverado EV will be able to get you from 0 to 60 mph in under 4.5 seconds.
The Chevrolet Silverado EV is an awful lot more than just another full-size truck, and it’s also much more than a truck with a fully electric powertrain.
