It was an open secret and now it's been confirmed: Chevrolet is going to offer an all-electric version of its full-size Silverado pickup. With two electric Hummers and an electric version of the Sierra pickup in the works from from GMC, it was pretty obvious Chevy would get its own electric truck.
Today, the company gave more details about it.
We also learned from the automaker that it will build the model at the same factory where the electric Hummer will be produced, the newly re-baptized Factory Zero plant in Michigan. Chevrolet announced furthermore that it will offer a range of around 600 km and, no surprise there, use the Ultium battery developed by General Motors.
Again, none of this is exactly news, but it’s now official and all.
