Silverado EV spied testing for the first time
Chevrolet announced the all-electric Silverado a while ago, but this is the first time we see it running pre-production tests outside.
The pickup in the spy shots lacks the trim of its conceptual predecessor – no skirts, running boards, wheel arches or badges. Fake panels conceal the DRLs and taillights, while the headlights look like a temporary solution.
Once it reaches the showrooms, the Silverado EV will be available in two variants called Work Truck and RST. The latter is a flagship model rated at 673 PS (664 hp / 495 kW) and 1,057 Nm (780 lb-ft) of torque, which enables it to sprint 0-97 km/h (0-60 mph) in just 4.5 seconds.
The Work Truck is a bit tamer at 517 PS (510 hp / 380 kW) and 834 Nm (615 lb-ft) of torque, but obviously very capable nevertheless.
Chevrolet also promised to outfit its electric truck with the largest GM Ultium battery available, which should grant it up to 644 km (400 miles) of range.
