General Motors is poised to heat up competition in the electric vehicle market next year with its new Silverado electric pickup. The company has invested $ 35 billion (approximately Rs 2.60,200 crore) for this market. The company introduced the Silverado electric pickup at CES 2022 and, after launch, it will compete with the Ford F-150 Lighting and the Rivian R1T electric pickup.

GM CEO Mary Barra told the CES technology event via video on Wednesday that the electric Silverado will be launched in two phases next year, according to the Reuters news agency. It will start with a $ 39,900 (approximately Rs 29.6 lakh) WT work truck delivered to select commercial fleets in the second quarter. By the end of 2023, GM plans to begin universal delivery of the Outdoor Adventure model, with prices starting at $ 105,000 (approximately Rs. 80 lakh).

Barra says the company plans to offer a heavy-duty electric pickup truck by 2025, which will be used primarily to haul heavy trailers. He added that Chevrolet also plans to launch a “Trail Boss” off-road version of the electric truck. At the same event, Chevrolet officials said at the briefing that retail customers will also have the option of cheaper variants of the electric Silverado in 2024 and beyond.

At launch, the Silverado EV will be available in two configurations: an RST First Edition model and a Fleet Oriented Work Truck (WT) model. Both models will be able to offer a range of more than 400 miles (approximately 644 km). The company claims that these trucks can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (0-96.5 kph) in less than 4.5 seconds.

Both models will be equipped with DC fast-charge speeds of up to 350 kW, allowing the truck to run approximately 100 miles (161 km) in 10 minutes of charging. However, this is the maximum input supported by the battery. Currently all electric vehicles come with a half capacity charger.
