GM today announced the construction of a new Chevrolet Silverado electric pickup alongside the new Hummer EV at Michigan’s new Factory Zero.

Last year, GM announced that the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center will be the site of a new plant to produce only electric vehicles.

They confirmed that the project, called Factory Zero, would be the source of production of the new GMC Hummer EV.

Today, the automaker announced that the new Factory Zero will also produce the upcoming new Chevrolet Silverado electric pickup.

General Motors Chairman Mark Reuss said during the announcement:

Vehicles from Factory ZERO will change the world and the way the world views electric vehicles. The GMC HUMMER EV SUV joins its stable partner in the real super-truck arena, and Chevrolet will take everything loyal Chevy truck buyers love about Silverado – and more – and put it in an electric pickup truck that customers will love from around the world. retail and commercial.

They confirmed that they were planning a Silverado-type electric pickup truck with a range of 400 miles:

Chevrolet BET Truck, which will be the brand’s first full-size electric pickup, delivering over 400 miles of range on a single charge.

The automaker has confirmed that the new electric pickup is designed from the ground up to be an all-electric vehicle with the Ultium battery and transmission technology.

GM also said today that they will have versions of the new electric pickup truck aimed at shopping malls.

Reuss said the pickup will feature “innovations you can’t even imagine”.

Despite today’s announcement, GM is not revealing a concept for the new pickup truck, even though it teased a prototype last year – pictured below.

The pickup is expected to be cheaper than the new Hummer EV and help GM compete with a series of new electric pickup trucks from Tesla, Rivian and Ford.

The timing for the Chevrolet Silverado electric pickup to go into production and be available for sale is currently unclear, but GM said today more will be announced in the coming months.
