Following the introduction of the Ford F-150 Lightning and Ram 1500 REV, General Motors is understandably trying to lure consumers in with its Chevrolet Silverado EV, which would be slated for the 2024 model year. Autonomy of one of the WT (Work Truck) versions of this electric van will be increased to 724 kilometers, which is 84 kilometers more than what was originally announced.
At least, that’s what General Motors’ new president for North America, Mr. Rory Harvey, confirmed in an interview with American media. He explained that the Development team did an exceptional job of making the van even more fuel efficient than originally planned. As this version of the Silverado EV has not yet been subjected to EPA evaluations, this autonomy is a projection based on the tests of the governmental authority.
Along with the announcement, Chevrolet USA announced pricing for this version in the US market, which will command a starting price of US$79,800, including freight and delivery charges. It would arrive in US dealerships within the next few weeks. A slightly more affordable version will then be added to the range with an estimated range of 563 kilometres. This one would cost US$74,800. The base, lower-range version, which won’t be released until later in the schedule, will cost US$41,595.
The Canadian market still waiting
On its media site, Chevrolet Canada has yet to mention anything about this WT version of the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV other than the fact that the lineup will start at a starting price of $52,448, excluding freight and delivery charges.
At this price, this is, of course, the reduced range version. The manufacturer does not yet mention anything about the other versions of the WT, but still announces that the RST version, the most upscale model in the line, will cost $119,948.
