The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV 3WT won’t go 450 miles on a single charge
Americans currently have a limited selection of all-electric pickup trucks. Only the Ford F-150 Lightning, GMC Hummer EV Pickup, and Rivian R1T are currently for sale. The middle option should not be included because it is rarer than the tanzanite gemstone. But GM is preparing to bring the Chevrolet Silverado EV to dealers, and Canada is helping us get the official information on the 3WT range. Unfortunately, it does not reflect what the 4WT is expected to offer.

Chevy could soon add another model to its lineup of all-electric pickup trucks in America. I promised the Silverado was well equipped Eve RST will become available in the fall of 2023. However, don’t get your expectations too high.
Updated information about the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV is scarce. But we should give GM some breathing room. He’s dealing with a lot of issues right now. Its unionized workers are striking and threatening to amplify their movement if the auto giant does not improve its counteroffer.
Meanwhile, manufacturing of Ultium energy storage modules became difficult in August, and there appears to be no signs of relief.
But if you want to be among the first to drive a Silverado EV, make sure you can order more than one or prepare to splurge on a pricey RST model. The latter should be offered to retail buyers by the end of November, while the cheaper WT is targeting commercial customers first. The WT will become available to those not looking to replace a fleet of vans in 2024.
Chevrolet said the Silverado EV 4WT will travel 450 miles on a single charge, more than any other battery-electric pickup truck currently on sale. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) confirmed this. But from the looks of it, this might be an exclusive feature reserved for the top WT version.
Natural Resources Canada published relevant information about the Chevy’s energy consumption, revealing that it travels 393 miles (632 km) on a full battery. That’s 57 miles less than the 4WT.
The combined 3WT efficiency is 50.5 kilowatt hours/100 miles (31.4 kWh/100 km) or 1.98 mi/kWh.
The same source classified Chevy’s all-electric pickup as a “standard” pickup truck, meaning the Silverado EV 3WT can weigh between 6,000 and 8,500 pounds.
The Ford F-150 Lightning with the Extended Range Battery has an EPA-rated 320 miles of range, the GMC Hummer EV Pickup gets 314 miles on a single charge, and the Rivian dual-motor R1T with energy storage travels With a range of 352 miles on a full battery, the upcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV 3WT will still outperform its competitors.
However, Rivian has confirmed that it will begin delivering R1Ts equipped with the 180 kWh Max Pack to customers, and that this version of the regular-built pickup has an EPA-estimated 410 miles of range.
Therefore, Chevy should roll out the 4WT (or any version of the Silverado EV) sooner rather than later.
Last year, a leak revealed that the Silverado EV 3WT could have a starting cost of $72,905, while the 4WT would add $5,000 on top of the 3WT’s price. Both did not include the $1,895 shipping fee.
Given that nothing notable has happened since this leak appeared, we don’t expect these numbers to continue. The car market is on a downward trend, and financing has become more difficult lately. The tie brand should offer a low MSRP.
Finally, another important detail revealed by Natural Resources Canada is energy production – 381 kilowatt Or 511 hp.
