Chevy will build a 400-mile range Silverado EV beside the new Hummer EV
Factory ZERO is renovated and getting ready to build you a 400-mile range EV Silverado.
General Motors just announced that Chevrolet's Silverado electric pickup truck that will be built at the company’s Factory ZERO assembly plant in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan.
The electric Chevrolet Silverado will be designed from Ultium Platform. The truck will give customers a GM-estimated range of over 400 miles on a full charge. Chevy's 400 mile electric truck will be built alongside the new Hummer EV which was earlier confirmed to be built at the Factory ZERO plant.
Out of the Factory ZERO plant GM aims to sell more than 1 million electric vehicles globally by 2025. With new tools and technology GM has been on a path and succeeded to reduce vehicle development times by nearly 50 percent to just 26 months on the Ultium Platform.
“The vehicles coming from Factory ZERO will change the world, and how the world views electric vehicles,” said Reuss. “The GMC HUMMER EV SUV joins its stablemate in the realm of true supertrucks, and Chevrolet will take everything Chevy’s loyal truck buyers love about Silverado — and more — and put it into an electric pickup that will delight retail and commercial customers alike.”
Factory ZERO has undergone a largest ever renovation and retooling for a GM manufacturing facility. According to GM, the plant’s paint and body shops and general assembly area are receiving comprehensive upgrades, including new machines, conveyors, controls and tooling, and the plant has expanded to over 4.5 million square feet.
