General Motors has announced the first-ever Chevrolet Silverado electric pick-up! This new EV will be a full-size truck that can travel over 400 miles on a full charge. It will run on General Motor’s Ultium battery. And, Chevy says it will be offered in retail and fleet versions. So, customers will have a variety of options.
The new Silverado does not have a set release date. GM is also building the all-new 2023 Cadillac Lyriq. That’s Cadillac’s first EV. GM plans to offer 30 new electric models by 2025. It’s also investing over $3 billion a year in EV development through at least 2025.
GM’s Ultium Batteries
GM’s upcoming Ultium batteries have capacities that range from 50 kWh to 200 kWh. In comparison, Tesla’s biggest battery is 100 kWh. GM says its batteries will cost under $100 kWh. In 2019, the average price for an EV battery was $156 kWh. The Ultium batteries will also have 70 percent less cobalt than other EV batteries. That makes them more environmentally-friendly.
2023 Cadillac Lyric
The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will also run on one of GM’s Ultium batteries. It will have over 300 miles of driving range on a full charge. There will be multiple charging options for your home and workplace, and on the go. This EV will also include an enhanced version of GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driving system. It allows you to drive with your hands off the wheel on thousands of miles of enabled roads. And, it will be able to park and unpark itself with or without someone in the vehicle.
Inside the Lyriq, there will be a super impressive 33-inch display that spans the length of almost the entire dashboard. It will act as the gauge cluster and entertainment system. Other features include a head-up display, a 19-speaker AKG Studio audio system, a “black crystal” grille, and hidden storage. This EV will also be available with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. It’s expected to be available in late 2022.
