All-Electric Chevrolet Silverado RST - CES announcement
During the recent CES convention, Chevrolet and GM announced their upcoming all-electric Chevrolet Silverado truck coming in 2024. Unfortunately, if you were not at the event you will have to wait to pre-order yours as GM's CEO Mary Barra says all available pre-orders sold out in just 12 minutes.
Today's eco-conscious consumer has been calling for change from the automotive industry for quite some time. From the advent of the electric vehicle, we have seen positive changes taking place, yet we continue to see the need for a vehicle that combines the best in power, convenience, and luxury with eco-conscious performance.
Your answer is here
The 2024 all-electric Chevrolet Silverado RST is the next generation of high-performance, clean vehicles designed to cater to your every luxurious whim and wish. It brings so much more to the table than a simple electric motor and battery combo. Chevrolet and General Motors have done a fantastic job of packing the Silverado with features that consumers have been asking for in an electric vehicle. Read on to see what stellar options exist in this EV, an innovative solution to all of your transportation needs.
Battery sharing and charging options
A fully-charged Silverado electric truck has the capability to act as your own personal power pack. Take your power with you on the go as you provide power for campsites, power tools and construction projects, or even a tailgate party. Power level indicators ensure that you'll never be left out in the cold without a working power source.
Portable charging systems
Bring your power---and all your chargeable devices--with you on your next trip without having to worry about finding available outlets. The Silverado can easily and quickly charge up to ten devices with an available accessory. Tools, electronic devices, and other gadgets can be easily plugged in and utilized on the go, no matter where you happen to be.
Vehicle connectivity options
Due to its powerful 10.2 kilowatts of energy, the EV is able to connect to other electric vehicles and even to home, sharing power in situations where you truly need it. We've bested Ford's claim of 9.6 kilowatts, making this the most powerful charge in the industry.
Large charging capabilities
The Silverado is able to charge at up to 350 kilowatts, and under the right conditions, it can accept a high-powered dump of energy faster than many other vehicles. In fact, Chevy claims that the Silverado is able to go an astonishing 160 kilometres farther with just ten minutes of charging time. You no longer have to wait hours to get back on the road, provided you plan regular stops for charging.
Truck owners know how important that back bed is. For hauling, packing, or tailgating, how you choose to use is up to you. The multi-flex midgate is a Chevy revolution designed to fit all of your truck bed needs. Providing an additional pathway for bed to the cab, the fold-over second seat allows you to haul and transport extra-long items safely and securely.
An additional piece inside the midgate expands even further into the front of the truck, allowing you to securely transport items such as wood planks, kayaks, and canoes. This expansion is a game-changer for truck enthusiasts.
Fold that back gate down and raise the multi-flex tailgate, and you've extended your hauling capabilities by at least two feet. This gives you the option to keep bed materials from sliding off the back of your vehicle, keeping belongings safe and sound. Extend back even further and use it as a step for getting in and out of the truck bed, making loading and unloading a breeze.
Extra storage space: A frunk!
Without the additional baggage of a gas-powered engine, the Silverado now boasts even more storage space via the "frunk". This trunk space, conveniently loaded in the front where a gas engine would sit, provides storage space for all of those things you don't want sliding around the truck bed. Tools, luggage, bikes, scooters, and all your family effects can ride securely in the front trunk while you haul to your heart's content in the back of your vehicle.
Additional plans are in the works for the development of accessories that will enhance front trunk space, including slide-out utility drawers, built-in luggage compartments, and other fun gadgets that the whole family will enjoy.
What luxury vehicle would be complete without the option of four-wheel steering? Take your EV off-road for some mud-slinging fun, and retain peace of mind when navigating slippery terrain in the winter and on rainy days. Four-wheel steering offers superior control without reducing your KM/L ratio. Take the wheel and enjoy touch-sensitive steering that moves where you want it to.
Super Cruise options
GM's driver assistance system is Super Cruise, enabling virtually hands-free driving on over 200,000 miles of approved highways. Even when pulling a trailer, Super Cruise allows for a smooth and easy ride and the best in technology innovation at the push of a button.
Not just a truck, it's an experience
The all-electric Chevrolet Silverado is not just an ordinary drive; it's a truly unique experience. Several customizable packages and over seventy unique features make this vehicle one-of-a-kind. With pickup trucks being one of the best-selling vehicles in the United States, the electrification of a model formerly known to be gas-guzzling and "emissions dirty" is now revolutionizing what we think about its potential. Consider implementing this technology to see its performance, enjoy its unique features, and feel good about the positive impact you are making on the environment.
Unfortunately, if you are just hearing of this unbelievable truck now you will have to wait to be able to reserve yours as GM's CEO Mary Barra announced that all available preorders sold out in just 12 minutes!
