When Can I Buy the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV?
Chevrolet has been building full-size pickup trucks for more than 80 years. There are very few technological innovations in those eight decades of production where Chevy hasn’t been on the cutting-edge. Budds’ Chevy customers will have a bit of a wait to see the manufacturer’s next leap forward, the Chevy Silverado EV. Chevrolet announced that the electric version of its popular pickup truck will go on sale for the 2024 model year, starting with the RST First Edition, arriving during the fall of 2023. We’re still waiting on some of the finer details, but Chevrolet has shared enough information about the Silverado EV to give us a clear picture of what we can expect to see.

“The all-electric Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup is designed from the ground up to be an EV, harnessing the Ultium platform and the Silverado’s proven capability,” Michael MacPhee, brand director, Chevrolet Canada, said in a press release. “The Silverado EV is redefining the boundaries of the full-size pickup segment, taking what you thought was possible and completely breaking the mould.”
Performance and EV Range Specs
Pickup trucks have to be able to perform as their owners need them to perform. Questions about the performance and capability of an electrified pickup truck are going to come from buyers who are notoriously loyal to their platforms. Chevy is replacing the traditional gas-powered, internal combustion engine with a series of electric motors. When the proper settings are engaged, the 2022 Silverado EV will make up to 660 horsepower and 780 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, Chevy estimates the first RST models will be able to travel up to 640 km on a single charge.
Naturally, towing and payload capacities are going to be very important to future owners of the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV. The consumer-focused RST model has a maximum towing capacity of 4,534 kg (10,000 lbs.) and 590 kg of payload-hauling ability.
2024 Silverado EV Features
The truck’s high capacity battery pack and high-performing electric motors aren’t the only cutting-edge technology that will be employed by the Silverado EV’s introductory edition. Some of the new features that will be standard equipment on the coming Chevy electric truck include:
- Four-wheel steering
- Automatic adaptable air suspension
- 17-inch LCD infotainment screen
- 11-inch digital instrument display
Chevy is including the Multi-Flex tailgate with the 2024 Silverado EV RST First Edition. However, that isn’t the only highly adaptable feature that the automaker is making available. The wall separating the rear seat from the cargo bed can be manipulated to accommodate items more than 3 meters long. The automaker calls this the Multi-Flex Midgate.
