The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is the next big thing from American automaker Chevrolet. Chevy is electrifying its popular Silverado nameplate to compete with rivals like the Ford F-150 Lightning. Here are four reasons why the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is going to be a game changer for Chevrolet, General Motors, and the full-size pickup truck segment.
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV has insane range
According to Car and Driver, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV has a max range estimate of a whopping 400 miles. The Ford F-150 Lightning’s max range estimate is only 300 miles. Today, popular electric vehicles can typically get between 200-250 miles before needing to be recharged.
The Chevrolet Silverado EV’s range is mind-blowing compared to its competition. Its rivals won’t be able to compete unless they introduce an even larger battery pack in the future. The Silverado EV bridges the gap between electric vehicles and gas-powered vehicles in terms of range. The full-size electric pickup truck’s 400 miles of range is much closer to the range of gas-powered vehicles than many of its main competitors.
The Chevy Silverado EV is a second chance for Chevy to produce a popular EV
Chevrolet had a rough year in 2021 after the Chevy Bolt’s battery debacle. Chevy Bolt battery fires cost the American automaker millions of dollars. The Chevy Bolt fell from grace, and Bolt fires made headlines time and time again in 2021.
The Chevy Silverado EV is Chevrolet’s chance to produce an electric vehicle that isn’t prone to catching on fire. The Bolt was a huge point of controversy for the American automaker, and a relaunch may not save the nameplate. If the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV is a success, then it could make up for the epic failure of the Chevy Bolt in the eyes of the American consumer.
The Chevy Silverado EV can disrupt full-size pickup truck rankings
The Chevy Silverado hasn’t fared well in recent full-size pickup trank rankings in recent years. The full-size pickup truck segment has been dominated by the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500. Chevy’s full-size truck hasn’t been able to break through and achieve dominance in sales or popularity. All that could change when the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado arrives.
The Chevy Silverado EV could disrupt full-size pickup truck rankings, or at least electric full-size pickup truck rankings depending on the capabilities of its most affordable model. Its sleek futuristic design and awesome wheels are on par with what we’ve seen from the F-150 Lightning. The Silverado EV has as good a chance as any new electric pickup at beating out the competition and ascending to the top.
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will produce mind-blowing power
One reason why the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is going to be a game changer is because of its massive horsepower. The electric pickup truck’s most powerful model will make 664 horsepower. It will be incredibly quick, thanks to all that power.
The Chevy Silverado EV will produce power that trumps the Ford F-150 Lightning. The F-150 Lightning Platinum only makes 536 horsepower. Who would have thought that an electric Silverado would be such a powerhouse?
Chevy’s electric truck has the potential to be class-leading
The electric pickup truck has the potential to be class-leading because of its unique capabilities. The Silverado EV’s range and power are exciting for the future of electric vehicles because of how far the technology has progressed. Will the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV best the Ford F-150 Lightning and Ram 1500 EV?
