With the auto market shifting towards alternative fuel systems, namely plug-in hybrids, electric vehicles (EVs), and battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), we’re going to see a lot of new additions to some popular lineups. Some automakers are going as far as using hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in their upcoming models. General Motors, through its Chevrolet auto brand, once supplied the army with hydrogen fuel cell Chevrolet Colorado models for testing. Chevrolet is one of many automakers with a plan to introduce a new EV lineup. Joining the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV, an all-electric Chevrolet Silverado has already entered the mix, and two more EVs are one the way, the Blazer EV and Equinox EV.
Chevrolet Silverado EV
Unveiled during the spring of 2022, the Silverado EV is the first of the upcoming EV lineup from Silverado. Still the same pickup truck we love, but going green, this truck won’t slow anyone down. Able to drive up to 400 miles on a full charge (estimated), the Silverado EV can generate over 660 horsepower and offers over 780 lb-ft of torque when properly equipped. Built upon a new platform, the Ultium Platform, many models coming from General Motors, and thus Chevrolet, will also become some of the first software-defined vehicles, operated by General Motor’s Ultifi.
A vehicle with its own operating system (OS)? That’s really something else, but it sounds like the vision many automakers had if the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is any indication. Every major automaker talked about a “digital mobile living space”, where consumers could bring their digital lives on the road. Ultifi will start by offering consumers personalization options, new and exciting apps to drivers on demand, and seamless upgrades for software improvements while sharing the spotlight with Google built-in with Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play. The Silverado EV also continues to make EV charging convenient at home and on the road.
These days, the number one EV owners worry about is charging up. With an already long driving range, the Chevrolet Silverado EV can make use of: (1) Level 1 120-volt charging – the same outlets we plug appliances into, (2) Level 2 240-volt charging – now with home installation available to charge in hours versus overnight, and (3) DC Public Fast Charging that can provide an estimated 100 miles in just ten minutes. Able to plan ahead with the myChevorolet Mobile App with Energy Assist, drivers can map routes, find compatible public charging stations locations, and even see the availability of charging stations in real-time. How’s that for convenient?
Speaking of convenient, as we said, the Silverado EV is still the same great pickup truck, able to store items with all kinds of configurations. The standard truck bed is 5-feet 11-inches, and with a 60/40 flip-and-fold seat, that space opens up to 9 feet in length. An extra foot and 10 inches can be added with the Multi-Flex Midgate with pass-through with the Multi-Flex Tailgate and load stop. With a maximum towing capacity of up to 10,000 pounds when properly equipped (up to 20,000 pounds on a later WT model), this Silverado EV is a powerful pickup truck.
With an official unveiling coming up soon (July 18, 2022), the all-new Blazer EV already looks stunning with the little teaser on the Chevrolet manufacturer website. Available in a performance boosting SS trim, Chevrolet is calling out the competition with its all-electric midsize SUV. All-electric, stylish, and engineered for performance? We’ll know more when the Blazer EV is revealed, but orders won’t be fulfilled until the spring of 2023.
Another first for the lineup, the Equinox is also getting its own electric variant. Already known as Chevy’s top-selling SUV, the Equinox EV takes on a futuristic look with an innovative infotainment system one a large display, matched to an all-digital instrument cluster making up the driver dashboard. Even though this baby won’t be available for some time, pricing has already been announced to have a starting MSRP of around $30,000 for the Equinox EV LT trim. A performance-based RS trim will be available in the autumn of 2023, pricing yet to be determined.
The race to performance-oriented EVs has begun, and it should be a crazy one to watch. Can automakers really make all-electric vehicles that can also burn rubber? Stay informed with Chevrolet and other performance automakers when you follow us on NowCar social media.
