GM’s Chevrolet brand will introduce a Silverado electric pick-up truck that will be built at the company’s Factory ZERO assembly plant in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan. It will offer customers an estimated range of more than 400 miles on a full charge.
GM has also confirmed the recently revealed GMC HUMMER EV SUV will be built at Factory ZERO. In January 2020, GM announced it was investing $2.2 billion in its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant to produce a variety of all-electric trucks and SUVs.
In October 2020, GM renamed the plant Factory ZERO.
General Motors President, Mark Reuss, says: “The vehicles coming from Factory ZERO will change the world, and how the world views electric vehicles. The GMC HUMMER EV SUV joins its stablemate in the realm of true supertrucks, and Chevrolet will take everything Chevy’s loyal truck buyers love about Silverado — and more — and put it into an electric pickup that will delight retail and commercial customers alike.”
GM plans to deliver more than 1 million electric vehicles globally by 2025. With the company’s Ultium Platform, virtual development tools and technology, GM says it has reduced vehicle development times by nearly 50 percent to just 26 months.
