The Chevrolet Silverado EV made its big debut last week, and we’ve spilled no shortage of ink in delivering all the details to you both big and small. We even went on the radio to talk about it.
For those that have been curious about the first-ever electric Silverado, Chevrolet recently hosted a livestream event, which offered a virtual walk-around of the truck and showcased the numerous features the truck will have on offer – the Silverado EV RST First Edition in particular.
The virtual walk-around covers much of the information we already know about the Chevrolet Silverado EV. After the tour was over, questions about the new truck were answered, and it looks like there is still a lot of information Chevy is unable to share at the moment, like how many charges the batteries are rated for. However, since the truck is still in development, some questions people asked during the stream will hopefully help give GM more information on what customers want to know or want to have in the truck and will assist with further development.

2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV: Details
The all-new Chevrolet Silverado EV will be built within the recently reopened Detroit Hamtramck Factory Zero assembly plant, where the Hummer EV is currently being produced. The 2024 Silverado EV features independent front and rear suspension, coupled with an automatic adaptive air suspension system. In addition, the truck features four-wheel steering, enabling the vehicle to have a reduced turning radius and more maneuverability.
The Silverado EV has a plethora of storage with a folding Midgate, like what was seen within the avalanche. When combining the Multi-Flex tailgate with the Midgate, the bed length can go from 5.9 feet to 10 feet 10 inches. Paired with a bed cover, all items can be kept safe and dry in any condition. More storage can be found in the front of the Silverado EV. With no engine to take up that space, the Silverado EV features an e-Trunk which provides even more storage for everyday items one wouldn’t typically place in a truck bed, such as groceries or luggage.
