GM Announces EV Silverado, Equinox, and Blazer
General Motors plans to launch three Chevrolet electric vehicles next year, priced from $30,000 to more than $100,000. GM CEO Mary Barra shared the automaker’s plans as she unveiled the launch edition of the Chevy Silverado electric pickup during her CES keynote.
The highlight of Barra’s keynote was the unveiling of the Silverado EV, which will go on sale in 2023 in two varieties: a work truck starting at $41,595 and a fully loaded retail trim priced at $106,695. Each price includes shipping. Both trucks will offer more than 400 miles of driving range per battery charge. Also in 2023, GM plans to launch an electric Chevy Equinox starting at about $30,000 and a larger Chevy Blazer EV. GM confirmed 2023 launch timing for the Cadillac Celestiq ultraluxury electric sedan as well.
The automaker has said it plans to launch 30 EVs globally through 2025, with two-thirds coming to the U.S. GM’s next-generation EVs are powered by its proprietary Ultium battery platform, developed through a joint venture with LG Energy Solution. GM has committed $35 billion to electric and autonomous vehicle development through 2025. The automaker aims to launch a fully-electric portfolio a decade later.
