General Motors Announces Plan for 400-Mile Electric Pickup Truck
As reported by InsideEVs, General Motors is developing a 400-mile electric pickup truck. This was silently announced in their annual sustainability report. The (unnamed) Chevrolet will only be one of the 20 models set to release by 2023, with the exact time of release still up in the air. General Motors has reportedly spent over $20 billion for the development of these electric vehicles.
On page 39 of the sustainability report, it is disclosed that the truck will be a full-size model. The vehicle is estimated to be able to travel roughly 400 miles when completely charged. General Motors is currently working on Ultium battery technology. While no other details have been released yet, we can assume that the Chevrolet BET truck will use this.
Chevrolet BET Truck, which will be the brand’s ﬁrst electric full-size pickup, oﬀering 400+ miles of range on a single charge.
Much like other cars in the EV market, the demand for electric pickup trucks has been steadily growing. Other brands like Tesla and Ford are huge competitors in this industry, alongside startups such as Rivian and Nikola.
