An electric, 400-mile range Chevy Silverado was initially teased in April, and now the company has shared plans for the official release of the electric truck.

Chevrolet has announced an electric Silverado variant, set to be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022, according to a press release. The electric truck’s reveal will take place specifically on January 5, 2022, when General Motors (GM) CEO Mary Barra gives the company’s opening keynote.

Last month, GM also unveiled its Ultium electric vehicle (EV) motor platform, after teasing plans for a new line of EVs based on a single drive platform.

The news also comes after halting production of the Chevy Bolt over fire risks, though it later continued Bolt EV production, asking owners to “leave ample space” when parking.

While Tesla managed to grow during Q3 despite chip shortages, GM and other companies struggled amidst supply issues over a necessary semiconductor chip that has plagued automakers around the world for much of this year.

On the brighter side of the company’s future, GM also shared plans to double its annual revenues by 2030 as it widens its EV offerings, with the first drives of its electric GMC Hummer set to start delivering to customers in 2022.
