General Motors announced that it will produce an all-electric Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck alongside the launch of the new EV version of Hummer. The site for its electric vehicle production will be its new flagship assembly plant called Factory Zero in Michigan, which is under construction in Detroit.

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 super trucks, 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,” said GM President Mark Reuss at the announcement. 

General Motors has named the first electric pick-up model the BET Truck, which will give a range of 644 kilometres on a full charge. The BET Truck will be equipped with its new Ultium battery and drivetrain technology which is used to design it from the ground up.

It is expected that the new pick up truck will be cheaper than the Hummer EV, although its concept version hasn’t been declared by the company. The exact dates for its production haven’t been revealed, but General Motors has promised to announce it within a few months. The BET Truck will face competitions from the likes of Rivian RIT, the Tesla Cybertruck and Ford F-150.
