Nearly 85,000 Silverado EV Work Trucks Have Been Ordered

2023 Chevrolet Silverado EV | Ft. Stockton, TX

Since announcing the production of the all-new electric Chevrolet Silverado EV, General Motors has made nearly 85,000 Silverado EV WT reservations for roughly 370 companies. To gain customers’ confidence and ease the transition to an electric fleet, a team of GM Fleet Experts has become the main source of solution-based assistance. These experts are listening to their customers’ concerns and taking note of what people want.

Consider this proactivity a foreshadowing of what the Chevy Silverado EV WT has to offer its future truck owners, in the name of trust and reliability. The Silverado EV’s advanced technologies are backed by Ultifi, a Linux-based software platform that enables fast and frequent software updates — so you don’t have to worry about tech bugs bogging down your workflow.

Speaking of innovative tech, GM’s Ultium battery platform optimizes the Silverado EV’s handling experience, even when trailering, thanks to its well-engineered weight distribution and low center of gravity. The Ultium Platform also means you’ll get up to a 400-mile driving range, when fully charged.[1] GM is further easing customers’ concerns by offering various charging options, like standard DC Fast Charging capability.

To top it all off, the Silverado EV WT has the muscle to back up its electrical prowess. EV WT models will be able to tow between 8,000 to 20,000 pounds,[2] crank out 510 horsepower, and reach up to 615 lb-ft of torque.[3]

If you want to learn more about why so many others already trust GM to build their electric fleet of work trucks, contact our friendly team at Amistad Motors in Fort Stockton, Texas.
