2024 Chevy Silverado EV Has an EPA-Estimated Range of up to 450 Miles
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Work Truck has an EPA-estimated range of up to 450 miles.
While Chevy previously estimated the Work Truck (WT) would get 400 miles per charge, the 450-mile figure is the EPA-certified estimate.
Set to launch first, the Silverado EV WT for fleet customers boasts 510 horsepower and 615 pound-feet of torque.
CLARIFICATION 5/19/23: A Chevy spokesperson has clarified that the Silverado EV Work Truck's previously claimed 400 miles of range was its own estimate and the new 450-mile figure is the result of EPA certification.
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will be able to go farther on a full charge than initially expected, at least the version that's available to fleet customers. Chevy has announced the base-level Work Truck trim has an estimated range of 450 miles, according to the EPA.
Previously, Chevy estimated the Silverado EV Work Truck (WT) had a range of 400 miles. However, now the EPA has certified the WT's estimate at 450 miles per charge. Meanwhile, the snazzier and more powerful RST model stands pat with an EPA-estimated 400 miles of range. The RST is expected to have a battery pack as large as 200 kWh, but it's unclear whether the fleet-oriented WT will have more capacity that unlocks the extra range.
Car and Driver reached out to a Chevy spokesperson to find out what led to the WT's extended range, but they would only confirm that the higher number is the result of the EPA's certification along with "real-world testing and development over the past several months."
Among the Silverado EV lineup, the WT will first be made available to fleet customers sometime this summer. Its all-wheel-drive, dual-motor powertrain develops 510 horsepower and 615 pound-feet of torque. The WT for fleets also offers DC fast-charging speeds of up to 350 kW, which Chevy claims can add 100 miles of range in 10 minutes. After the initial launch, the company plans to offer a WT model for fleets that can tow up to 20,000 pounds.
Pricing for the fleet-oriented 2024 Silverado EV Work Truck hasn't been made official. However, Chevy is currently taking orders with refundable $100 reservations on its consumer site, which also lists the WT's starting price at $41,595.
