The future of driving is electric and General Motors is paving the way with innovation as it readies the production of Silverado & Sierra EV Trucks at its Orion Plant.
Currently, the Orion Assembly Plant in Orion Township, Michigan, manufactures the electrified Chevrolet Bolt and Bolt EUV. With a $4 billion investment, though, the Orion plant will be able to upgrade its facilities and process to handle the demands of building the Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV. The sizeable investment in the Orion plant will also bring about 2,350 new job roles. With new employees and current employees, the number of workers will be approximately 3,350.
Highlights of the Silverado EV
The 2024 Silverado EV will feature a 400-mile range when operating on a full charge, notes GM. The 2024 Silverado EV will first be available in two trim levels — Work Truck and RST. When properly equipped, the RST will boast a maximum trailering capacity of 10,000 pounds and generate ratings of 664 horsepower and 780 lb-ft of torque.
We will have to wait a little longer for details on the 2024 electric GMC Sierra EV. It makes its debut in the Denali trim later in 2022, but as soon as details are released, we will let you know!
