2025 Chevy Silverado EV Rumored Get 664HP Power

2025 Chevy Silverado EV

GM plans to produce 400,000 EVs in North America during 2022 and 2023. It sounds like a considerable number, and rightly so, but it may not help the Silverado EV’s turnaround time.

If they can double that production to 150,000 units by 2024, that means most, if not all, upfront orders for Silverado will arrive in late 2024 or early 2025.

GM has many EV products, including the GMC Hummer, Cadillac Lyric, and Chevy Bolt. And there’s the upcoming GMC Sierra EV as well.

Increasing production is good and needed, but spread across multiple vehicle production lines will not speed up the Silverado EV in time to meet demand.

According to Reuters, production of the all-electric Cadillac Lyriq is expected to increase to 25,000 units this year (up from 3,200). Production of the GMC Hummer EV is expected to increase to 21,000 units (from 3,800), and after being shaken by battery recall issues, Chevy Bolt is back in production as another EV.

Then there’s the shocking news: GM will be putting out EV versions of the Equinox and Blazer before the Silverado EV.

There are already about 50,000 reservations for Hummer EVs and 110,000 for Silverado EVs. Even with the mentioned improvements, it still puts GM behind the demand versus output curve.

2025 Chevy Silverado EV Performance

The only similarity between the two vehicles is a portion of their names. The Silverado EV and Silverado are both short beds with the same length and height.

A different factory is used to assemble the Silverado EV. Instead, it expands on the GMC Hummer EV’s more limited basic design.

That entails an available 200.0 kWh battery pack with an estimated 400-mile range, independent front and rear suspension, front and rear electric motors (though only two, not three Hummers), and these features.

Like the Hummer EV, the Silverado EV also boasts an electrical design capable of charging at 800 volts and 350 kW, which, according to Chevrolet, allows it to add 100 miles in just 10 minutes.

It should be noted that a substantial range figure is for trucks with 24-inch wheels, which is standard at the first available trim level, the RST.

WT has 18-inch wheels, and although Chevy said WT would be available with a range of 400 miles, it has not discussed the effect of those wheels on range estimates.

The RST has a driving mode dubbed Wide Open Watts that allows 664 horsepower and 780 pound-feet of torque in contrast to WT’s 510 horsepower and 615 pound-feet.

In this mode, Chevy says zero acceleration to 60 mph will be better than 4.5 seconds, which makes it faster than Ford claims for the most powerful F-150 Lightning.

The RST should have at least the WT output, even though Chevy hasn’t specified how much power it has in regular mode.

Chevy’s MultiFlex backdoor is also an option for the Silverado EV. The rear door may be arranged in a variety of ways to both increase the length of the bed and serve as a step.

The bed was originally 5.9 feet long, but once the center door was removed and the rear door was placed in its bed-lengthening position, the length grew to 10 feet, 10 inches.

The interior of the RST is vibrantly colored, has a fixed glass roof, and is red, white, and blue. The center console, which has multiple USB outlets, has more storage space thanks to the column-mounted shifter.

GM’s Super Cruise driver assistance technology comes with RST. This makes it possible to drive hands-free on mapped freeways and use cameras to monitor the driver’s attention.

Towing Capacity

The crane ratings are ten thousand pounds for RST and 8,000 pounds for WT. These figures match those of the F-150 Lightning, but according to Chevy, future Silverado EV models will also be able to tow 20,000 pounds.

Instead, the payload rating of the Silverado EV, weighing 1,200 pounds for WT and 1,300 pounds for RST, is lower than the Lightning rating.

2025 Chevy Silverado EV Price

Chevy’s quoted prices—$105,000 for the fully charged RST on display and $39,900 for the fleet-oriented base and WT—do not include the destination, which is $1695 on the current non-electric Silverado.

Chevy said these two prices represent the Silverado EV price spectrum and that the upcoming trim level will be somewhere in between.
