DETROIT — General Motors plans to build the Chevrolet Silverado EV starting in early 2023, a top executive said Thursday.
Doug Parks, executive vice president for global product development, purchasing and supply chain, provided production timing at Deutsche Bank's AutoTech Conference. Automotive News reported in July that the Silverado EV was expected to go on sale in 2023.
GM plans to reveal the electric pickup during CEO Mary Barra's keynote speech at CES on Jan. 5.
The Silverado EV will compete with a cascade of upcoming electric pickups, including the Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian's R1T and the Tesla Cybertruck.
