GM is planning to launch a full-size electric Chevrolet pickup according to its most recent sustainability report. The report, which is its 10th annual edition, describes the coming vehicle as; “Chevrolet BET Truck, which will be the brand’s first electric full-size pickup, offering 400+ miles of range on a single charge.”
The report doesn’t say when the truck will be available. However, it could be one of 20 electric vehicles that GM plans to release by 2023.
GM CEO, Mary Barra, had said in November 2019 that the company would release an electric pickup before late 2021. At the time, it was assumed that she was referring to the Hummer EV, but it could be this Chevy pickup.
GM had announced that it was targeting a range of up to “400 miles or more” for its electric vehicles while unveiling its new EV platform earlier in 2020.

The company added that it would change the chemistry of its battery cells to reduce the amount of cobalt they use, thus making them more cost-efficient.
Electric vehicles seem to be the future of the automobile industry. GM rivals have already announced plans for their own electric trucks. Tesla in November 2019 unveiled its Cybertruck with three versions expected to come in a variety of mileage.
The coming Tesla versions will have a mileage of 250 miles, 300 miles, and 500 miles and will launch in late 2021. Another automobile powerhouse, Ford said in June 2020 that an electric version of its F-150 pickup will go on sale in 2022.
The electric Chevy pickup will surely be one of 20 electric vehicles GM plans to release by 2023. There’s no further description of the truck in the sustainability report, and no word on when it will be available. However, many of its customers hope that the truck will have the towing option in its electric trucks.
