Chevrolet Silverado Electric Pickup in the making, the Hummer EV SUV will be built at the Factory ZERO plant

6 April 2021, 19:21:13

Chevrolet Silverado Electric Pickup in the making, the Hummer EV SUV will be built at the Factory ZERO plantGeneral Motors President Mark Reuss today announced Chevrolet will introduce a Silverado electric pickup truck that will be built at the company's Factory ZERO assembly plant in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan. Reuss also confirmed the recently revealed GMC HUMMER EV SUV will be built at Factory ZERO.

The Chevrolet Silverado electric full-size pickup is designed from the ground up to be an EV, harnessing the best of the Ultium Platform and Silverado's proven capability. The electric Silverado will offer customers a GM-estimated range of more than 400 miles on a full charge. Retail and fleet versions will offer customers a variety of options and are expected to be in high demand.

The 2024 HUMMER EV SUV is the next chapter in the HUMMER EV story, offering more options for customers to tailor the truck to their lifestyles, while continuing to encourage them to forge new paths with zero emissions. Driven by the Ultium Platform, the new HUMMER EV SUV launches with the exclusive Edition 1, offering greater customer choice to equip the vehicle for optimum efficiency or maximum off-road capability. GMC HUMMER EVs were envisioned to be the most capable and compelling electric supertrucks.

In January 2020, GM announced it was investing $2.2 billion in its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant to produce a variety of all-electric trucks and SUVs. In October 2020, GM renamed the plant Factory ZERO, which reflects the facility’s significance in advancing GM's vision of a future with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion. Factory ZERO is the launchpad for GM’s multi-brand EV strategy. The facility has advanced technology and tooling and was designed with a focus on sustainable manufacturing. The GMC HUMMER EV pickup and the Cruise Origin, a purpose-built, all-electric and shared self-driving vehicle will also be built at Factory ZERO. Production of the GMC HUMMER EV pickup will begin later this year.

Factory ZERO is undergoing a complete renovation and retooling, the largest ever for a GM manufacturing facility. The plant's paint and body shops and general assembly area are receiving comprehensive upgrades, including new machines, conveyors, controls and tooling. The plant has expanded to over 4.5 million square feet.

GM plans to deliver more than 1 million electric vehicles globally by 2025 and earn EV market leadership in North America. With the company's Ultium Platform, virtual development tools and technology, GM has reduced vehicle development times by nearly 50 percent to just 26 months.
