After we wrote about the Chevrolet electric pickup truck that appeared behind GM’s Chief EV Officer, Travis Hester, we imagined it was only a matter of time for the primary rendering of that car to seem. It was certainly a matter of time but in addition of expertise and expertise. Fortunately, the Electrical Design YouTube channel presenter had all three and was capable of make a video with what the brand new electrical pickup truck could also be.
The designer primarily based his rendering on two screenshots taken on the Barclays International Automotive Convention, the identical occasion the place General Motors introduced at the very least three new EVs: the SUV model of the GMC Hummer EV, an Equinox-sized SUV, and the electrical pickup truck we talked about.
Though it was not a lot to work with, the screenshots may very well be mixed and allowed the Electrical Design video to current a rendering that appears to be very correct. We are going to solely make certain about it when Chevrolet discloses the actual deal, however we suspect that won’t be the case provided that GM promotes large design adjustments to the car.
The Chevy electrical pickup truck will in all probability be a extra standard model of the Hummer EV, probably with out Crab Mode and the detachable roof. That can make it cheaper and nearer to different opponents, even when which will make its improvement time longer than that of the GMC electrical pickup truck.
GM recently said the Hummer EV would take only two years of development. One of many causes for that was that it might be principally a succesful off-roader with out different merchandise to beat or any price requirement. The Chevy electrical pickup truck is not going to have the identical benefits.
As we talked about in our earlier article, the Chevy electrical pickup truck is both the brand new technology of the Silverado or a stand-alone car, a distinct technique from that Ford will undertake with the F-150. Relating to design features, we’ll depart them with for the designer to share within the video.
