Chevrolet is working on a full-size electric pickup and is participating in the list of brands where such a vehicle is under development.
General Motors announced that the electric pickup is under development as part of its 10th annual sustainability report. The automaker said it was on the right track to spend more than $ 20 billion on its electric and autonomous vehicle programs between 2020 and 2025.
In a section of the report that highlighted the company's electric vehicles, General Motors said Chevrolet was “building on the success of the Chevrolet Bolt EV 2020” with the development of the Chevrolet BET Truck, which will be the first full-size Pickup for the brand. The vehicle is said to offer a range of more than 400 miles on a single charge.
The report also shows that the brand is working on a mid-size electric SUV and the Chevrolet Bolt EUV, the first non-Cadillac brand to offer Super Cruise driver assistance technology.
General Motors continues to strive to launch 20 new electric vehicles by 2023.
Future electric pickups
The Chevrolet BET Truck is not the first electric pickup announced by General Motors. This award goes to the GMC Hummer, which is expected to be available in the fall of 2021.
Other electric pickups under development are a variant of the Ford F-150, Lordstown Endurance and Tesla Cybertruck, all three of which are expected to arrive in 2021. Digital Trends has asked General Motors for information about the planned release of the Chevrolet BET Truck window and we will update this article as soon as we hear.
