The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will feature bidirectional charging. The all-electric pickup truck will be capable of providing backup energy to a plethora of sources. As one of Chevrolet’s most powerful EVs, the Silverado EV is set to launch with two available trims, the base WT and the RST First Edition. The Silverado EV WT will be the first to debut in the spring of 2023 while the RST will arrive later. General Motors will also be partnering with the residential solar company SunPower to develop a home energy system that is compatible with the Silverado EV. We’ll take a closer look at this partnership and see how it will affect the Silverado’s charging capabilities.
2024 Silverado EV Will Feature Bidirectional Charging Capabilities
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will feature bidirectional charging capabilities. Set to launch in 2023, the all-electric pickup will be available in two trims: the base WT and the RST First Edition. The WT trim will debut in the spring of 2023 while the RST First Edition will arrive later. The Silverado EV WT will come equipped with a dual motor setup that’s capable of 510 horsepower and 625lb-ft of torque. The Silverado EV RST First Edition will offer increased performance with 664 horsepower and 780lb-ft of torque.
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV First Edition will feature a 24-module battery pack that offers 200 kWh of capacity. This battery pack will provide the electric pickup with 400 miles of battery range. Owners will also be able to charge their Silverado EV at up to 350 kW which will add 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes. In an attempt to further the Silverado’s capability, General Motors (GM) will be partnering with the residential solar company SunPower to develop a home energy system. This system will be compatible with the Silverado EV and will be available for those who purchase the all-electric pickup.
Together, GM and SunPower will provide owners of the 2024 Chevy Silverado with a reliable home electric system. If consumers opt for it, SunPower will install rooftop solar panels. These will work in unison with the Silverado to provide a constant source of energy. Owners can use their pickup to charge other objects including other EVs. They will also be able to export energy from their pickup to their homes to offset electricity costs. If owners undergo a power outage, the Silverado EV can be used as a primary source of energy. The 2024 Silverado EV WT is set to start at an MSRP of $40,000 (plus destination fee).
