Fleet Buyers are Hot for The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 EV


Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the first electric truck from GM, but buyers are already scrambling to reserve one, well ahead of the 2023 launch.

All hints indicate that Chevrolet is at the doorstep of a huge success. The upcoming Silverado EV has generated a huge demand surge, especially from companies seeking to upgrade their fleets and benefit from GM fleet special offers.

GM fleet officials boast that the entire stock was sold out minutes after it was put on sale, including the most expensive variation; The Silverado EV RST. Even if the new truck won’t be available before the start of 2023. 

According to the carmaker’s data, 370 companies have made 85.000 reservations.  GM Fleet VP Ed Peper explained these numbers by saying: “fleet companies need replacement vehicles. They are tools of their trade and tools of their business, just like laptop computers are. “

Ed Peper was very optimistic about the company’s future: “Our demand has never been greater than it is right now” he said. “We are going to be up significantly more than the rest of the industry.”

This surge in sales figures came as a relief after some rough patches encountered during the last couple of years. GM fleet registered a 7% increase compared to the same period last year, and a 28% overall increase compared to the start of 2020.

It’s worth noting that the Silverado EV isn’t the first truck to step into the electric truck arena. the Ford F-150 Lightning and R1T Rivian have already established themselves as the first trucks in this new market. However, moderate production capacity and preference variations will give the new Silverado EV a good chance to take a decent share of the EV truck market.
