GM said the electric Silverado is expected to offer customers a range of more than 400 miles on a full charge.

General Motors Co is planning to start production of Chevrolet Silverado electric pickup truck late next year at its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant, a source familiar with the U.S. automaker's plan said on Tuesday.

The vehicle is expected to go on sale in early 2023 as a 2024 model, another source said.

The company declined to comment on the production timeline for Silverado. Its announcement that the trucks will be made at the Michigan plant, also known Factory Zero, sent GM shares to a record $62.45.

Prior to this, GM had said that electric Hummer pickup truck and automated EV shuttle, the Cruise Origin, will be made at the plant.
