Tesla too slow?
Strom monsters come: Now pick-ups are supposed to inspire Americans for electric cars
GM Electric pickup: Chevrolet Silverado eV
Site author Stefan Grundhoff
Large, heavy, consumption-intensive: Even with battery drive, pick-ups do not exactly become eco-mobile. Nevertheless, the US manufacturers know that only with electrical pick-ups will the drive prevail-and Tesla of all things could be too slow.
Once again, Tesla CEO Elon Musk had to move his electric pick-up, which was presented more than two years ago, again last autumn. The carmaker from California, recently moved to Austin / Texas, does not really comply with his futuristically styled cybertruck. This takes note of the national competition with a lot of benevolence, because the so-called full-size pick-ups could become an electro-Gamechanger in the United States; means that the sheet could turn.
Tesla’s pick -up shifts – now they come "Big Three"
Turning this time is called electromobility, because the model S, Model X, but especially Model Y and Model 3, have so far been particularly important in the innovative coastal regions with high incomes, this could be used with Ford F-150 Lightning, Chevrolet Silverado eV and Dodge Ram to change.
GM Chevrolet Silverado eV
The US market is a pick-up mecca, because for four decades the Ford F series with the volume model F-15. Sometimes more than a million are sold by the mass pick-up each year, which the craftsmen with its length of at least 5.30 meters is just as enthusiastic as the leisure fans who are crazy about leisure time.
USA are the pick-up mecca
In the second and three places in the approval statistics of the Chevrolet Silverado and the RAM 1500 from Dodge are. It took a while, but now all three charging area bestsellers come as an electrical version and the American mass market could turn – switch to electromobility.

Before the middle of the year, the first model of the Ford F-15 Lightning will come to the customers. At the beginning of 2023, the Chevrolet Silverado eV presented at the Consumer Electronic Show and even Dodge, previously electro-more, will only be with its electrical ram until 2024 Let it wait so as not to lose the connection completely, because the main competitor of Tesla will hardly be delayed endlessly, even if Elon Musk had to push it to the end of the year from 2021 – not for the first time. The electropapst is currently not after the long -term Tesla Pick Up called Cybertruck
Tesla until 2023 at the start with the cybertruck?
This was already presented at the end of 2019 and should reach its first customers at the latest last year. It didn’t get anything with that. Finally, the Tesla CEO had to admit that the electro-pick-up with design refreshments on a triangle continues to be delayed. Before the end of 2022, hardly a model should whir on the streets and, after the numerous delays of the other Tesla models, some fear that it will be in 2023 before the electrical pick-up rolls into significant quantities to customers who for 100 US Can pre -order dollars.

In the spring of 2023, the Chevrolet Silverado EV also followed the USA’s second -serving pick up as an electrical version. "First of all, in addition to the First Edition in spring 2023, we will present our work truck," says GM CEO Mary Barra, "the electric Silverado RST follows in autumn.“Their technical frame data make you want more for private individuals and traders, because while the basic model of the 510 hp work truck as a commercial vehicle at just under 40.$,000 should start, there will be finely orchestrated different performance levels and battery sizes.
The RST top model offers up to 664 hp, 1050 Nm and thanks to the new Ultium platform, on which the Hummer eV will also be on the road, there are ranges of up to 400 miles-converted 650 kilometers. On board there is a 10.2 kW loader for the electro-pick-up on the new Ultium platform and the battery pack in the underbody with up to 350 kW is strengthened on the quick charging station. Within ten minutes, the North American should be able to refuel for another 160 kilometers. In addition to the lavish space in the passenger cell, the Chevrolet Silverado EV offers a fixed glass roof and on the back of the cabin can be opened towards the loading area, so that longer objects can be loaded forward from here. Air suspension and the optional all -wheel drive ensure comfort and agility.

The situation is a little different for the third in the federal government – Dodge with his RAM -. Stellatis CEO Carlos Tavares does not only focus on electric drive and criticized the one-sided focus on the current repeated. So it can also be explained that Dodge does not want to bring his electric ram to the customers until 2024. Visually, the RAM 1500-E should differ more than its competitors from the corresponding brothers. The technical basis is the new STLA platform, which should protect the battery packs in the underbody and enable range of 700 kilometers. When it comes to performance, everyday benefits and off -road, it will hardly be left behind the domestic competition.
