- gm placed a previously unseen electric pickup behind chief ev officer travis hester during an investor video conference today.
- the chevy-badged electric truck is likely to be one of the four new evs from the automaker that gm says have had their development moved up.
- a four-door ev truck was expected to go into production in 2025, and although we know that timeline has been changed, we're not sure exactly how soon this pickup will see the light of day.
during a video conference meant to highlight gm’s new, faster approach to ev development, the automaker gave us all a peek at future vehicles. among them, the hummer suv, which we hadn't seen before, and this mysterious chevy electric truck that we’ve only heard about and were originally told would go into production in 2025. now it seems that timetable has been moved up (although we don’t know by how much), and this pickup is likely to be joining gm's lineup sooner than expected.[editoriallinks id='7b58b257-a1d0-4803-ba4b-92416dd62931' align='left'][/editoriallinks]
the truck was positioned behind chief ev officer travis hester. from what we can see, the vehicle has a bit of corvette dna in the headlights with a little bit of vette seen in the front fascia. the angled cutline from the cab to the bed reminds us of what we've seen on the new hummer ev and of course, it was previously seen on the now discontinued chevy avalanche.[image id='5677f943-a7b2-4d26-818b-5a8b47b2537d' mediaid='3d7579a1-b16f-4623-971e-5c1c8ea84245' align='center' size='small' share='false' caption='composite image from the two photos above.

the screen grab of this pickup shows an aggressive stance with flared fenders and sharp lines along the side of the vehicle. of course, some or all of these design elements could change by the time this ev pickup is officially unveiled sometime in the future. what we do know, is that gm says a chevy ev truck is coming, and today we saw what could be that vehicle.
