Change is coming fast to the automotive industry, and all signs point to a fully electric future in Texas and across the United States. When the time comes to make your move to an EV, don’t trust a vanity brand or any company with less than the reputation of Chevrolet. Granite Hills Chevrolet in Llano is excited to be part of the bowtie brand’s grand plans for the future, and we’re here to help show you the benefits of upgrading to a Chevrolet electric vehicle.
Why Buy a Chevrolet EV at Granite Hills Chevrolet in Llano, TX
There’s no shortage of reasons why Chevrolet is one of today’s top electric vehicle brands, and that’s due in part to the fact that there’s no shortage of choices. Chevrolet has one of the fastest-growing EV portfolios in the game today, including these current and upcoming options:
- Chevrolet Bolt EV
- Chevrolet Bolt EUV
- Chevrolet Blazer EV
- Chevrolet Equinox EV
- Chevrolet Silverado EV
Though this is just the start of what’s to come, Chevy already has one of the most versatile electric lineups you’ll find today.
Meet the All-New Chevrolet Silverado EV
Trucks are a big deal in Texas, and you’d be hard-pressed to argue that there’s any truck out there — engine or no — that’s more impressive than the new Chevrolet Silverado EV. Arriving in Llano in 2023, the first-ever all-electric Silverado is a powerhouse, offering up to 754 horsepower and 785 lb-ft of torque and a blistering 0-60 mph with Wide Open Watts.
Capabilities? There’s not much the all-new Silverado EV can’t do. Right out of the gate, the Silverado EV will offer up to 10,000 pounds of towing, and a future WT model will double that up to 20,000 pounds. You’ll also have options like a six-function Multi-Flex Tailgate, a Multi-Flex Midgate that allows you to fit items up to nearly 11 feet in length into the bed, 4-Wheel Steer and E-4WD, and an Ultium Home accessory charging unit that can power your home for up to 21 days.
And if you’re still not sold on an electric vehicle being a reliable choice, consider the fact that the all-new Silverado EV can go an estimated 400 miles on a full charge. That means you can make the six-hour-plus hoof up to Oklahoma City without having to stop once to top up. For those trips where you do need to make a stop, you can use a DC Public Charging station to add 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes.
When you boil it down like this and weigh the facts, the Chevrolet Silverado EV probably isn’t just the best electric truck on the market — it might just be the best Silverado that Chevy has ever made.
How to Live Electric
Whether you’re mulling over the badass Silverado EV or a stylish electric utility vehicle like the Bolt CUV or upcoming Equinox EV, there will be some adjustments between driving a vehicle with an engine and going electric. Chevrolet makes this simpler, too, giving you the confidence you need to live life electrifyingly.
Confidence starts with protection, and Chevrolet offers a worry-free eight-year/100,000-mile battery and electric component warranty for its EVs. Pair that with five years or 60,000 miles of roadside assistance and the fact that you’ll have fewer scheduled maintenance needs overall, and opting for an EV is a smart investment in your future.
Think about it this way: With a Chevrolet EV, you’ll never need another oil change again. That adds up to big savings in the long haul. If your current Chevy vehicle averages about 30 mpg and you drive 12,000 miles a year, you could save $762 on maintenance costs and up to $3,845 in fuel costs in the first five years. And that’s before you even consider potential tax incentives.
One of the bigger concerns you may have with an EV is reliability. When you drive a vehicle with an engine, you just find a convenient gas station and fill up when you need it. It’s not all that different with an EV, though you do have the added benefit to fuel up while your truck or SUV sits in the garage overnight.
Chevrolet gives you multiple options for at-home charging with your electric vehicle. You can simply plug your vehicle into any three-prong 120-volt outlet in your home and cover your daily commuting needs around Llano. Charging is even faster with an available Dual Level Charge Cord, which supports up to 240 volts and works with NEMA 14-50 outlets like what you’ll find at RV parks around Texas.
Or, if you want the fastest home charging possible, you can have a PowerUP Wall Charger installed at your home. This option can fully recharge a Bolt EV or Bolt EUV overnight and comes with an easy-to-use 25-foot charging cord. The Ultium PowerUP Wall Charger can put out up to 48 amps with the 11.5kW unit, and a future 19.2kW option will output up to 80 amps.
What about when you roam far from home? With more than 110,000 charging points in the United States and Texas, you’ll never be far from a spot to stop off and recharge your batteries on a long road trip. And with plenty of Level 2 and DC Fast Charging options everywhere from Texas to Tera Haute, you won’t be sitting by for long waiting to get back on the road.
And to make sure that you’re keeping a good pace, you can use the myChevrolet Mobile App with Energy Assist to plan your trip smarter. Energy Assist takes into account your EV’s max range and other real-time data to give you an accurate idea of how long your journey will take with stops to charge included.
