As a Tesla shareholder and CT enjoyer I am disappointed that CHEVY of all companies appears to have made a more capable vehicle by range of metrics, usability, and versatility.
No steer by wire and the Silverado looks like a regular ugly truck, but the stat sheet is better than the CT and that is disapointing.
I put in a reservation for an RST as a backup plan in case the CT didn’t happen, but the fact remains that GM/Chevy has demonstrated no clue about designing or building EVs so the RST will be a brute force BEV implantation. If you look at the features alone it is impressive but it won’t be a Tesla. Since I was able to create an order last week I canceled my RST reservation today.

I read the battery takes something like $100+ dollars to fill at EA chargers. Not much savings and I’m guessing reliability will not be as good as Tesla.

I do love the bed extension and windows attributes. But no where near as cool as the CT.

How many people buying a $100k vehicle are getting worked up over an extra $100 a month in energy costs? When I drove any vehicle that required 93 octane fuel BITD, it was just part of the luxury experience.

As well people would typically charge at home and those EA or NACS Superchargers would typically be road tripping budget travel cost. It is all relative anyway and you'd have to compare the cost of filling up gas/diesel for the same number of miles (if that was the singular criteria in this example).

It costs more to drive a cybertruck cross country than a gas F150 so people should not be suprised that any full size EV is not going to be price efficient when traveling long distances and using public charging options which cost more than home utility rates.

You only charge your car once a month? 🤔
The only time you'll be spending considerably more charging a Silverado EV is if you're using public charging to fill your battery. If you're using home charging, the extra cost won't add up nearly as fast. Say you drive 50 miles a day and the CT gets 2.1 miles per kWh and the Silverado gets 1.8, the extra cost shouldn't be impactful for anyone that can afford a $100k vehicle.

If the argument is being environmentally friendly and the Silverado EV isn't as sustainable, then we should all be driving Model 3s unless we are towing or hauling something. If someone is using a CT as a daily driver and saying the Hummer EV or Silverado EV are bad for the environment, it's incredibly hypocritical, because the CT is worse for the environment than a smaller EV.

Where is the data supporting this claim? Do you have a link to share? I ask because even though SC charges have been going up so have gas per-gallon rates. It is pretty hard for me to believe that there is even parity on long-distance costs for charging over gas.

How can an EV cost more $$ per mile than a gas guzzler F150? Is this the heights of Trolling Cybertruck? I’m sure now someone will share some made up numbers and statistics to back up this claim. We might as well prove that earth is flat. :ROFLMAO:

$100 buys me 294 kWh which at Out of Spec gets you 735 miles which is under 10K miles a year but not unreasonable for a low-end use case.

Of course, that much energy will get my Zero almost three thousand miles, which is just under my annual use.

Tho I think they were referring to paying $100 for charging at a DC fast charging station, which you would only do on a road trip. Which, well, most people don't road trip every month.

Take a look at the cost of gas and mph an F150 gets on the highway
Do the same at cost of supercharing and what a CT gets

CT is a far superior vehicle but the efficiency at highway speeds is neither efficient or cheap.

Here is the answer if you don't want to, this guy did it for you.

Fuel/electricity is such a small portion of my income it does not move the needle for me in the slightest, for some it does. 20s search found the below that may provide some data.

Yeah right! Conveniently said $3 per gallon to do the math. Please visit CA sometime to understand the reality. Even with that number CT is $15 cheaper than F150, and don’t forget that you are having a luxury driving experience with sports car acceleration at that cost. I still can’t believe I’m defending an argument to claim EVs cost less $$ per mile than ICE vehicles!
