General Motors Co. Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra showed off the company’s electric Chevrolet Silverado at the CES exhibition, announcing that the pickup will go on sale in the spring of 2023 to compete with battery-powered trucks from longstanding rival Ford Motor Co. and newcomer Rivian Automotive Inc.

The Silverado will trail Ford’s F-150 Lightning to market by a year, but GM says its pickup will have more range and greater towing power. The automaker will offer a commercial version of the truck and one for retail customers called the RST. Both will go 400 miles (640 kilometers) on a charge, easily beating the Ford and Rivian R1T trucks.
