(CNN)General Motors announced Tuesday that it will produce an all-electric Chevrolet Silverado truck, with an estimated driving range of more than 400 miles on a single charge.

Instead, it will be engineered from the beginning as an electric-only truck, GM said, using the same Ultium electric vehicle engineering that will underlie many of the automaker's future electric vehicles, including the GMC Hummer EV models and the Cadllac Lyriq SUV.

Business and fleet buyers will be a particular market focus for this new electric truck, GM President Mark Reuss said in a presentation.

GM also recently announced it will make an electric delivery van for business customers as well.

GM executives have also spoken in the past about making a mass-market electric pickup truck.

The company recently announced plans to sell only emission-free vehicles by 2035, though it has not yet released any details on when the electric Silverado will hit showrooms.

That factory has been remodeled to focus entirely on making electric vehicles.

That factory will also build the Cruise Origin self-driving electric vehicle as the GMC Hummer EV pickup and the recently unveiled GMC Hummer EV SUV.

GM has said it plans to offer as many as 30 electric vehicles by the end of 2025.
