Lear to supply back seats for Chevrolet Silverado EV

Lear Corporation announced that it has been selected by General Motors to supply front and rear seats to the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV pickup.

The 40/60 split second-row seat – designed by Lear – offers four configurations, allowing users to haul gear or equipment while accommodating passengers in the second row, Lear says.

For the Silverado EV’s RST model, Lear engineered a tuck-and-tumble sequence for the second-row seat that provides best-in-class ergonomics and functionality. The fold-flat second-row seat combines with the innovative Multi-Flex Midgate, which collapses the bulkhead wall between the cabin and cargo space, to expand the storage capacity of the 5-ft.-11-in. bed to just over 9 ft.

Lear says it designed the foam, trim, structure, mechanism, plastics and seat harness for the seats, which will be produced at Lear’s new state-of-the-art facility in Detroit. The plant is scheduled to open in mid-2022 creating hundreds of new jobs for Detroit and southeastern Michigan residents, supplying seats on a just-in-time basis for the electric vehicles produced at GM’s Factory ZERO in Detroit-Hamtramck.
