What is the performance of the Chevrolet Camaro eCOPO?

According to the company, the power of the electric motor is 700 CV and 814 Nm of maximum torque. This block is powered by an 800-volt battery, more than twice the size of the Volt and Bolt EV. To allow an optimal weight distribution, Chevrolet has confirmed that they have placed the battery under the floor of the vehicle. The chosen area has been the seats and the boot, in order to avoid traction losses in acceleration.

The maximum speed of the Camaro eCOPO has not been confirmed, but if how it accelerates. According to Chevrolet it will cover the quarter mile in 9 seconds, demonstrating what it is capable of. The rest of the eCOPO technical data has not been confirmed, such as your autonomy or loading time. However, Chevrolet has left open the door to its manufacture. The reason, that this electric motor can be coupled to the transmissions of the LS models.

To test the possibilities of the Camaro eCOPO Chevrolet has teamed up with Hancock and Lane Racing. Among them, they will continue to develop the eCOPO Camaro and test it in acceleration races. For now, this concept serves to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first COPO Camaro, although who knows, the same is the first of a new era. We will see what reception the public gives you and if those responsible for General Motors give the green light to the project.
