Chevrolet eCOPO Camaro: stroomsprinter

Chevrolet has the digital cloth is removed from the eCOPO Camaro Concept. That is a Camaro that is best at home on the dragstrip, but - yes - fully electric.

You'll come to Chevrolet the name 'COPO', then you know that you are dealing with a for the dragstrip klaargestoomde version of the model. Specifically for the SEMA Show in Las Vegas has Chevy the eCOPO Camaro devised, a dragstrip-Camaro that is not even talking about a freak powerful V8.

The eCOPO (photo 1 t/m 3), the small 'e' in his name, is in fact completely electric! The Camaro has two electric motors, which together are good for a system power of 710 hp and 814 Nm of torque. The battery pack gets a place in the trunk of this showknaller. Chevrolet expects the car, which is equipped with a roll cage that also the battery pack protects, a 'quarter-mile sprint' (400 meters) in a nine-count guilty.

According to Chevrolet, it's not inconceivable that the electric motors, which is just on the place where before the combustion engine was, in the long term is going to offer as a 'crate engine'. Exciting!

The eCOPO Camaro is still a concept car, but that does not apply to the new "regular" COPO Camaro that Chevrolet brings to Las Vegas. This is also for the dragstrips prepared Camaro makes its debut as a 50th Anniversary Edition. The car has in the nose a 4,9-litre V8, where an imposing supercharger is screwed. There are only 69 copies available of this edition organized. That is a reference to the year 1969, in which the first generation Camaro is a COPO-edition was presented.
