What about an EV or Hybrid Camaro?

I don't know if this has been discussed int this forum, but thinking out of the box, if there can be a Tesla Roadster or Porsche EV why not EV Camaro? What are your thoughts on this?

Re: What about an EV or Hybrid Camaro?

EVs have a lot of catching up to do with gas cars in one important way: the ability to run flat out until the gas tank runs dry, fill the tank up again in a couple minutes, and do it again.

I like to take my fourth gen to HPDE events, where I take it out and drive as fast as I can around a racetrack for twenty minutes out of each hour.

There isnít a mass-market EV that can do this today. The Rimac Concept One did a great job at the Nurburgring, but that was seven minutes, and you canít just go buy one of those anyway. A Tesla Model S P100D canít even go three minutes at full steam before itís overheated.

When electric powertrain tech has caught up on that, Iíll be cool with an electric Camaro.

GM has said that the Camaro is not the platform for that type of technology.
