New Electric eCOPO Chevrolet Camaro Runs A 9 Second Quarter Mile

Chevrolet's electric Camaro race car packs an 800-volt battery

The eCOPO's pair of BorgWarner motor assemblies and 800-volt battery system replace the Camaro's traditional gasoline engine, generating a combined 600 pound-feet of torque and 700 horsepower.

"The eCOPO Concept is all about where we go in the future with electrification in the high-performance space", explains Russ O'Blenes, GM director of performance variants, parts and motorsports.

Chevrolet has presented another idea auto intended for racing, and it is anything but a completely new model: it's a charged rendition of the COPO Camaro.

Chevy is leveraging its conceptual COPO auto as a means of advancing the conversation around electrification in drag racing.

Chevrolet can't let Teslas win all the electric drag races. This battery allows more efficient power transfer to the motor and faster recharging (especially important in the short down time between races). At the SEMA automotive parts and aftermarket mods show now underway in Las Vegas, the company revealed a battery-powered version of the iconic muscle vehicle so closely associated with American muscle, V8 engines, booming exhausts, and-above all-tradition. One being near the rear seats, the other near the spare tire well and the other over the rear axle. All that torque is sent through a traditional "Turbo 400" automatic transmission to a solid rear axle, and it's enough to shove this concept down a quarter-mile drag strip somewhere in the 9-second range. For safety, the rear compartment batteries have been sealed off from the rest of the cabin, and there's a new driveshaft tunnel. Chevrolet officials state a 56-percent rear weight bias is possible, which helps launch the vehicle more efficiently. Roll cage rearwards has been extended to protect the batteries from crash or accidents. The bellhousing design is exactly the same as a regular LS motor platform: this could mean the start of a much larger electric modification scene.

"The possibilities are intriguing and suggest a whole new world for racers", said O'Blenes.

Monday night at the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers' Association gathering in Las Vegas, Chevrolet revealed an electric concept version of its drag-race focused COPO Camaro. "We're not there yet, but it's something we're exploring".
