Chevrolet’s E-10 Concept Unveiled At SEMA
With every SEMA Show, dozens and dozens of concepts are unveiled that stun the automotive world. This time, it’s Chevrolet’s E-10 concept that electrifies the hot rodding world. The Chevrolet E-10 concept started as a 1962 C-10 pickup truck that ended up powered by an electric Connect & Cruise concept crate propulsion package offering approximately 450 horsepower, using proven components from the Chevrolet Bolt EV.
The E-10’s Connect & Cruise concept features a double stack of Chevrolet Performance concept electric crate motors (eCrate), two 400-volt batteries and a conventional SuperMatic™ 4L75-E automatic transmission.
“General Motors has the in-house talent required to create a concept like the E-10,” said Campbell. “With the innovative thinking and expertise our performance team, electrification team and many others at GM bring, this project went from concept to running vehicle in 18 weeks to demonstrate what the future of an eCrate propulsion system and hot rodding could look like.”
Chevrolet estimates the E-10 concept delivers about 450 horsepower and goes 0-60 in 5 seconds. If you happen to get out to SEMA, check out this concept truck. It proves that hot rodding will still be around as long as ever.
