Chevrolet showed off part of its future portfolio of vehicles at its dealer meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, this week, and there could be a battery-electric performance vehicle in the pipeline.
According to Nate Chandler of Van Bortel Chevrolet in New York state, Chevrolet teased an all-electric performance vehicle at the meeting, and it may be a crossover. Chandler took to the Corvette Forum to describe what he saw and learned from the meeting. Audio and photos were not permitted.
Chandler specifically named Alan Batey, GM President of North America, as the source, and Batey reportedly made it crystal clear that the vehicle will be a performance model. He did not, however, confirm the body style. From Chandler’s perspective, the vehicle looked like a CUV.
Previously, a future electric-car flowchart showed part of GM’s plans for the 20 new electric cars coming by 2023. Within the plans, the chart described an “expressive” “low-roof” luxury car and an “efficient” “low-roof” car. None of the described models included performance-oriented adjectives.
