Following a deluge of news and info dropped at the recent GM EV Day event, General Motors is proudly declaring that “Our electric future is now.” The automaker plans on introducing 20 new all-electric models by 2023, and judging by a recent teaser video, it looks like one of those forthcoming EVs could be a new all-electric Chevrolet Camaro.
The video teaser in question is just 13 seconds long, but provides a number of exciting leads with regard to GM’s EV plans. The video shows the automaker’s next-gen BEV3 EV platform, which made its big debut at the recent GM EV Day event. On top of the platform, we see a number of vehicle silhouettes drawn, including crossovers, hatchbacks, a pickup truck, and the Cruise Origin fully autonomous taxi.
Critically, we also see what appears to be a sports car around the four-second mark which looks very much like a Chevrolet Camaro.
All told, it wouldn’t be terribly surprising if General Motors decided to develop a new Chevrolet Camaro EV. We’ve already seen what electric performance can do with the race-spec eCOPO Camaro dragster, while the Chevrolet E-10 EV concept that debuted at SEMA last year take the idea of all-electric performance a step further with an EV crate motor.
Moving forward, an all-electric Chevrolet Camaro could potentially offer some seriously high-powered performance. The claims made by the upcoming GMC Hummer EV pickup should be evidence enough of that. With 1,000 horsepower and a 0-to-60 mph sprint set at three seconds for the truck, one can only imagine what the same technology might look like in a true sports car.
