We Render A Potential Electric Camaro Sedan87
A couple of years ago GM Authority took a stab at rendering a Chevy Camaro four-door sedan. We’re doing so again today, but this time around, like the automotive industry seems to be poised to do, we’ve gone electric.
If the thought of an electric Camaro makes you want to scroll down to the comments section and chime in on the thought of an electric Camaro sedan IN ALL CAPS, let us just say that WE HEAR YOU. But rumor has it that GM is planning on building that very vehicle. We’ll talk about that in just a few. For now, let’s check out the renderings.
Our rendering of an electric Camaro sedan is heavily based on the current, sixth-generation model but with several key changes. First, we added two more doors while shortening the length of the front ones, so as to accommodate the sedan layout. We then added an EV-friendly front fascia that keeps some of the styling from the sixth-gen Camaro, while borrowing some cues from the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV, such as the blocked-off grille/grille insert.
Eagle-eyed readers will notice that the SS-style heat extractor on the hood is present, even though it likely won’t be necessary or functional. Out back, we replaced the familiar dual exhaust in favor of a clean lower fascia. And we’re banking on the flexible packaging of GM’s Ultium battery pack and BEV3 platform to make the rear seat adult-friendly. The entire ensemble of this electric Camaro sedan rides on a set of multi-five-spoke 19-inch wheels optimized for the enhanced aerodynamic properties of an EV.
As GM Authority exclusively reported in June, the timeframe for discontinuation of the current, sixth-generation Chevy Camaro is rather fluid, with uncertainty as to when the current generation will be sunset. GM’s original plan involved discontinuing the current, internal combustion-engined muscle car in 2023, after the 2024 model year. However, GM Authority sources have also said that a plan is being considered that extends the sixth-gen Camaro program through the 2026 model year.
After that, the Camaro will likely evolve into an all-new, all-electric vehicle. How many doors that product will have is currently unclear, but given that Chevy will find itself without a single sedan in its lineup over the next few years, we would say that a Camaro sedan is exactly what the doctor ordered.
No matter the door count, it’s worth noting that a future Camaro EV will be supported by GM’s $35 billion investment to develop new electric and autonomous vehicles through 2025. The result of that plan will have the automaker plans to launch at least 20 new EV models in North America in the next five years before migrating its entire light-vehicle portfolio to EV by 2035.
It’s also worth noting that General Motors President, Mark Reuss, recently provided another hint at a future electric Chevy Camaro. During a presentation of GM’s electric vehicle plans in 2020, the automaker teased an image (above) that showed what appears to be a Camaro body atop of GM’s latest BEV3 platform.
Although Reuss declined to “put a year on that” in terms of a timeframe for the release of an all-electric GM sports car, the executive did indicate that such a vehicle was well within reach for the automaker in terms of technology and development. Reuss addressed the topic by discussing the Cadillac Celestiq, the luxury marque’s upcoming all-electric flagship sedan.
“What we’ve done with those [battery] modules and cells is we’re able to flip those on their sides to get the [hip] point down and to get the roofline down in the car,” Reuss said. “And so that car is a very low-roof car, and that sort of sets up that variant of the Ultium platform.”
“Lots of things being looked at, studied, designed, engineered,” Reuss added. “But I can tell you that the platform is absolutely capable of doing just about everything we want in our portfolio across every segment.”

I get so tired of these stupid renderings, a total waste of time. Can we please get rid of these articles and don’t tell me if you don’t like it, don’t read it, because either way it’s still a waste of space and time!
These must be out of work GM designers.
Any legacy vehicle manufacturer that claims they will be all-EV by 2025 or 2030 is simply green-washing you. Total BS. The market demand will be no where near that high for EVs in a decade. Reminds me of vaccination goals. Cant get there. Total leftist, climate change loving propaganda. There’s no lithium and the grid couldn’t provide enough juice if there was. You think GM is going to walk away from pickups and pickup framed SUVs? No chance.
I agree with you but Afghanistan is loaded with Lithium, I read 80% of the worlds supply. China already moved in with the Taliban so they can start Mining it. Strange how people think battery power is the way to go but where are they getting the electricity to charge these vehicles? Fossil Fuels! Just sayin………
I really don’t thing I can come up with word that could be used… What a JOKE…
The front end design is 🤢🤮, I’m glad this is a rendering because it’s worse than the BMW grill.
Hydrogen is the way to go.
Electric has too much infrastructure and is dependent on actual generation of electricity. All this talk of electric cars but we are already on the verge of blackouts when it gets hot or cold. No plans on how to generate all this newfound electricity. Hydrogen versus electric is like cellular versus landline. Convenience and independence will eventually make the case for this greener technology. Bring on the 500 hp hydrogen powered Camaro sedan. That would be a fun road trip!
Yiiiiikes can keep that.
Same butchery they pulled on the Chevelle. Let the name fail in peace. Call it the Biden.
Plz let’s go back to a real looking Camaro you’re over thinking this put the irocs back on the camaro and get back to a 2 door of course not everyone will like it that’s life but definitely going in wrong direction looks like a impala ss
No, looks terrible. Better idea would be 3rd gen inspired style. I almost see a rear hatch in the one picture.
Front end is 🤢🤮, I’m glad this is just a rendering 😌😭
You already said that……..
Oh i guess i messed up
Please 🙏 I hope GM makes an electric chevy camaro because if we all have to go electric ⚡ please I want to drive me a Camaro in 2030
I’ve had 3 Camaros in my life, including my current 2010 SS. YOU COULDN’T PAY ME TO OWN ONE OF THESE!!!! Leave the name of Camaro alone. I want to remember it for what it was. I don’t particularly care what you call this car. Will any car company be brave enough not to jump on the politically correct ba wagon. Sure building electric cars are fine…but before you get excited about electric powered cars, look onto how and where it comes from!
Couldn’t pay me to drive one! Call it something else!
How about Chevy Charger! Be brave GM and don’t sell out to political pressure
Too late, that happened when the Chicom loving women took over.
Know what I can’t wait for…a NASCAR Race that takes 2 days because we have to come back after the cars recharge!!!
looks good just don’t call it a Camaro its a four door Camaro’s are two doors coupes just give it another name
GM did the same in Australia with our Monaro by Holden calling our four door Kingswood a Monaro its like the thing ford is calling there EV a Mustang
Since 1967, Camaros have been 2 doors. Don’t effit up by calling a 4 door vehicle a Camaro. Call it a heritage name that was once available as a four door, but not a Camaro
Who in God’s name rendered this? “Let’s put a door handle on the rear quarter, yeah that’ll do.” Don’t quit your day job.
You must not be that bright. The door handle is on the rear door. Open your eyes and shut your mouth big guy.
Props to these guys for taking a chance with new ideas!
