Chevrolet is blessing the dragstrip with a new all-electric Camaro. Unveiled at SEMA, along with a few other treats, this 800-volt muscle car was the brainchild of Hancock and Lane Racing’s Patrick McCue and his Bothell High School automotive technology program.
Crowned with the name eCOPO (Central Office Production Order), this dragster generates 700 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque thanks to the juice from a pair of BorgWarner electric motors constructed into a single assembly. The powertrain is paired up with a Turbo 400 automatic transmission to help send the massive torque into the rear axle. The result is a blazing electric blue beast capable of a nine-second quarter mile, allowing it to keep up with gas-powered vehicles. The eCOPO is a one-off car, but we’re waiting eagerly to see if there will be any production plans announced.
