    Press Release: Chevroletís E-10 Concept Electrifies Hot Rodding World

    Chevrolet’s E-10 Concept Electrifies Hot Rodding World
    Vintage truck’s concept electric Connect & Cruise system offers estimated 450 hp
    General Motors
    2019-11-04



    Las Vegas - Chevrolet’s E-10 Concept imagines the future of hot rodding at the SEMA Show, with a 1962 C-10 pickup truck powered by an electric Connect & Cruise concept crate propulsion package offering approximately 450 horsepower, using proven components from the Chevrolet Bolt EV.

    Highlighting the company’s electric capabilities, using production-based components, the E-10 demonstrates electric conversion possibilities for classic vehicles, blending vintage styling and high performance with zero-emissions driving.

    “The Chevrolet E-10 electrified Connect & Cruise concept system reimagines the performance crate engine for hot rodders,” said Jim Campbell, vice president of Performance and Motorsports. “As General Motors continues to work toward our vision of a zero-emissions world, concepts such as this help us get there, while still supporting the enthusiasts who love to drive vintage vehicles.”

    The E-10’s Connect & Cruise concept propulsion system is composed of a double stack of Chevrolet Performance concept electric crate motors (eCrate), two 400-volt batteries and a conventional SuperMatic™ 4L75-E automatic transmission. The double stack eCrate motor replaces the truck’s original gas engine under the hood and is connected to the automatic transmission, which transfers torque to the rear axle. Power to the drive stack comes from the pair of independent Chevrolet Bolt EV power electronics and two production Bolt EV battery packs. Mounted in the truck’s bed, each offers 60 kWh of usable energy under a hard tonneau cover.

    “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.”

    With an estimated 450 horsepower to the rear wheels, the concept electric propulsion system helps the E-10 deliver 0-60 mph times of around 5 seconds; and quarter mile times in the high 13 second range.

    To fit in with other hot rods on the road, the E-10 has a sound emulator complete with three speakers to simulate an induction sound in the front and two banks of a V8 engine in the back of the vehicle. The driver can select one of five modes on the emulator, including: LS7 Z28 track tuning, LS7 Z28 touring turning, a V8 engine, a futuristic sound or silent – and the sounds will automatically adjust to the changing of the gears, truly mimicking an internal combustion engine.

    This would be a cool direction for electrification - applying it to beloved older models. I think an electric 1960's era Suburban would be very cool to see. Not sure I care much about the piped-in audio (LS7 though - they picked a good motor to simulate!).

    Not sure how those older designs can house modern safety equipment or pass modern crash tests though...

    Pickups used to be more compact and better looking. What's up with the tall fascias nowadays?

    a conventional SuperMatic™ 4L75-E automatic transmission
    How and why? I was under the impression that EVs were typically 1-speed since they don't require a transmission.

    I read a few years back that the customers now want a "Big-Rig" look to the trucks.

    Could be to reduce the performance of the EV motor.

    Might as well. I'm just so eagerly awaiting the instant transition that I'm afraid to blink and miss it. Total ICE blink Total BEV.
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    Ford unveils electric Mustang, GM unveils this thing.
    Drives a 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe and a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.

    In the past, I've had a 5th gen Camaro, a CTS sedan and coupe, two 3rd gen Firebird Formulas, a convertible 4th gen Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, a Saturn SC1, and a Cherokee.
