NHRA applauds new eCOPO concept

Chevrolet's electric Camaro race car packs an 800-volt battery

2019 Chevy COPO Camaro Gets Retro Look To Mark 50-Year Milestone

Testing is ongoing. "The eCOPO Concept is all about where we go in the future with electrification in the high-performance space", said Russ O'Blenes, director, Performance Variants, Parts and Motorsports at General Motors. "The original COPO Camaro program was all about pushing the envelope, and this concept is an exploration with the very same spirit".

Two years ago, Chevrolet used SEMA to reveal the latest COPO Camaro, a factory-built drag racer packing a supercharged LSX-based 350 engine good for 580 hp. Today, a new Chevrolet concept auto at the SEMA show lets the company break new trails into performance-model territory: the eCOPO Camaro Concept.

Klay Thompson Sets New NBA Record
The Australian finished with 21 points , 12 rebounds and nine assists as the 76ers improved their win-loss record to 4-3. Bulls: Former Bulls C Joakim Noah got a standing ovation when he was shown on the video board late in the first half .

Chevrolet has turned its flagship muscle vehicle into a drag racer but has left the V8 on the shelf in favour of an electric motor with an 800-volt battery. The pack includes four 200-volt modules, each of which weighs about 175 pounds. On the one hand, 800-volt battery technology is likely to be instrumental in production EVs in the years to come, as drivers expect more power and faster charging times. Two are where the rear seat would be, while the second pair sits in the trunk.

Featuring a special Anniversary Blue Metallic exterior color that pays homage to the original Laguna Blue offered in 1969, the SEMA show auto previews the special color and graphics of the COPO Camaro 50th Anniversary Special Edition package offered for 2019. The traction battery works under 800 volts!

IN children struck, killed by truck at bus stop
Three children who were from the same family died at the scene - twin six-year-old boys and their nine-year-old sister. Four children were in the process of crossing the road to board the bus when they were struck by a pickup truck.

The eCOPO Camaro is estimated to run a quarter mile in around nine seconds. For safety, the rear compartment batteries have been sealed off from the rest of the cabin, and there's a new driveshaft tunnel. The resulting 56-percent rear weight bias helps the vehicle launch more efficiently. Chevy engineers have gone so far as to extend the car's roll cage over the battery pack. That allows it to bolt up to just about any General Motors transmission. The unit bolts in place of the COPO's LS-based engine, sending power through the TH400 transmission and 9-inch rear axle. "We're not there yet, but it's something we're exploring", says O'Blenes.

Chevrolet generally uses the SEMA Show in Las Vegas to introduce the newest COPO Camaro drag auto and at the 2018 show, we get to meet the 2019 production version of the track-only machine.
