It’s the 6th of November and in Las Vegas, the Nevada SEMA show is going on with all the leading car manufacturers around the world. Among them, Chevy has presented an impressive lineup of their vehicles including the 2021 Chevy Silverado HD Carhartt and a blast from the past Chevy E-10 which we will cover in this article.
The new Chevy E-10 concept is based on the C-10 pickup which was produced in 1962 with a 4.5L V8 engine. Although the E-10 concept may look like a gas-guzzling machine, well it’s not. This pickup is a combination of retro styling and modern technology with a Connect & Cruise electric engine.
Chevy E-10 Specs
This Chevy Pickup comes with two 400V batteries sourced from Chevy Bolt EV and automatic transmission for an effortless experience. E-10 is powered by two batteries with a combined power of 120 kWh and the batteries are placed under the tonneau cover of the pickup truck.
According to Chevy, this pickup produces a whopping 450 HP powering the rear wheels and helping the truck go from 0 to 60 MPH (0-96 KMPH) in less than 5 seconds and a quarter-mile in less than 13 seconds. These numbers should surprise you as if it would’ve been a gas engine, the numbers would be laughable but for a new generation of Electric Pickup Truck, the figures are just great.
With this pickup, Chevy has shown that even Electric Cars can be fun too. No one would have thought of an electric pickup truck with so much power, but Chevy has done something that will either attract people more or make the old hot rodders feel uneasy. All in all this pickup is a new initiative in this world full of gas-guzzling pickup trucks.
The best feature according to us would be the built-in sound emulator system equipped to mimic the sound of a typical gas engine. Isn’t that cool? There are 3 speakers installed inside this truck to make that sweet sound of a 7.0-liter V8 while cruising around in this low pickup truck, There are 5 different drive modes available in E-10 for the driver to choose from. It’s up to you, whether you want to let everyone know what you are driving or you want to drive in utmost silence.
