At the 2019 SEMA show, Chevrolet dropped an impressive lineup of cars, from the one-off COPO Camaro John Force Edition to the Silverado HD Carhartt. However, it was the new E-10 truck model that garnished the most attention.

Diving back into their archive for a reimagined look at the 1962 C-10 pickup truck, Chevrolet blends vintage style and modern technology in the E-10 concept. Visually, the truck retains its overall shape and build, but under the hood, Chevy adds its electric Connect & Cruise concept crate propulsion package offering “approximately 450 horsepower.”

Using “proven components from the Chevrolet Bolt EV,” the system features a double-stack electric crate motors, two Bolt-sourced 400-volt batteries, and a conventional automatic transmission. The power from the electric propulsion system is channeled exclusively to the rear wheels and provides 0 to 60 miles per hour (0 to 96 kilometers per hour) sprint in around five seconds. The estimated quarter-mile time is in the high 13-second range.

“General Motors has the in-house talent required to create a concept like the E-10,” Jim Campbell, vice president of Performance and Motorsports at Chevy, commented. “With the innovative thinking and expertise our performance team, electrification team and many others at GM bring, this project went from concept to a running vehicle in 18 weeks to demonstrate what the future of an eCrate propulsion system and hot rodding could look like.”

The E-10 also adds two LED lights to the front and back, and lowered the trucks suspension. Let us know what you think of Chevy's latest concept car.
