  • E-ray confirmed???

    So at the 2018 SEMA show not a 3rd party company or some shop somewhere, but CHEVROLET themselves brought a 800 Volt ECOPO Camaro and it is packing some serious power using all electric motors. So with GM doing this and showing the world what they are capable of, I think they are teasing what the C8 ME could have eventually in their "top level" car, using the DOHC twin turbo V8 and electric motors up front making a combined 1,000 hp. I guess we will have to wait and see!

    Interesting. Everyone has pretty much assumed the "e-ray" would be a hybrid, but could it be all electric? I wonder what the range on the electric Camaro drag car is?

      Thank you xXColorShiftXx for finding and posting that information.

      Re meyerweb’s comment, maybe we will have both versions? An all-electric e-RAY and a separate 5.5 L, 32 V, DOHC, TT, 800 HP plus electric motors inside the front wheels, e.g., the latter being the 1,000 HP Zora version.

        I hope GM has learned their lesson with the ELR That was a Huge Mistake. They have their econo cars like the Volt which has done well. I think they will be slashing their throat producing sport cars that are all electric. Especially at the price the ELR was 80K and had a Volt drivetrain in it. Most sport cars are taken on long trips occasionally and I feel they don't want to search for a charging station and then have to wait before continuing their journey. Possibly a great engine with electric would do well. Besides, living in Florida with all the storms, I would NEVER purchase an all electric car because I want to be able to drive it out of here if I wish. With the grid constantly being bombarded it's a serious problem I feel the car companies aren't realizing.

          You can bet that, based on historical precedent, the E-Ray battery will be 805 Volt.

          Now, if they can pack that 700HP/600TQ electric motor along with a 100 kWh battery (805V, of course), that would be a winning combination. For comparison, the Tesla Model S P100D has 762 HP and a 0-60 time of 2.6 seconds.

            Tesla seems to have little problem selling $80K electric cars, and they have an all electric sports car in the works. So who knows...

            I agree that if GM does sell an all electric e-ray it has to offer a lot more than the Volt / Bolt performance levels.

              Tesla P100d is really fast, because as we mid engine lovers know, it also has AWD, and short of AWD, how about if the motor were moved to right before the rear wheels for better traction? Let’s also conceptualize the transmission’s and the differential’s lump of metal both also around the CG for these three heavy objects just about directly above the rear wheels?

              Oh yes, GM is going to do exactly that. Will the 2020 ME get even in the ballpark of 2.6 seconds? Well, as we all know, not even close to that. But will the 2020 ME, with its roughly 500 HP and its DCT get around 0-to-60 in about 3.35 seconds? Yes!

              What about the 2021 Z06 or then the 2022 ZR1 Zora? Both will be in the two second range.

                It's important to remember when making comparisons to sales of other performance cars is that the 2-seater market is extremely limited. I have friends who convinced their spouses to go along w/ a 911 purchase because there are pseudo-seats in the back for 2 kids. A lot of folks with the means to purchase an expensive car will not consider a 2-seater.
