Chevy's eCOPO Camaro Concept can run the quarter mile in the 9-second range; the auto was developed by GM and built in partnership with an electric drag racing team called Hancock and Lane Racing. Its 800-volt system will make for some fast charging, which is helpful at a drag strip, where the action never really slows down. In drag racing, this can be quite an advantage.

The eCOPO has an electric motor generating more than 700hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. It has the same bell house mounting pattern and crankshaft flange as the popular LS-family engines, allowing it to work with virtually any GM transmission. The pack includes four 200-volt modules, each of which weighs about 175 pounds. For racing, engineers have surrounded them with crash structures and roll cages and added a battery-management system to continually monitor their condition.
