The 800-volt pack will allow significantly faster charging times, which is a key feature for the model, as the time between rounds is limited in drag racing. To achieve optimum weight distribution, the automaker designed its 800-volt battery with four 200-volt modules. Two of them are placed in the rear seating area, while the other two are in the trunk. Chevy placed another in the spare tire, while the last was in the area above the rear axle.
Chevrolet teamed with Hancock and Lane Racing to design the vehicle, but they still have a way to go. They are already testing the current version of the vehicle, but they will continue to work on it and test it on the drag strip to achieve faster and faster elapsed times.
Russ O & # 39; Blenes, GMs Director or Performance Variants, Parts and Motorsports, said:
"The possibilities are intriguing and propose a whole new world for racers."

" Drag Racing Panel National Hot Rod Association has also praised Chevrolet's efforts:
"Chevrolet's commitment to innovation and performance is reflected in this new concept vehicle." NHRA has debated and explored how electric cars are evolving to determine how they behave shaping the future of drag racing The new COPO Camaro is an exciting development in this process. "
