1972 El Camino with an eCrate Electric Motor

1972 El Camino built by Lingenfelter with an eCrate electric motor

Lingenfelter debuted their “eL Camino” project at PRI Trade Show 2021. Lingenfelter with technical assistance from Chevrolet Performance installed an Electric Connect & Cruise eCrate system into a 1972 El Camino. In the engine bay sits a 200-hp electric motor connected to a 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission. The rest of the drivetrain is left untouched. In the car’s bed sits the 66-kWh battery pack. Lingenfelter will be the first qualified Electric Specialty Vehicle Modifiers (ESVM) when the program launches next year.

    1. Well it really depends on the motor used, some electric motors have a rpm range of a few thousend RPM, so it is superly for performance reasons i guess. For efficientie it does not really matter as long as the gearbox does not have a big loss.
