Newly Converted Chevy K5 Blazer-E  
 

In the second half of 2021, Chevrolet will release their EV Retrofit Kits to all interested parties. Perhaps you're a business that wants to offer your auto buyers a little something extra to consider. Maybe you're someone who owned a very reliable used car and wants to turn it into something a little more modern. No matter what kind of buyer you are, the Retrofit kits are an exciting development in automobiles.

What Are EV Retrofit Kits?

Chevrolet wanted to give their customers an easy way to turn a gas-powered automobile into a fully functioning electric car, truck, or SUV. They've sold crates for years that let you transform your existing powertrain into another powertrain, but this is the first time the brand attempted to turn a gas powertrain into an all-electric one. The results were beautiful. The 1977 K5 Blazer that Chevy worked on eventually became a 200-horsepower electric SUV that can run on its own motor and battery. That means no gas required!

When you consider how innovative even hybrid powertrains are, it's a miracle that Chevy was able to modify a V8 powertrain and turn it into an electric-powered vehicle. That 1977 K5 Blazer will likely be the most interesting Chevy Blazer in history, and they've already demonstrated its performance for everyone that's already curious about this new revolution. What's it mean for you? It means that if you have an older model Chevy, at the end of 2021, you'll be able to buy one of the EV retrofit kits and turn your own used Chevy into an all-electric, eco-friendly model. It'll be at least 200 horsepower, and Chevy may even come out with strong EV powertrains in future kits.
