Notably, the eCOPO concept is apparently built upon the frame of a conventional Chevy Camaro. Thus, the only difference between the electric Camaro and its gasoline brother is the engine.
For instance, the eCOPO’s engines will fit in the housing for the gasoline Camaro’s LS motors. Additionally, the eCOPO appears built for drag racing. Thus, GM is proving it can go head to head with Tesla Motors and win.
This is bad news for Tesla because GM could easily replicate any model it brings out. Therefore, the whole rationale behind Tesla, bringing out unique electric vehicles is called into question.
However, Elon Musk could view the eCOPO as vindication of his work at Tesla. To clarify, Musk’s major goal at Tesla is promoting electric vehicles not building a car company. Under those circumstances, the eCOPO vindicates all of Musk’s sacrifices at Tesla.
