1977 Chevrolet K5 Blazer-E SUV

Manufacturers have been offering crate motors for decades — pre-assembled engines ready to drop in the chassis of your choice. Chevrolet is changing the game with the eCrate, allowing buyers to drop in a Bolt EV drivetrain into anything with wheels. The eCrate concept first debuted on the eCOPO Camaro, and now Chevy is showing just how adaptable electric drivetrains are with this 1977 Blazer. The 400 cubic-inch V8 was removed along with the transmission, and a 400-volt battery pack with 200 horsepower electric motor was dropped in. Everything else, from the Dana axles to transfer case, is original. The eCrate package, conmplete with battery, motor, wiring harness, controllers, and cooling, will be available in the second half of 2021.
