Next-Gen Chevrolet Camaro Rumoured To Be An EV Sedan

The Camaro name may soon feature on something other than a coupe. 

Much like what Ford did with the Mustang Mach-E, it appears that the Camaro nameplate wouldn’t be exclusive to featuring on a coupe anymore. That is because if the rumours are to be believed, the next iteration of this iconic Chevrolet nameplate would soon be finding itself on an all-electric sedan instead. 

Now as with all rumours, details in regards to this particular subject has been skint and murky thus far. It is however alleged that this all-electric sedan will be of the performance variety, befitting the Camaro name. It is also slated to arrive sometime in 2024, when the current sixth-generation is set to be phased out. 

Continuing onto other happenings in the wider General Motors umbrella meanwhile, it is also reported that the Buick Encore and Chevrolet Trax compact crossover, as well as the Spark compact car and Malibu sedan are all set to kick the can after their most-current iteration. All of which have no immediate successor currently planned by the American auto giant. 

It has also been rumoured that the Chevrolet Bolt and Bolt EUV launched last year will be facing a premature death in the next two to three years, with their replacements to be a new crossover based upon GM’s all-electric Ultium platform. Other product launches that are in the pipeline on the other hand includes the new Cadillac Lyriq and GMC Hummer, which will spearhead the auto conglomerate’s endeavours to become an EV-exclusive automaker come 2035. 

So with that in mind therefore, it really doesn’t come as a surprise anymore that the Camaro would soon have to ditch its V8 motor for something more electrified. What is perhaps the more interesting decision here by GM though is to slap the Camaro name on a four-door sedan. 

On the topic of the Camaro diversifying into becoming a sedan however, this will not actually be the first iconic American muscle car moniker to grow an extra pair of doors behind. The current Dodge Charger has been a full-sized sedan for well over a decade after all. 

That said though, Chevrolet does have a couple of good sedan names from its past already, like Chevelle and Impala for instance. So why isn’t the bow-tie marque choosing not to use those similarly recognisable monikers then, instead of just turning the Camaro into a sedan?
