Did Chevrolet Tease An All-Electric Performance Crossover To Dealers?

Electric Car / 1 Comment

The new model could take on the Tesla Model X and Ford Mach 1 teased in Detroit.

At a dealer meeting held in Las Vegas earlier this week, Chevrolet teased a slew of future product, including an all-electric performance vehicle that looked like a crossover, posted one attendee on CorvetteForum.com (via GM Authority). General Motors is at the beginning of a major product push that will see it roll out "at least 20 new all-electric vehicles [...] by 2023," the company stated in a release last year. A high-performance electric crossover to take on the Tesla Model X could be one of them.

Forum poster Nate Chandler of Van Bortel Chevrolet in New York stated, "Another interesting announcement: there is a performance electric car coming out, looked like a crossover. Alan Batey was very clear in saying it is a performance model. If it is a crossover, this will be interesting." The new, yet-unknown model sounds an awful lot like a possible all-electric crossover from Ford, which the Blue Oval's Jim Farley called, "a 4-door utility with the rebel soul of a Mustang," during its Ford Uncovered event in Detroit. Earlier, at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, Ford teased a vehicle in a video that fused the Explorer with a Mustang.

At the tail end of that video, a Mach 1 logo was displayed, hinting the automaker could revive the nameplate for non-Mustang duty. When Farley spoke of the model at Ford Uncovered, he made no mention of the Mach 1 moniker. A high-performance electric crossover might make sense for both Ford and General Motors. Tesla has taken the performance crown with its Model X P100D, which offers blistering acceleration in Ludicrous Mode.
