2019 Chevy Bolt EV Reimagined As Race Support Concept Vehicle
Aaron Brzozowski

Chevrolet Bolt EV Panel Race Support Concept - SEMA 2018




The 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV has been reimagined by Chevy as a race support
vehicle to serve “racing enthusiasts of the future,” as GM’s bowtie brand
today unveiled the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV Panel Race Support concept at the
2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Based on a production pure-electric Chevy Bolt
EV in Kinetic Blue Metallic, the Panel Race Support concept boasts a small
range of official Chevrolet accessories and custom modifications handpicked
for the car’s newfound duties as a racing support car.

From the Chevrolet accessories catalog, there’s an illuminated charge port
by AeroVironment ($325), black front and rear Chevy bowtie emblems ($115), a
wall-mounted 240V/32A EV charging unit ($499), a pair of door sill plates
($75), and on the drivers side, a black all-weather floor mat with Bolt EV
script ($140 each). All that adds up to a little more than a grand in
accessories, although those add-ons really only tell part of the story.

The real meat of the story is told by a range of unpriced modifications that
aren’t in the Chevrolet catalog, like the side panels that block out the
rear side windows on the Chevy Bolt EV Panel Race Support concept,
effectively transforming it into a panel van. Those panels wear unique Chevy
Bolt EV and Chevrolet Performance vinyl graphics, while the battery-electric
hatchback rolls on special 19-inch alloy wheels and features a smattering of
blue interior accents.

And then, there’s the very thing that makes this Panel Support concept a
racing support vehicle; it’s carrying a spare electric motor for the eCOPO
Camaro – a 750-horsepower battery-electric drag racing Camaro concept also
unveiled at the 2018 SEMA Show.

The 2019 Chevy Bolt EV Panel Race Support concept demonstrates what’s
possible with a hobby, a bit of imagination, and some money for
modifications. It’s the perfect companion to the eCOPO Camaro electric drag
racing machine, and together, the two cars might just give us an idea of
what to expect from automobile racing in the not-too-distant future as we
attempt to curb consumer greenhouse gas emissions.
