Newly Converted Chevy K5 Blazer-E  

It's an exciting time in the world of automotive technology. Chevrolet recently announced that they were able to convert the configuration of a 1977 K5 Blazer and turn it into a full-fledged electric machine. Chevrolet has been tinkering with this concept for a while now, but they were never able to get production off the ground until this year. By converting a gas-powered 1977 K5 Blazer into a fully functioning electric vehicle, they laid the blueprint for new EV retrofit conversion kits.

What Kind of Person Will Love the Retrofit Kits?

If you are the type of person who loves to work on cars, these kits are a dream come true. The Electric Connect and Cruise package will offer "crate electric motors and batteries" to get started. The installation process gears towards auto enthusiasts with high technical knowledge of cars or eCrate certified specialists. Our dealership has a dedicated auto service team that will be more than happy to get your old Chevy up and running with an EV retrofit kit.

By replacing old components with these electric powertrain components, you'll be able to get an electric car without having to pay massive amounts of money to go all green in an all new vehicle. Part of the pressing issue for some people is that they don't have the money to drop $50,000 on an all-electric vehicle. With these reasonably priced kits and some know-how, you can give yourself an electric vehicle with very little time or money invested.

Chevy showed how the process was done earlier this year and shared it with their customers. When converting the 1977 K5 Blazer, Chevy retained as much of the Blazer as possible, with roughly 90 percent of the new components installed for the eCrate package being factory parts from the Chevy Bolt EV.
