Newly Converted Chevy K5 Blazer-E  
 

It has taken years of research and development, but Chevrolet finally announces that their crate electric batteries and motors will soon be available in the form of an EV Retrofit Kit by the end of 2021. This comes as great news for so many people who want to go all-electric but can't quite yet afford the sometimes hefty price tags that come with full-fledged electric vehicle prices.

What Is an EV Retrofit Kit?

Suppose you have a Chevrolet vehicle needing a gasoline-to-electric power conversion. In that case, these kits are going to work hand-in-hand with your existing powertrain to net you an all-electric vehicle. Chevy chose the 1977 K5 Blazer as its experimental model, and they were able to use their eCrate kits to fire up that old Blazer with a new EV kit. The results were commended as a great accomplishment in the automotive world, and the news continues to circulate.

Your old Chevy may or may not be a K5 Blazer, but you can use these kits to combine them with your automotive knowledge and net yourself the electric setup you want. While they're not recommended for novices to use in a DIY project, you can get certified technicians to install it for you.

The horsepower on the new electric motor kit is around 200 horsepower, so you're going to be able to ramp up your own Chevy and bring it into the new wave of life that has been sweeping through the country. Electric motors save money on gas and give you an excellent opportunity to reduce your emissions and help the environment. If you're not ready to buy a new electric car yet, we strongly urge you to consider one of these kits.
