Current Chevrolet Camaro Will Remain Until EV Replacement, Report

Some GM cars and crossovers could get old before they go EV

  • Camaro won’t get normal refreshes or replacement before EV takeover

  • Same will apply to other GM models including Malibu


A new report sheds some light on the next generation of the Chevrolet Camaro. It looks like there will be an electric model coming, but that means the current car could live on for a very long time before that EV arrives.

The report from Automotive News talks about the wave of promised electrics coming from GM. It mentions that electric versions of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are expected to launch in 2023, but that the gas-powered models will live alongside them. At least until demand switches fully to electric.

It’s the Camaro, though, that has our attention. The report says that some existing models, like the Camaro as well as the Chevrolet Malibu, will no longer stick with the usual five or six years between all-new models with a refresh somewhere in the middle.

Instead, the two cars, and other existing vehicles like them, will remain in their current generations until a replacement EV arrives. For Malibu, that could mean remaining on sale through 2025. That would make the last mainstream GM sedan 10 years old and without a refresh since 2018. For Camaro, the current car also debuted in 2015, and while it saw a facelift in 2018 along with some slight bumper changes in 2020, this is an increasingly old model.

What will replace the Camaro in 2024? The report says it will be a performance electric, but it will be a sedan and not a coupe. This may come as a disappointment to Camaro die-hards, but seems like a surprisingly reasonable decision in a market where the only cars continuing to sell are a few subcompacts and luxury and near-luxury four-door coupes.
