News Fancy A Chevrolet Camaro Hybrid?

Fancy A Chevrolet Camaro Hybrid?

Apparently, GM’s done some surveying the old-fashioned way. Sometime last summer, they posted on the Camaro6 forum asking actual Camaro owners how they feel about the idea of hybrid Camaro. More specifically, a hybrid turbocharged inline-4 engine and a hybrid V-8 engine powered Camaro.

On paper, the options are mostly interesting. Mostly because a hybrid muscle car seems wrong. And mostly because it’s an inevitable reality.

The two hybrid powertrains breakdown as follows:

The 4-cylinder option consists of a turbocharged 2.0-litre hybrid that would produce 365 horsepower, return 30 mpg combined, and cover the 0-60 mph sprint in 4.4 seconds.

The V8 option is more appealing. The hybrid 6.2-litre would be good for 545-horsepower, get 24 mpg combined, and hit 60 mph in 3.7 seconds.

It’s important to note here than OEMs routinely survey existing or potential customers so this is not such an usual situation. As such, this does not mean that a hybrid Camaro will ever exist.

And in case you were interested, the hybrid-4-cylinder would come with a possible $4,000 premium over the base car, or the equivalent required extra for the SS. The hybrid-8-cylinder option would add a further $4,000, for a total of $8,000.

Two things make this anecdote all the more “interesting”: There are rumours of a hybrid Corvette and Ford’s talked about a hybrid Mustang.
