The era of the Chevrolet Camaro, a gasoline-powered icon since 1967, has come to an end. Production ceased in December 2023, leaving the future of this legendary nameplate shrouded in uncertainty.

Unlike Ford's Mustang Mach-E, Reuss envisions a return of the Camaro nameplate that stays true to its pony car roots. He emphasized that the next Camaro should not be an electric crossover or SUV but a genuine, affordable, and engaging pony car. The goal is to create a vehicle that appeals beyond the enthusiast community while maintaining a coupe-like appearance. Whether Chevrolet will adopt a "four-door coupe" layout similar to Dodge's upcoming electric Charger remains to be seen.

Reuss mentioned that a future Camaro EV might be priced similarly to the current Equinox EV, which starts at £27,500 for the 1LT model. This pricing would make the new electric Camaro about £3,950 cheaper than the last gas-powered version, especially after considering the £5,900 federal EV tax credit. However, these plans are still in the early stages. Reuss noted that an electric Camaro is still some time away, as GM needs to ramp up its Ultium powertrain production. This powertrain is already used in models like the Equinox EV and GMC Hummer EV.

Many enthusiasts are eager for the Camaro's return, and Reuss's vision aligns well with their hopes. Still, it will be some time before we see GM's plans come to fruition. It appears that Ford's strategy with the Mustang Mach-E might be more unique than previously thought.
