Chevrolet took the wraps off a concept pickup truck powered by electricity and styled to look like a 1962 Chevy C-10.

According to published reports, the truck uses the company's two 400-volt Bolt EV batteries and produces 450 horsepower. The batteries rest in the truck bed, and produce 60 kWh each. Reports cite Chevy officials saying the truck will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph  in 5 seconds.

According to a post on gmauthority.com citing Russ O'Blenes, director of performance variants, parts and motorsports:

“The E-10 Concept builds on the experience and momentum generated by last year’s eCOPO Concept, taking the idea of a ‘crate’ electric propulsion system further by leveraging actual production components. It’s all still in the testing stage, but this concept brings the electric option for hot rodders much closer to reality.”
