Swap an electric motor and batteries for that old ICE

If you haven’t already crushed your old Blazer, consider an electric motor conversion. This isn’t just pie in the sky, GM says this kit will be available soon.

“To convert the 1977 K5 Blazer, the team first removed from the Blazer the original 175-horsepower 400 cubic-inch V-8, three-speed automatic, fuel system and exhaust. Then, the team installed a Bolt EV electric motor, delivering 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, paired with a Chevrolet Performance electronically controlled four-speed automatic. The rest of the Blazer drivetrain remains untouched, including the transfer case, driveshaft and axles.”
