Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Chevy Builds an Electric C-10 and Ford Shows Off a Battery-Powered Mustang at SEMA

Posted November 20, 2019 9:00 AM by dstrohl

With instantaneous torque, fewer components, and compact motors, are electric conversions the future of hot rodding? No, they’re not. But chances are they’ll be a piece of that future. And to show off that potential, both Chevrolet and Ford put electric conversions in the spotlight at the 2019 SEMA show, with two different takes on battery-powered performance. Chevy’s effort, dubbed E-10, is a 1962 C-10 pickup truck that previews a potential future crate kit. Across the Las Vegas Convention Center Central Hall, Ford drew a crowd with a modern Mustang–converted by Webasto to electric power–that kept the factory six-speed manual.

Electricity is making inroads at the performance industry's biggest trade show.
