Chevrolet’s famous Project X car began its life as a regular Chevy sedan in 1957. Over the decades that followed, Project X excelled as a test vehicle for a series of advanced powertrains. Now, Project X is entering the EV era, showing off a powerful new electric motor that could play a key role in next-gen Chevrolet Performance vehicles.
Chevrolet Performance, MotorTrend, and Cagnazzi Racing collaborated on this latest Project X overhaul, swapping out a supercharged gas engine for an EV system — while retaining the car’s classic exterior looks.
The Project X electric motor generates an estimated 340 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. It gets its power from a modular 400-volt battery, which is designed with pack capacity that can be scaled to customize range, cost, weight, and other factors.
Project X also received new components like an electric brake booster, an electrohydraulic power steering pump, and modified springs to handle a shift in weight distribution.
“Project X has always served the car community by pushing the envelope with groundbreaking technologies,” said Douglas Glad, group content director for MotorTrend Group. “As the auto industry shifts rapidly toward electric vehicles, this Project X Build is just the latest in its celebrated legacy of adapting hot rodding to the powerful technology of tomorrow.”
In addition to Project X, Chevrolet is pushing the envelope with innovative EV models like the Bolt EUV and the upcoming All-Electric Silverado truck. To learn more about these models and Chevy’s exciting electric future, contact our team here at Bud Weiser Motors in Beloit, Wisconsin.
When you’re shopping for your next car, it’s a good idea to narrow down your options a bit before heading to Bud Weiser Motors so that you’re not overwhelmed by our massive selection. One way to do that is to determine whether you’re interested in a new or used vehicle. Take a look at the benefits of each to decide which is right for you.
Purchasing a new car tends to
be easier than purchasing a used car since you don’t have to worry about
inspecting a new car thoroughly for any damage from previous owners.
Accordingly, you will also have peace of mind knowing that it has never been
owned before and that it will come with the latest safety features.
If you’re shopping on a budget, a used car is the ideal choice. It comes with a lower starting price and lower insurance rate than a new car. A used car will also depreciate slowly over time since major depreciation will have already occurred during the first couple of years. You’ll appreciate this when you eventually sell or trade in your car.
Once you’re ready to select your next vehicle, check out our inventory of pre-owned and new Chevy models at Bud Weiser Motors. View them online and then schedule a test drive at our Beloit, Wisconsin, dealership.

If you are shopping on a budget, you might think that a brand-new car is out of your price range. However, the 2020 Chevrolet Spark comes with a plethora of great features without breaking the break. That’s why it made Kelley Blue Book’s list of the 10 Cheapest Cars of 2020.
The Spark made the list for not only having a low starting
price but also for its five-year cost to own. Its maintenance requirements,
expected depreciation and fuel costs during the first few years of ownership
ensure that the car is an affordable option over time.
Perhaps one of the most impressive aspects of the Spark is
its efficient powertrain. The 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine reaches an
EPA-estimated 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, helping you save
money at the pump.*
Despite its inexpensive price, the Spark is a fantastic car
for commuting to and from work. The car is available in a broad spectrum of
color choices, including bold options, like Red Hot and Orange Burst, which
make it stand out on the street. Plus, the nimble car is easy to maneuver around
