Corvette EV Officially In The Works  

Chevrolet set the release date for the 2025 Corvette EV for 2024. General Motors did not confirm the release date, but this appears to be the most likely route. Some experts speculate that this car will include three or four motors under the hood and will generate up to 1,000 horsepower.

We could expect to see some of the features from the Chevy Silverado EV pickup truck in the Corvette EV. For example, we will see the Ultium battery make a reappearance. The Ultium battery has energy options ranging from 50 to 200 kWh, which puts it up to 400 miles on a full charge.

GM announced plans to release a hybrid model as well. You will likely find it listed as the Corvette E-Ray. Most experts believe that the hybrid model will release sooner than the EV model.

Be aware that since it won't release until 2024, the design of the Corvette EV may look different from what we see today. GM also hasn't revealed photos or videos of the Corvette EV, so we can only speculate about its appearance and features. We will have to wait before we know more about the interior of the Corvette EV as well. Most expect it will resemble the past Corvettes with a two-seat layout like what you see with the C8 Corvette.

For the hybrid model, we see that it operates with front-wheel drive. That matters because we never saw front-wheel drive before with the past Corvette models. They all operated with rear-wheel drive, which gives the car greater power and control when turning corners fast.

One of the challenges that face the sports car market comes from how electric cars require an even higher level of performance. The Corvette EV will steer around many of these obstacles with grace. However, this explains why we will see the hybrid model before the EV model. It will require time for GM to understand the specifics to build the best performance vehicle.
