Exactly 70 years after the Corvette debuted at Motorama in New York City, Chevrolet has returned to introduce the first-ever electrified Corvette with all-wheel-drive and a powerful 6.2-litre LT2 Small Block V-8, the 2024 E-Ray.
“In 1953, the enthusiastic reaction to the Chevrolet Corvette concept created seven decades of passion, American ingenuity and performance,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors president. “E-Ray marks an inflection point: The first electrified, all-wheel-drive Corvette expands on the promise of what Corvette can deliver.”
Developed to be the Corvette owners can arrive almost anywhere, no matter the season, the new E-Ray — available in removeable roof coupe and hardtop convertible models — uses electrification to enhance the driving experience. E-Ray is also the only sports car pairing two separate propulsion systems to provide naturally aspirated V-8 power with electrified responsiveness powered by eAWD.
“Corvette has been a halo for Chevrolet since 1953,” said Scott Bell, vice-president of Chevrolet. “E-Ray’s unprecedented blend of confidence, luxury performance, sophistication and style provides a new reason for more people to experience Corvette.”
The 2024 Corvette E-Ray goes on sale in 2023, priced starting at $128,798.
