Tomorrow, we will finally see the long-awaited 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray. Chevrolet has been using social media to tease the debut of the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray, a hybrid Corvette and it debuts January 17, 2023. A week ago, a GM executive posted on Facebook “70 Years ago Jan 17th---the day C1 Debuted at the Waldorf....stay tuned....” Six days ago, Corvette posted a short video on Facebook and Instagram.
The 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray
GM President Mark Reuss confirmed last April on LinkedIn that the company was working on both a electrified and fully-electric version of the Corvette. At that time, Corvette showed the camouflaged vehicle doing winter testing.
On LinkedIn, Reuss says, “Some time ago we moved the Corvette team into the EV space in Warren, Michigan, and when we revealed the new mid-engine Corvette, I said there would be “more to come.” This morning I sat down with Phil LeBeau of CNBC and finally answered the question I’ve been asked countless times.
Yes, in addition to the amazing new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and other gas-powered variants coming, we will offer an electrified and a fully electric, Ultium-based Corvette in the future. In fact, we will offer an electrified Corvette as early as next year. Details and names to come at a later date.”
E-Ray to Debut on Major Corvette Anniversary
Tomorrow marks the 70th anniversary of the date when the first 1953 Chevrolet
Corvette was revealed at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. Chevrolet has been dancing around the exact debut of the new hybrid Corvette for months. Shortly before the holidays, a blogger captured the E-Ray configurator online before it was quickly taken down.
The Corvette video of the E-Ray shows that the hybrid looks like a cross between the Z06 and the Stingray. It is clearly a new member of the family. It is expected to be all-wheel-drive. The short video of the interior shows a hand reaching for a button labeled “Stealth”. It does not explain what the new Stealth Mode may be.
We should find out all of the answers tomorrow. As the executives said, “Stay Tuned”.
