The iconic Corvette is going all electric for the first time ever.
To mark the 70th anniversary of the debut of the Corvette, Chevrolet has debuted the first-ever fully electric model, dubbed the 2024 E-Ray.
“In 1953, the enthusiastic reaction to the Chevrolet Corvette concept kicked off seven decades of passion, performance and American ingenuity,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors president. “E-Ray, as the first electrified, all-wheel-drive Corvette, takes it a step further and expands the promise of what Corvette can deliver.”
The E-Ray will be available in removeable roof coupe and hardtop convertible models with a 6.2L LT2 Small Block V-8, an is equipped as an electric all wheel drive.
“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 E-Ray is the quickest production Corvette in history, clocking a 2.5-second 0-60 mph time before breezing through the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds. (Read more about the specs here)
