Chevrolet is Making an All-Electric Corvette
Recently, Chevrolet announced an electrified Corvette, which it says will be available early next year. It even released a video of an electric Corvette drifting. It was certainly a sight to behold. So what’s next for Chevrolet? Here are some details about the electrified Corvette. You can also keep an eye out for the all-electric Hummer EV, which will be available in 2019.
GM is reportedly making an all-electric Corvette. The president of General Motors announced the news on LinkedIn, hinting at the future hybrid and all-electric cars. In the meantime, a video showcasing a front-wheel-drive electric Corvette has been shared on Twitter and LinkedIn. Hopefully, this paves the way for a Corvette hybrid that hits showrooms sometime next year.
In response to the recent popularity of the electric Mustang, General Motors is working on an all-electric Corvette. While the current Corvette has a gasoline engine behind the seats, the electric model will be a different design entirely. However, the current generation Corvette will retain a gasoline engine, and the company could also release a hybrid version. An all-electric Corvette could hit showrooms by 2023.
The next Corvette could have a battery-powered electric motor. The electrified version is expected to be called the E-Ray. The electric motor will supplement the naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8. Its total output is expected to be around 650 horsepower. The E-Ray is expected to come with all-wheel drive, and a hybrid version will follow in 2025, called Zora. This version of the Corvette will use the Z06 powertrain but add 1,000 horsepower. General Motors has not yet announced how much money they plan to spend on the electric Corvette, but it has moved the team to an EV building in Warren, Michigan.
The announcement was made at the 2018 Detroit auto show. GM’s executives said they were working on an all-electric Corvette. The Corvette is just the latest electrified vehicle from GM. Last year, the auto giant announced plans for the electric Chevy Equinox and Blazer SUVs. Earlier this year, GM also announced plans to build a zero-emission Chevy Silverado pickup truck.
The Corvette EV will be a high-performance EV. GM’s president showed a new battery that uses waste heat produced during a car’s driving. The Ultium platform will also store the heat from the interior of the vehicle. The battery will also use humidity to warm the interior of the car. This is another step toward a future where GM will be building electric cars throughout its entire lineup.
Chevrolet is making an all-electric Corvette. The announcement comes after the company moved its Corvette team to an all-electric building in Warren, Michigan. Although no details were disclosed about the battery range, 0-60 mph time, or price, Reuss promised that the new vehicle is “coming soon.”
The company has committed to building a $35 billion electrified fleet by 2035, including its iconic Chevy Corvette. The Corvette’s all-electric powertrain will be based on the GM Ultium battery platform. In addition, GM has announced plans to make a battery-powered Chevrolet Silverado, Equinox, and Chevrolet Bolt. And a fully electric Chevrolet Corvette could be ready for production in 2023.
The Hummer EV is Chevrolet’s all electric version of the Chevrolet Corvette, with a record 26 months to develop. It’s equipped with an 800V DC fast charger and offers nearly 100 miles of range in 10 minutes. It also comes with a “Regen on Demand” steering-wheel paddle, which harnesses the power of regenerative braking. The HUMMER EV is built tough for the roughest terrain, with features such as a waterproof underbody camera with a wash function and replaceable lens protectors.
The electric version of the Corvette is expected to include a hybrid or plug-in hybrid system. It is currently not clear if this will be a plug-in hybrid or conventional hybrid, but GM has made the move to an all-electric building in Warren, Michigan to begin the development of its electric car lineup. Chevrolet’s all-electric Corvette could be ready for production as soon as 2017.
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has gone through a full redesign and has been moved to a mid-engine layout. This move comes as GM is working feverishly to get the all-electric Hummer EV ready for first deliveries later this year. The Hummer EV is set to debut a few months after the Corvette. Ford’s Mustang Mach-E, wrapped in Mustang design heritage, could appeal to a broader audience than other EVs.
GM also plans to sell a battery-powered version of the Corvette in 2023. It’s unclear when the battery-powered version will be available, but the EV will come in two distinct versions. The first one will be a hybrid, while the second version will be all-electric. General Motors has long been known for its internal combustion engine, but its electrification strategy is helping to meet its commitment to the environment.
The Hummer EV will be available in two models: a pickup truck and an SUV. The pickup truck will be available in 2021, with the SUV following a year later. The SUV will have a limited range, but it will be available in participating dealerships. It will be limited to low speeds and will be offered as a rebadged Chevrolet model. The EV3x and EV2x models will feature the battery-powered electric drivetrain.
Several years ago, Chevrolet announced plans to make an electrified Corvette. It is slated to go on sale early next year. The company has already electrified its Hummer and converted the car to a mid-engine supercar layout. The company has also ditched the manual transmission in favor of an automatic transmission. Regardless, the electrified Corvette is something that we’ll have to wait for, but it certainly will be an interesting car to see.
GM is facing increased pressure from Wall Street to compete with EV leaders like Tesla. The new Corvette will be the latest EV in the line of iconic Chevrolet cars. The automaker recently announced plans to make 30 new all-electric vehicles by 2035. It also has announced plans to make a fully electric pickup truck called the Silverado. The announcement comes as GM prepares to hold a CES event for its electric F-150 Lightning pickup, which has received a lot of press.
While GM has been coy about its plans to replace the small-block engine in the Corvette, it did move the Corvette team into an EV building in Warren, Michigan. GM did not disclose an estimated price or expected range, but confirmed that the electrified ‘Vette would have all-wheel drive. The company hasn’t revealed a date or price, so there’s no way to tell if the new electric Corvette will be a success or a flop.
GM’s Corvette could be a hybrid or all-electric vehicle, according to a report by General Motors. The hybrid Corvette is expected to be available next year, while the fully electric model will be available sometime after 2023. GM declined to reveal the specific release date of the electrified Corvette, nor any other details on the vehicle. However, the new electric car is slated to be available in the United States by 2023.
