The Fastest Corvette in History…The Chevy Corvette E-Ray

It’s a momentous week for Chevrolet. Not only is it the 70th anniversary of the iconic Corvette, but Chevrolet is introducing an all-new version of the Corvette that is sure to turn heads, get hearts racing and break records. Electrified for the first time with an AWD system that can keep this baby on the road in any weather, the new Corvette E-Ray could be the best hybrid car of 2023.

Power and Performance

The Corvette E-Ray combines the classic design and performance of the Corvette with cutting-edge electric technology. What makes this hybrid Corvette unique is that it is powered by two separate motors that combine to make this legendary beast the fastest Corvette in history, going 0-96km in just 2.5 seconds. A 6.2-litre V8 engine powers the rear wheels with 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, a 1.9 kWh battery sends juice to an electric motor that powers the front wheels for an additional 160 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. This combination provides the E-Ray with an impressive output of 655 horsepower, making it one of the most powerful Corvettes ever produced.

The electric motor in the E-Ray is powered by a state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery pack that provides the car with a range of up to 6km on electric power alone. In “Stealth Mode,” the E-Ray can be driven all-electric for short trips around town, reducing emissions and saving on fuel costs.

The E-Ray also features advanced technologies designed to enhance performance and driving experience. Equipped with a fully adjustable suspension system, the E-Ray provides a smooth and comfortable ride on the highway while also delivering outstanding handling performance on the track.

Styling and Design

The exterior of the E-Ray is inspired by the classic Corvette design, amplified by modern touches that give the car a more aggressive and sporty look. It is sleek and aerodynamic, featuring wider fenders and quarter panels than the Stingray. It also has large, lightweight alloy wheels designed to improve the car’s handling and performance.

The interior of the E-Ray features high-quality leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an incredible cockpit-like design. A large touchscreen display keeps you up to speed about the vehicle’s battery power and several performance parameters. The all-new E-Ray App, located at the centre screen, gives you a quick look at performance data, RWD vs FWD power and vehicle information. The advanced infotainment system also provides access to:

  • 14-speaker Bose sound system
  • Navigation system
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto

Safety and Driver Assistance Features

The E-Ray also has many advanced safety features, such as:

  • lane departure warning
  • forward collision warning
  • automatic emergency braking
  • Head-Up display

It can also be equipped with an available Performance Data Recorder to help you become a better driver. 

The Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray offers a perfect blend of classic design and modern technology, making it one of the most anticipated vehicles of the year. As the Corvette celebrates its 70th anniversary, the E-Ray is a fitting tribute to this American icon. It is a must-have for any Corvette enthusiast or anyone looking for a powerful, high-performance sports car.
