Chevrolet Confirms Electric & Hybrid Assist C8 Corvettes NEXT!

This morning on Instagram the Corvette official handle confirmed they will no longer be making any more non electric C8 Corvettes after the C8 Corvette Z06.

They said the next Corvette will be a hybrid assist electric Corvette and then a FULL Electric Corvette for the ZR1, Eray, or Zora!

In addition to the amazing new Chevrolet #Corvette #Z06 coming this year, an electrified #Corvette will be available as early as next year and a fully electric version to follow. Stay tuned for more.

In the Instagram video they use you can clearly see them using an All Wheel Drive (AWD) C8 Corvette to show what’s coming. We were one of the first blogs to write about the C8 Corvette going All Wheel Drive when they teased the C8 Z07 on an All Wheel Drive Dyno in the unveil video.

A lot of the comments so far having been mixed with some people saying just build the C8 Z06 and don’t shut down the Bowling Green, Kentucky plant any further as well as not wanting an “electric Corvette”.

However, we did see people saying they are looking forward to it as well and we lean on that side. That’s the way the world is moving and although the sound and “soul” of a car is important why not have both and perhaps have one of the baddest electric sport cars to compete with the Tesla Plaid and Tesla Roadster that is coming out that has mind boggling performance of 1.99 0 to 60 and low 9 second quarter miles with out clutches or engines breaking like we see with the Twin Turbo C8 Corvettes.

Here is General Motors President Mark Reuss sits down with CNBC’s Phil LeBeau to announce the company’s plan to make an electrified Chevrolet Corvette.

One thing we know for sure is the C8 Corvette Z06 prices are going to skyrocket and go through the roof being the last flat plane crank non electric Corvette. The first Hybrid assist Corvette will most likely be the C8 Corvette E Ray we have talked about replacing the grandsport and competing with the likes of the Acura NSX

Here are what some YouTubers are saying about the all wheel drive hybrid assist C8 Corvette and the full electric Corvette that is coming next year in 2023 and beyond.

What do you think about the New electric Corvette whether its the hybrid assist electric Corvette or a full electric Corvette model?  Will the lists be as long as they are for the C8 Corvette Z06?

C8 Corvette E-Ray Hybrid Spied Testing Together With Z06? (VIDEO)

Check out this video by CarSpyMedia on YouTube where they claim to have video footage of the new C8 Z06 and C8 Corvette ERay testing together at the GM Test Center.

Some people in the comments of the video are saying this is just the base model C8 Corvette Z06 vs. the track inspired C8 Z06 with the Z07 package which included the bigger spoiler or wing. We tend to agree because the reveal is coming out for the new Z06 Corvette and they have shown a photo of one version of it already that looks like one of the Corvettes that are under camo in this video.

We have covered the C8 Corvette E Ray model before but as the C8 Z06 reveal approaches at the end of October there has been a lot more footage, photos, and videos of the new C8 Corvette models that are about to be released.

Sound on! I have taken a new spy video of the hybrid-electric Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray during some hot laps on the Nürburgring.

C8 Corvette E Ray Spotted! (Testing with Acura NSX)

Check out this video from Cars, Costs and Technology where he noticed the C8 Corvette E Ray in the C8 Corvette Z06 testing videos.

Also, there has been article after article recently talking about the C8 Corvette E Ray testing with the Acura NSX. The C8 Corvette E Ray will not have all the same specs, tires, motors as the C8 Z06 but it will be getting all wheel drive. And possibly faster than the C8 Z06 going 0 to 60 in 2 seconds.

The C8 Corvette E Ray is suppose to be a hybrid assist C8 Corvette while the C8 Corvette Zora will be full electric along with the C9 Corvette is our guess to be an all electric Corvette line up.

It makes a lot of sense to use an Acura NSX as a benchmark since it has two electric motors up front on each wheel and an electric motor on it’s V6 Twin Turbo set up that pushed out 573 HP and is all wheel drive.

This is the way cars are going as shown with the fastest production car in the world the Tesla Model S Plaid running 9.2 second quarter miles at 154 mph and is a 4 door family sedan with 3 electric 400HP motors providing 1020 horsepower to the wheel with Elon Musk sand bagging the rest of the horsepower with a software update.

Here’s the video of the C8 Corvette E Ray Spotted
