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.

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
