Chevy Corvette E-Ray Hybrid Spied At The Ring

Author: |

These photos, according to Motor1 sources, show the hybrid Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray testing at the Nürburgring. However, we cannot be certain that this is the case. The body of this Corvette is virtually identical to that of the new Z06. The only significant difference is that it has two exhaust pipes at each rear corner, whereas the Z06 has a center-mounted exhaust system.

A purported E-Ray with a similar appearance at the back was shown in a previous espionage video. Early instances of the Z06 had a similar look, thus we can't rule out the possibility that these supposed E-Rays are really Z06 test mules.

The E-Ray is expected to utilize a 6.2-liter LT2 V8 engine with an electric motor driving the front axle, giving it an all-wheel drive. The output is said to be between 600 and 650 horsepower.

It wouldn't make sense for the first hybrid Corvette to be somewhat less powerful than the current Z06.

The E-Ray is expected to arrive in 2023, with a starting price of less than $100,000. Later, the Corvette Zora model was said to include electric motors on each axle in addition to the V8 engine with a total output of about 1,000 horsepower. The E-Ray is expected to arrive around 2025.
