The 2024 E-Ray Makes A Dramatic Entrance On The Corvette’s 70th Birthday

2024 E-Ray Debut

On the 70th anniversary of the Chevy Corvette, first introduced at Motorama in New York City, the automaker returned to show off its metamorphosed fully-electric version. Spinning off the Stingray moniker, the 2024 E-Ray is an all-wheel-drive (AWD) monster with a dynamic 6.2L LT2 Small Block V-8.

“In 1953, the enthusiastic reaction to the Chevrolet Corvette concept kicked off seven decades of passion, performance and American ingenuity,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors president. “E-Ray, as the first electrified, all-wheel-drive Corvette, takes it a step further and expands the promise of what Corvette can deliver.”

This new Vette, which comes in either a removable roof coupe or hardtop convertible, uses its electric power to augment the driving experience with a fierce straight-line performance, all-weather protection, and race-car-like capabilities that succeed thanks to eAWD.

The E-Ray is the only sports vehicle that matches two separate propulsion systems to provide a naturally aspirated V-8 power with swift responsiveness powered by eAWD.

“Corvette has been a halo for Chevrolet since 1953,” said Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet. “E-Ray’s unprecedented blend of confidence, luxury performance, sophistication, and style provides a new reason for more people to experience the Corvette.”  

The Stingray E-Ray is the fastest production Vette in history, scoring a 2.5-second 0-60 mph time before zooming through the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds.

“Corvettes must provide an exhilarating driving experience on backroads and tracks, and E-Ray nails it,” said Tadge Juechter, chief executive engineer, Corvette. “The electrification technology enhances the feeling of control in all conditions, adding an unexpected degree of composure.”

The 6.2L LT2 Small Block V-8 is responsible for the high-intensity drive, producing 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. It works with an electric motor that channels an extra 160 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels using a 1.9 kWh battery pack. Ultimately, this amplified Corvette produces a combined 655 horsepower from the electric motor and V-8 engine.

Upscale Design  

The appearance of the E-Ray keeps its sporty and performance-centered style from the previous Corvettes. The car also maintains its wide-body Z06 proportions, with fitting wide wheels that allow for better torque delivery. The alloy wheels even have an excellent twisted five-spoke star design that solely belongs to the E-Ray.

“There’s never been a Corvette like E-Ray, and its sophisticated design reflects that,” said Phil Zak, executive design director, Global Chevrolet. “It starts with the body color trim, which draws your full attention to the exotic proportions of the E-Ray. The interiors allow customers to reflect their individual personalities with their choice of color executions that provide a refined or dynamic sport look and feel.” 

Standout design features include:

  • Four aluminum wheel finishes
  • Fourteen exterior color choices, like the new 2024 Riptide Blue, Seawolf Gray, and Cacti
  • A special body-length stripe package in Electric Blue
  • Standard carbon flash badging
  • Optional black exhaust tips and bright badging
  • Optional carbon fiber ground effects
  • Available carbon fiber wheels in carbon flash, visible carbon fiber finish, or visible carbon fiber with a red stripe

The all-electric Vette also brings in a new Artemis Dipped interior, with harmonious deep green tones on almost every surface. This will be the only color available on the new E-Rays. There are several options for shoppers when customizing their new ride, such as two carbon fiber trim packages, three seat choices, seven interior colors, and much more.

On top of this, new Charge+ and Stop/Start buttons are featured on the console, along with advancements to the infotainment system and instrument cluster centered at allowing a more cohesive appearance.

And Later…

The 2024 Corvette E-Ray is set to go on sale this year (2023) with a starting MSRP of $104,2954 (plus destination fee) for the 1LZ coupe and $111,2954 (plus destination fee) for the 1LZ convertible model. Production is ready to go at GM’s Bowling Green Assembly facility in Kentucky from North American and globally sourced parts.

The Big Reveal For The 2024 Corvette E-Ray Is Set This Week Tuesday

2024 AWD Corvette E-Ray

Chevrolet recently revealed a teaser for their upcoming electric Corvette E-Ray, featuring revving noises similar to your standard internal combustion engine, only to slyly show the quiet EV driving in the next scene. Though a full reveal of the electric Vette model would have been ideal, we’re still pumped to see all that Chevy offers.

GM president Mark Reuss spilled the beans in April of last year, “We will offer an electrified and a fully electric, Ultium-based Corvette in the future.”

Though word of a fully-electrified Corvette EV has yet to be officially dropped, there has been talk for a few months that the company was going to shake up the Corvette lineup and their EV brand as a whole, involving SUVs and four-door iterations. For those wondering if the Corvette EV was going to shake things up, a four-door SUV Corvette will certainly (for better or for worse) cause a frenzy.

Thankfully, we don’t have to wait much longer, as the next piece to this mystery is scheduled to be revealed tomorrow, January 17, in the Big Apple. It also marks the 70th anniversary of the debut of the original Corvette in 1952 at the Waldorf Astoria.

Corvette revealed at GM Motorama

On January 17, 1953, a prototype Chevrolet Corvette sports car debuted at General Motors (GM) Motorama auto show at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. The Corvette, named for a fast type of naval warship, would eventually become an iconic American muscle car and remains in production today.

Likely the most intriguing part of all this is the all-wheel-drive (AWD) system if the internal combustion engine and electric motors intertwine. The question remains if that will be the case. Then, if so, how?

For example, a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) combustion engine could add charge to the front-wheel-drive (FWD) EV motor through regen or an alternator power cable. A considerable battery and plug will enable drivers to do simple city driving without engaging the gasoline engine. The famous automaker indicated that an AWD model could be the first electric Corvette that doesn’t spin out of control during snowy seasons.

For years, the parent company, General Motors, has been saying “EVs for everyone”; however, the company (like most other automakers) is still in the initial stages of fulfilling that promise. For the time being, only a few high-end or high-value vehicles of the brand have been pushed, like the Cadillac Lyriq and GMC Hummer EV Electrek Car of the Year 2022 winner), and the Bolt EV.

Although more than an electric Stingray E-Ray will be needed to fill out the middle-man, Chevrolet alone has three big launches scheduled for this year. Namely, the (fleets only) Silverado EV in the spring, the swift Blazer SS EV in the summer, and the value-centered Equinox EV in the fall.

All The Dirt On The Upcoming 2024 Chevrolet E-Ray

The Chevy Corvette has been an iconic staple in the history of American sports cars. Its first iteration dating back to 1953, this two-door luxury Stingray has captured the hearts of sports enthusiasts and general audiences on a wide scale.

Now, this Vette nameplate is making headlines with its latest iteration for 2024, specifically the electric E-Ray. Here’s the latest!

The 2024 Chevrolet E-Ray

The Stingray has now become the E-Ray. Parent company General Motors already trademarked the name in 2015, then renewed it in August 2020. Though trademarks don’t always transition to the production phase, more than likely, Chevrolet will bring the E-Ray onto the highways and race tracks.

What Do We Know About The Engine?

Regarding the E-Ray’s powertrain, the Chevy company keeps things under wraps. However, there is talk that this electrified Stingray may arrive with the same 6.2-liter V8 engine from the current C8 Corvette but with the addition of either one or two electric motors. The arrangement of these motors could lead to an all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. The output will likely be around 650 horsepower.

Due to the electric motors and the possible AWD, the Stingray E-Ray will perform much better than the regular Vette car. Contingent on how powerful the electric motors are, the E-Ray may be even swifter with 60 mph than the Corvette Z06.

What Type Of Electric Vehicle Is The E-Ray?

The all-new Corvette E-Ray will likely be a hybrid of some sort, perhaps even a PHEV (plug-in hybrid) variation. Both have similar components, but PHEVs have larger battery packs that allow them to travel longer distances on fully electrified power. These types of hybrids can also get their juice at a regular charging station, while hybrid vehicles get their source of energy from regenerative braking. Images of the car’s configurator showed a “Regen on Demand” button inside, suggesting that the vehicle will have different levels of regenerative braking.

Indeed, the first iteration of the E-Ray won’t be an all-electric vehicle, as the automaker has already confirmed that a fully-electric version will be coming in the future.

Exterior Changes

As far as the aesthetics are concerned, the leaked images of the 2024 E-Ray revealed that this speedy car bares much resemblance to the regular Stingray car. Although the front fascia has a similar style to the Z06, the leaked images from the company’s configurator showed slightly augmented front fins on the fascia. From the rear end, it’s expected that there will be quad exhaust outlets that retreat from the side of the car, along with the added vents on the rear bumper.

It’s also expected that the E-Ray will be available in unique exterior paint colors encompassing Cacti Green, Sea Wolf gray, and a new variation of blue.

The 2024 Chevrolet E-Ray is scheduled to arrive in the summer of this year, and when the time comes to make a purchase, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We sell a wide range of vehicles from the brand in several different shapes and sizes.

All-New 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray Discovered in Leak

The all-new 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray was recently discovered in a leak. Discovered by a MidEngineCorvetteForum member, the Corvette E-Ray was spotted while the member was playing with the configurator tool. While no performance standards were uncovered, it confirmed that the Corvette E-Ray would be coming to markets and that the sports car would be a hybrid. A company representative of Corvette Blogger further confirmed the leak by stating that Corvette fans should remain patient. Chevrolet has stated that two new sports cars were on the way, so the E-Ray is most likely one of them. The automaker has also been focused on its EV lineup, so it makes sense that the E-Ray would be a hybrid. We’ll take a closer look at the 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray and see what consumers can expect.

2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray Confirmed

The 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray was recently discovered thanks to a MidEngineCorvetteForum member. The member stumbled upon the hybrid sports car while using the Corvette configurator. Although no performance standards were revealed, it still proves that the E-Ray is alive and on its way. A Corvette Blogger representative further confirmed this, who stated that Corvette fans should stay tuned for more. The screenshots from the forum member indicate that the hybrid sports car should arrive in the summer of 2023. The 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray should also come with several paint options: Cacti, Riptide Blue, and Sea-Wolf Gray.

The discovery of the Corvette E-Ray is excellent news. While Chevrolet may have wanted to host a more grandiose reveal, the cat is out of the bag. General Motors president Mark Reuss recently stated that two new Chevy sports cars were on the way. One has been said to be a new version of the Corvette C8, while the other was left unclear. Thankfully, this latest leak has confirmed that the next sports car to arrive from Chevy will be the Corvette E-Ray. Looking at the screenshot, the sports car appears to have a similar body style to the Z06 but with wider hips. It also features quad exhausts, further indicating it will be a hybrid.

Based on the leaked screenshot, the 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray also appears to have a button on the left of the center console indicating that the sports car will feature a regenerative braking system. Hybrids and EVs typically utilize this system to harvest energy that would be lost while braking. The system then puts that energy back into the battery. The sports car also has a button for start/stop technology which will help improve the engine’s efficiency. The E-Ray does not appear to have a charging port, which means it will not be a plug-in hybrid. Overall, it’s good news to have the hybrid 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray confirmed. Consumers can expect an all-electric sports car to arrive soon, but we can focus on the Corvette E-Ray.

Two All-New Chevy Sports Cars Are on the Way According to GM President

Chevrolet has two all-new sports cars on the way. This news comes directly from General Motors president Mark Reuss who said that a pair of Chevy performance vehicles will arrive in 2024. Reuss previously hinted at the introduction of an all-electric Corvette in April which leads many to believe one of these new vehicles may be exactly that. The 2023 Chevy Corvette recently received some new performance upgrades so the introduction of an all-new Corvette is exciting. Especially if it arrives as an electric version with the same high performance everyone loves from the sports car. While not much information was revealed, we’ll see what Reuss said and what consumers can expect from Chevrolet.

Is There An Electric Chevy Corvette on the Way?

According to General Motors (GM) president Mark Reuss, there will be two new Chevy sports cars arriving in 2024. President Reuss had previously stated that an all-electric Corvette would be coming on the brand’s Ultium platform. Alongside an electric Corvette would be a hybrid version of the sports car. While Reuss did not disclose any definitive information about the electric and hybrid Corvette, he said that the names and performance specs would be released as they neared their debut. Fast forward to now and we still do not have much information. All we know is that two sports cars with the Chevy badge are coming as soon as 2024.

According to Reuss, one of the two sports cars will be a new version of the Corvette C8. Currently, the C8 is set to arrive with a powerful V8 engine that will allow the Corvette to exceed 200 mph. Whether this new version will be an all-electric or hybrid version we’re not sure. Speculation is that this new Corvette will carry the E-Ray moniker which was discovered in recent trademark filings. As a successor to the C8, the electric Corvette would likely feature a V8 engine with a front-mounted electric motor. It would also likely have all-wheel drive.

As for the other sports car, Reuss did not mention the name Corvette. This does not mean that the second car will be something entirely new, but rather it could be the long-rumored Zora. This potential hybrid sports car could carry also carry a V8 engine. Reuss mentioned that it would “set the standard of the world for performance for Chevrolet.” This is a bold claim so whatever it may be, it’s certain to be a high-performance vehicle. For now, we’ll be staying tuned for more information.

The Marvelous History Of The Chevy Z06 Corvette

The iconic Chevrolet Corvette has gone through many changes and iterations over the years. Fans of the brand are likely more familiar with the upcoming mid-engine 2023 Z06, but its origins actually date back to 1962. Let’s explore just how far this exotic vehicle has come.

The Original 1963 Corvette Z06

Zora Arkus-Duntov is considered one of the greats in automotive history for his cultivation of the sporty Corvette of 1963. The Belgian-born American engineer was a racing enthusiast, and he believed that General Motors (GM) selling point was an optional package for Corvette lovers in the racing industry. This fostered the then unfamiliar RPO (Regular Production Option) box on the vehicle’s order sheet.

Nearly all of these coupes were powered by a 360-hp 327-cubic-inch V-8, four-speed manual transmission, and Positraction rear axle. The Z06 package could be had with a larger 36.5-gallon fiberglass fuel tank that made way for longer track sessions, leading to monikers such as “tanker” and “big tank.”

The 2001 Corvette Z06

By the time C3 or C4 generations of the Corvette came about, Z06-badged models were non-existent. To be frank, Chevy didn’t even bother to produce another Z06 nearly 40 years after the 1963 introduction. Fortunately, the company eventually decided to bring back the race-inspired car for the Corvette C5, in 2001. It followed a similar style to the OG Z06 by making performance the ultimate priority, even becoming one of the first production cars to lap the esteemed Nürburgring track in less than 8 minutes.

The 2006 Corvette Z07

Once lovers of the Corvette got the chance to experience the ultimate thrill of the C5 Z06, Chevy followed it up with something far more exhilarating. In 2006, the Z07 cranked up its track capability, while also giving it a special aluminum frame that the company claimed was 136 pounds lighter than the steel structure on the traditional version. It also had an upmarket 505-hp 7.0-liter V-8 LS7 engine. During this time, the LS7 was the most powerful Corvette ever produced and implemented technology from the corporating racing program.

The 2015 Corvette Z06

When the fourth version of the Z06 came into fruition in 2015, it came packing heat with a hellish 650-hp supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. The C7 also had many firsts, which included an available automatic transmission, along with a targa top and convertible body styles.

2023 Z06 Corvette Zenith

Saving the best for last is of course the 2023 mid-engine Corvette Z06. Clearly, the most fantastical Vette in the history of Vettes is powered by a naturally aspirated flat-plane-crank 5.5-liter V-8, exceeding its predecessors with 670 horsepower.

This special Corvette has been augmented for track duties like its forefathers. The 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels (with optional carbon-fiber versions) and a slew of chassis advances are intended to help this sports god get every minute second that it can from every lap, even more so when the more intense Z07 track package, that comes with added aerodynamics, higher spring rates, carbon-ceramic rotors, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires, are blended into the Vette’s engine configuration.

Chevrolet to Offer ‘Build Your Own Engine Program’ for 2023 Corvette Z06

2023-corvette-z06

Chevrolet will be bringing back its ‘Build Your Own Engine’ program for the 2023 Corvette Z06. The automaker will allow consumers to have more control of their engine and how it is assembled. Consumers can also make use of the online configuration tool to customize their Corvette how they want. Chevrolet has been steadily making small adjustments and improvements to the all-new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 to ensure the sports car offers the highest performance yet. With a max speed of 195 mph, consumers will have one of the most powerful Corvettes yet. This program will allow consumers to cooperate with Chevy technicians as they build their Corvette Z06 engine. Chevy has offered the program before, but we’ll take a look at what consumers can expect. 

Chevy to Bring Back Corvette Z06 Engine Program 

Chevrolet recently announced that it will be bringing back its ‘Build Your Own Engine’ program for the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06. The program will be available in the second quarter of 2023. Consumers will be able to work directly with Chevy technicians as they assemble the engine for their Corvette Z06. This cooperation will ensure that consumers get the most out of their Corvette. Chevy will only offer the program for Corvettes using the LT6 powertrain which means the Z06. About the program, Chevrolet plant director Kai Spande said,

“This is a real challenge for us because this is such a new engine and it’s much more complex than what we’ve ever done in the past,” said Kai Spande. “We’ve done some things that I think will be very much appreciated by those that build their engine,” Spande continued.

Chevrolet has offered the Build Your Own Engine program in the past. Previously, consumers would work directly alongside assembly-line workers as they assembled the engine. This time, however, Chevy will be designating a specific area of the Bowling Green Kentucky factory in which participants will cooperate. This allows consumers to help professionals assemble their engines without having to go down to the assembly line. Chevrolet had initially offered the Build Your Own Engine program for $5,000. Given the new accommodations, however, the price may see an increase. Still, the opportunity to have direct control over your 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 engine is a great chance to ensure you get exactly what you want out of it.

5 The Reasons Why The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Is A Sports Car Enthusiast’s Dream

The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is arguably the most exhilarating sports car since its first inception. Lovers of this muscle car and car enthusiasts in the same vein will have several reasons to brag about the latest Vette model. Here are 5 The Reasons Why The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Is A Sports Car Enthusiast’s Dream.

Sensational and Powerful Styling

With every iteration, the Vette car has evolved its style, with the Chevy C8 proving to be no exception. Typically, supercar fans only care about the design and performance of the vehicle, and there’s certainly no dismissing the aesthetically pleasing and awestruck the Z06 truly is.

The performance of the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 is just as memorizing. The most aerodynamic model to come off of the Chevrolet production line. Its exceptionally arresting alloy wheels, rear lights, and particularly the rear spoiler are by far spotlight features of the outer body. Simultaneously, the vehicle’s angular curves make it an event in and of itself.

The Sharpest Handling

The newly standard Corvette is an extraordinary mechanical being, but the Z06 cranks it up several notches with awe-inspiring styling and handling that will exceed your expectations. This incredible machine has a track-centered suspension configuration and a chassis that finally measures up to its monstrous sibling.

With the help of its Z07 package, the mid-engine C8 Z06 flaunts nearly 30 percent higher ride frequencies. Likely one of the best features in this highly supported Corvette model is the participation of a helper spring in the latest C8 Z06, which enables the coil spring to go for a full rebound while doing away with any wheel travel leading up to it.

The Energetic Naturally-Aspirated V8 Engine

Seeing how gas-powered staples are slowly making their way towards retirement and any new performance-centered vehicle arriving at dealerships involves some sort of electrification or turbocharged engines, General Motors made the decision to make its Z06 car the flag carrier of unrestricted V8 power by decking it out with the most ferocious naturally-aspirated V8 ever produced.

The C8 Z06 Unparalleled Acceleration

The almighty Chevy Corvette Z06 brings out the most powerful output of 670 horsepower with 460 lb-ft of torque. The naturally-aspirated 5.5-liter V8 powertrain harmonizes with sophisticated tech to produce exceptional power, all of which pushes the Corvette from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.6 seconds.

This fantastic acceleration time puts this iconic vehicle into the circle of today’s best supercars, such as the Ferrari F8 Tributo, the Huracan Evo, and the Audi R8. In fact, the Z06 actually topples these vehicles in the 0-60 department, as their figures amount to  2.9s, 2.9s, and 3.1s respectively.

More Affordable And Reliable Than Most Supercars

The Chevy Corvette has also been seen as an inexpensive American super god, and that’s one of the best USPs (unique selling proposition) the vehicle has always had over its rein.

For a sports car, at $106,395, (plus destination fee), the Corvette is considered to be one of the most affordable vehicles in its segment, and this is also considering how well it outranks European rivals in its performance.

The top speed for the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 has been revealed. According to Chevrolet’s chief engineer Josh Holder, the sports car will have a top speed of 195 mph. While this is not over 200 mph like a previous rumor indicated, this is still an impressive speed. The 2023 Corvette Z06 has been teased for some time now, but order banks have opened up. The high-performance luxury sports car is expected to arrive with a more powerful engine as well as a new look.

2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 Top Speed Confirmed

The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has had its top speed confirmed. According to Chevrolet’s chief engineer Josh Holder, the luxury sports car will have a top speed of 195 mph.

Chevrolet has upgraded this engine to provide high performance. It boasts a flat-plane crank design with a 5.56 drive ratio for increased acceleration. The 5.5L also allows drivers to hit a 0-60 mph time of 2.6 seconds. 

The 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 will come available with a Z07 performance package. This package will increase the aerodynamics of the sports car by equipping it with spring and anti-roll bar rates. The Z07 package will also add a huge rear wing spoiler. This will add about 734 pounds of downforce thus increasing the Corvette’s overall performance.

Inside the 2023 Corvette Z06, owners can expect a fighter jet-inspired cockpit that gives drivers a heightened feeling of control. With customizable seats and a raced-designed steering wheel, owners will have full access to an array of driver assist features. This includes a performance data recorder, or PDR, that allows drivers to capture their acceleration speed, braking, and gear choices. For entertainment, the high-performance sports car offers a 12-inch touchscreen system with Chevrolet 3 Infotainment. The system is also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Order banks have already opened for the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06. The sports car will start at an MSRP of $105,000 (plus destination fee).
