A mid-engine Corvette seemed like a huge break from tradition when the C8 generation hit the market in late 2019, and Chevy further modernized the sports car with the introduction of the 2024 E-Ray hybrid model. But already the Corvette is set to go through another permutation when a fully electric version is added to the lineup. Chevrolet hasn’t released many details yet, but it has confirmed that the Corvette EV is on the way. We expect a powerful, three- or four-motor powertrain with around 1000 horsepower and standard all-wheel drive. The two-seat interior will likely carry over from the gasoline-powered Corvette. The race is on for an all-electric sports car, with upcoming rivals such as the Dodge Challenger eMuscle and an electric version of the Porsche 718 both eyeing the same performance niche of the EV marketplace.
What’s New for 2025?
The Corvette EV will be a new addition to the Corvette lineup when it hits the market. We expect to see it debut in 2024 as a 2025 model.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
We expect the Corvette EV to cost a lot more than the gas-powered base model’s $62,195 starting price, but Chevrolet hasn’t said exactly how much the car will cost or what trim levels will be offered. It’s also possible that in addition to the coupe, the Corvette EV could also be offered as a convertible.
