Chevrolet has not yet specified the technical details of the novelty, so it is unknown whether it will be soft or plug-in hybrid. But in the video you can see that the car will be all-wheel drive. At the same time, the company also announced the fully electric version of Corvette, which will be released “later”.
By the way, the hybrid Chevy Corvette was even seen by spies on the Nurburgring track. Moreover, in 2020, a document with a list of new versions of Corvette in the coming years appeared on the network. According to it, the Corvette Grand Sport Model will receive 6.2-liter, 600 hp V8 engine, the torque – 678 nm. Corvette Zora (2025) looks even more interesting with 5.5-liter turbo V8, which will be able to give 1000 hp, and torque – 1322 nm. If it is a plug-in hybrid, the car will also be able to drive about 56 km.
As for the fully electric version of Chevy Corvette, there is almost no information. In the same 2020, during his campaign, Joe Biden stated that GM was working on the Corvette EV model, which will be able to accelerate up to 200 miles/h (322 km/h). However, the company’s press secretaries refused to comment then.
