2024 Corvette E-Ray
To mark the 70th anniversary of Corvette, Chevrolet debuted the 2024 Corvette E-Ray — the first-ever electrified Corvette with all-wheel drive and a powerful 6.2-liter LT2 small-block V8 engine. “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,” Reuss noted. According to Chevrolet, the Corvette E-Ray will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and complete the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds, making it the quickest production Corvette ever.
