It must be challenging to keep coming up with new ways to celebrate anniversaries when a manufacturer has been around for a long time. However, it’s hard to imagine the good people of Regina, Moose Jaw, Emerald Park, and elsewhere in Southern Saskatchewan would disagree that the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray is a fitting way to mark the 70th anniversary of the Corvette brand.
There’s so much to say about the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray that it’s hard to know where to start, but let’s begin with the genuinely ground-breaking aspects of the new ‘Vette. As you probably guessed from the name, the E-Ray is the first Corvette to feature significant electrification. However, the 2024 Corvette E-Ray is a hybrid and not a fully battery-electric model. And to say the E-Ray delivers the best of both worlds of gas and electric power is something of an understatement. And if that’s not enough to grab the headlines, the E-Ray is also the first ever Corvette to feature all-wheel-drive. And like other C8 Corvettes, the E-Ray is available as a coupe and a convertible.
When automakers take gas/electric hybrid technology and focus on performance rather than fuel economy, you end up with something as extraordinary as the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray. The E-Ray gets powered by a hybrid system consisting of a 6.2-litre LT2 Small Block V-8 gas engine, a permanent magnetic drive motor, and a 1.9 kWh battery. The V-8 engine provides 495 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque for the rear wheels, and the electric motor is mounted on the front axle to provide the front wheels with an extra 160 horsepower and 125 lb.-ft. of torque. While there are conventional V-8s out there that offer more than the E-Ray’s 655 combined horsepower, the instant torque from the electric motor and the extra traction of the eAWD system produce staggering performance. The E-Ray can get you from 0 to 96 kph in 2.5 seconds, which means the Corvette could give a World Superbike or an F-18 a run for their money.
The exterior styling of the 2024 E-Ray is a lot like the Z06, which means it’s a stunning sports car in coupe or convertible body styles. Fourteen exterior colours are available, and plenty of interior and exterior styling elements let you configure the car to suit your style. And the E-Ray can be as overt or subtle as you want it to be. It even takes safety seriously with standard features such as Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, and Following Distance Indicator.
And speaking of subtle, the hybrid powertrain has much more to offer than just its face-melting speed. Driving this exciting new Corvette is much like driving any regular C8. There’s no need to worry about what the powertrain is doing as the electric motor’s electric assistance is controlled using six driver-selectable modes: Tour, Sport, Track, Weather, My Mode, and Z-Mode. There’s also a Stealth Mode for the 2024 Corvette E-Ray. When activated at start-up, Stealth Mode allows the car to drive for a limited distance using electric power only, up to a maximum speed of 72 kph. The gas V-8 only engages if the speed exceeds 72 kph, when the driver requests additional torque, or when the battery pack gets depleted.
There’s plenty more you need to hear about that makes the 2024 Corvette E-Ray one of the most desirable and exciting new cars to be released for many years. But one thing is for sure; demand for these fantastic cars will massively outstrip supply.
