Corvette Of The Day: 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray Convertible

Chevrolet has thrown a curveball into the sports car arena with the release of the 2024 Corvette E-Ray. This groundbreaking mid-engine hybrid electric Corvette not only pushes the boundaries of traditional performance but also embraces all-season versatility with its all-wheel-drive system and unique hybrid powertrain.

Based in part on the eighth-generation, mid-engine Corvette Z06 platform, the new Corvette E-Ray once more features a 6.2L LT2 small-block V8 engine.  However, the car also uses features electrified technologies that vastly enhance the car’s torque, straight-line performance, all weather-confidence, and overall touring capabilities to give us a Corvette that can be driven anywhere, at any time, regardless of the season.

Available in both coupe and convertible platforms, the Corvette E-Ray combines the enormous power and torque of the 495 horsepower/470 lb-ft. of torque, LT2 engine with an electric motor that produces an additional 160 horsepower and 125 lb-ft through the car’s front wheels via a 1.8 kWh battery pack to create a combined output of 655 horsepower and more torque than any Corvette that came before it.

The result? A Corvette that can now launch from 0-60 in just 2.5 seconds and race up to well above 100 miles per hour in just a few seconds more.   It also produces a documented quarter-mile time of just 10.5 seconds.

The Corvette E-Ray also comes equipped with all-season tires, emphasizing Chevrolet’s commitment to making this sports car an all-weather companion. Forget about limiting yourself to fair-weather track days – Chevrolet encourages you to make this your daily driver.
