The 2024 E-Ray Is A ‘Vette Like No Other – Full Review by Doug DeMuro
When Corvette engineers started thinking about putting an electric motor into the front of a C8 Stingray, their primary focus was on factors other than range. Their goal was to enhance performance, accessibility, and overall user-friendliness. The outcome of this effort, the 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray, stands as the quickest and most technologically advanced Corvette in its history.
The 2024 Corvette E-Ray is a mid-engine, all-wheel-drive, V8-powered hybrid supercar, boasting a combined output of 655 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. Nestled within its expanded chassis, which it shares with the Corvette Z06, is a 1.9 kWh battery pack. This battery contributes 160 HP to the front axle, while the 6.2-liter LT2 V8 derived from the base Stingray channels 495 HP to the rear wheels. The electrified enhancements result in an approximate 250-pound increase in curb weight over the Z06, bringing the E-Ray’s weight to 3775 pounds. Despite the added weight, the E-Ray accelerates from 0 to 60 in a mere 2.5 seconds and conquers the quarter-mile in just 10.5 seconds.
