The 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray is the latest addition to the assortment of America’s favorite sports cars. The previous mid-engined C8 Corvette showed the potential innovations that the makers had in mind for this new launch. After the launch of the eight-generation Chevy Corvette, the manufacturing giant’s plan ahead was essentially announced through the appearance of the car which gave an impression that something was amiss.
The E-Ray cleared the suspicion with a 1.1-kWh lithium-ion battery pack in place of the motor engine. Made up of 80 refrigerant-chilled LG Chem pouch-type cells and a liquid-cooled power inverter, it was designed to gain and lose charge quickly, monitored through the infotainment section of the car. For efficiency, the hybrid system recharges when you coast, brake, or use the Charge+ function while driving and puts in extra power when accelerating. Truly the first production Vette of its kind, the car has an all-wheel drive along with a hybrid AWD variant powertrain through which the performance is lifted to another level. With a weight of around 100 pounds, the car is driven by an 80-pound permanent-magnet synchronous AC motor giving 160 horsepower.
The 495-hp 6.2-liter V-8 taken from the Stingray Z51 with the electric motor delivers a total of 655 horsepower. Expected to return a total of 19 mpg like the Stingray, with the purely electric drive, the E-Ray runs for the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds, becoming the fastest Corvette with a top speed above 180mph. The E-Ray is also the first production car with carbon-ceramic rotors and all-season tires. The vehicle features magnetorheological dampers, with an elongated yoke at the lower attachment point on the front dampers with a raised shock tower and a redesigned crossmember to increase the structural rigidity. Launching in the fall, the E-Ray will have two prices for the customers: $111,295 for the convertible and $104,295 for the targa.
