The C8 Corvette E-Ray Teaser Confirms Stealth Mode, Reveal on January 17th
Chevrolet is giving us one more official look at the future 2023 Corvette E-Ray, and although right now’s 24-second teaser video shared on Facebook doesn’t offer us much to view, there are a few important and pretty fascinating problems we can learn from it. Among them: we now know when the company will most likely publicly debut the hybrid, Corvette.
According to the video, the all-new Corvette E-Ray will be shown to the public on January 17th. That means we’ll have to wait less than a week until we can gaze at HyVette and learn all the delicious technical details properly.
Another thing viewers may learn from the trailer is that the 2023 E-Ray will feature a pure EV driving mode – which Chevrolet is calling “Stealth” – which implies the car will be capable of travelling for a long distance with entirely quiet battery energy. Although this isn’t exactly new in the world of hybrid autos, it’s nevertheless remarkable to witness a Corvette moving in complete quiet. There’s no word on EV range, but there doesn’t seem to be a charging door on the E-body. Ray’s
The movie also provided us with our first official glimpse of the E-Ray without any camouflage. The majority of the time, it seems to be a standard C8 Corvette. Having said that, rapid photos and a 24-second movie don’t give the spectator a good look at the E-Ray. Despite all, it is a teaser.
All of that being said, as previously reported, the E-configurator Ray’s accidentally went live in December. It may potentially be gone now, but screenshots are endless.
The E-Ray shares the larger bodywork of its internal combustion sister, the C8 Z06, but has a unique exhaust arrangement. Two exhausts are positioned on each side of the car, but the Z06 has quad tips all through the centre.
We stated in November 2022 that the E-Ray would almost probably couple the tried-and-true 6.2-liter LT2 V8 with an electronic powertrain on the front axle. This indicates that the main hybrid Corvette might also be the primary all-wheel drive Corvette. There are also studies of further hybrid variations in the works, which may result in a Vette with more than 1,000 horsepower.
