The Ultimate All-Electric Chevy Corvette-Based Supercar Will Be Available Soon: GM President
At General Motors’ investor day on Thursday, President Mark Reuss had a lot to say about the company’s progress toward electrification. There was the typical litany of ambitious aims and upbeat sentiments, but we also learnt something new: An all-electric supercar based on the Chevrolet Corvette will be available as early as next year. This is in addition to the long-awaited “Zora,” which will undoubtedly be the peak of Corvette performance. These will be two distinct cars, according to Reuss.
To be clear, we were aware that an all-electric Corvette was on the way. Reuss stated as much in a LinkedIn post seven months ago. “In addition to the amazing new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and other gas-powered variants coming, we will offer an electrified and a fully electric, Ultium-based Corvette in the future.” What we didn’t realise was how fast it would arrive.
According to The Associated Press, Reuss stated that a Corvette-based sports vehicle will be released next year, adding, “This will again set the world standard for performance.”
