On Twitter, Chevrolet announced that its Corvette would offer a new hybrid version, while an electric version would follow a little later.
A few years ago, electric cars were not always very attractive, often distinguishing themselves from thermal models by divisive and sometimes a little too futuristic lines. We think in particular of the first generation of the Nissan Leaf, but not only. Fortunately, over the years, the design has greatly improved, while the market for zero-emission cars has greatly expanded.
Now, even high-end brands are getting into it, while there are now some more than attractive electric sports cars. Among them, let us mention among others the Porsche Taycan Turbo S or the Pininfarina Battista. But another high-performance model is about to arrive in an electric version in the next few years, and this time it’s an already well-known version.
A cool new Corvette
The amazing news was announced on Twitter. Chevrolet has indeed published a short message, confirming that “an electrified Corvette will be available next year and an all-electric version will follow“. On LinkedIn, the president of General Motors, interviewed by CNBC, confirmed the arrival of this new variant, already highly anticipated, although also feared by purists.
Good news for the latter, it should nevertheless be marketed in parallel with the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 thermal, which should not disappear anytime soon, therefore. For the time being, the American firm does not give any technical information, but it is already rumored that it will be equipped with all-wheel drive, for the first time in its history.
The Chevrolet Corvette could one day be joined by the Porsche 911, which should also go zero-emission in the next few years. With this new version, and while other trendy models will follow, the American firm has one goal: to compete with Tesla. The goal is then to overtake the Californian manufacturer, currently the leader in the electric market thanks to its Model 3.
For this, General Motors plans to invest no less than 35 billion dollars in the development of its electric vehicles but also autonomous. In addition, the group recently announced its collaboration with Honda, as part of the development of a range of affordable zero-emission cars, the production of which would begin in 2027.
