You can spend as long as you like watching cars go by in Thornhill, North York, Markham, Richmond Hill, and the rest of the Greater Toronto Area; you’re likely to see something like the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray. On the surface, the E-Ray looks a lot like a Z06. However, get beyond the stunning coupe and convertible exterior styling, and you’ll find a revolutionary new car that will redefine how we think of hybrids now and in the future.
A quick answer to what’s so special about the E-Ray would be to say “everything.” Although it shares much of its stunning exterior styling with other current Corvettes like the Z06, the E-Ray marks Corvette’s 70th anniversary in its own individual style. The E-Ray is available in 14 exterior colours, and four alloy wheel finishes are available. The car also features an E-Ray-exclusive body-length stripe package in Electric Blue; standard carbon flash badging; black exhaust tips; bright badging; and carbon fiber ground effects are also available to make the E-Ray your own. Cutting-edge carbon fiber wheels are also available in carbon flash, visible carbon fiber finish, or visible carbon fiber with a red stripe.
Iconic is a word often associated with the Corvette, and rightly so. It may be early to bestow such a title on a brand-new model, but you can see that it’s inevitable when you learn about the E-Ray powertrain and its performance. Although the name could lead you to imagine the E-Ray is fully-electric, this incredible new Corvette is actually a self-charging hybrid. The car’s hybrid system comprises a 6.2-litre LT2 Small Block gas V-8 powering the rear wheels, an electric motor on the front axle powering the front wheels, and a 1.9 kWh battery pack.
The gas engine brings 495 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque to the party, and the front-mounted electric motor provides an additional 160 horsepower and 125 lb.-ft. of almost instantaneous torque. While the combined 655 horsepower may not be class-leading, the performance certainly is. The E-Ray can propel you from 0 to 96 kph in a staggering 2.5 seconds, and the quarter-mile takes 10.5 seconds at 209 kph.
If you think driving such a powerful and technologically-advanced beast as the 2024 Corvette E-Ray is only for experts, you couldn’t be more wrong. Driving the E-Ray is just like driving any car, but faster. The E-Ray transmission is a regular eight-speed dual-clutch unit, and the car features six driver-selectable modes that decide how much assistance the electric motor provides, depending on the conditions. Tour, Sport, Track, Weather, My Mode, and Z-Mode models are available, and there’s also a Charge+ feature for maximizing the battery’s state of charge.
The E-Ray also comes with many features that make daily driving as safe and easy as it is today with more mundane vehicles. Standard features include Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, and Following Distance Indicator. An Active Fuel Management system uses the electric motor to extend four-cylinder operation in certain driving conditions to help reduce fuel consumption. And there’s even a Stealth Mode, which, when activated, allows the E-Ray to operate on electric power only over a limited distance.
