It might sound like sacrilege, however the Chevrolet Corvette could possibly be supplied with a hybrid powertrain sooner or later. Furthermore, though unlikely, an all-electric Corvette hasn’t been dominated out both.
Only a few days in the past, Chevrolet revealed the brand new Corvette C8 with a mid-mounted V8 engine. Whereas, it’s a well-known 6.2-liter block, studies counsel that the unit has been designed to permit electrification sooner or later. This implies, the powertrain might get a mild-hybrid or plug-in hybrid setup, if required.
Apart from a hybrid model, Chevrolet was reportedly contemplating an all-electric Corvette as properly.
“The corporate is dedicated to a method of Zero-Zero-Zero: zero emissions, zero crashes and 0 congestion. The entire know-how rolling into this car is supposed to help that. This platform can carry plenty of various things into the longer term for Normal Motors,” Mark Reuss, President of Normal Motors mentioned.
So, we’d see a hybrid or electrical Corvette sooner or later, in any case. For now although, the mid-engined Corvette C8 can solely be had with a V8 engine producing 490 hp and 465 lb-ft or 495 hp and 470 lb-ft, in the event you go for the Z51 Efficiency Bundle.
