By, 2023-01-16



Q Motor - Chevrolet officially unveiled the first Corvette with an all-wheel drive system in the history of the model, and the first Corvette with a hybrid system as well, under the name E-Ray, with amazing performance and acceleration rates and a power exceeding 655 horsepower.


Like the rest of the Corvette classes, it will be available in coupe and convertible body shape.


Best acceleration in Corvette history!


One of the most prominent features of the car is its acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.5 seconds, which makes it the best acceleration in the history of the Corvette.


The Price


The price of the new Corvette E-Ray will start from $104,000 – 389,000 riyals before taxes, which makes it much more expensive than the standard class, which starts at $64,500 in the United States, and the car shares most of its design features with the Z06 class with a wider and longer structure and smaller rear air vents.


It also got quad exhaust pipes similar to the standard model with the use of a 6.2-liter 8-cylinder engine with the same power as the standard model with 495 hp and a torque of 637 Nm, with the addition of one electric motor on the front axle with a power of 160 hp and a torque of 170 Nm to move the front wheels.


Silent Electric Driving


The new Corvette is not a plug-in hybrid, which means that it does not need to be charged with a traditional electrical socket, but rather relies on braking energy and additional energy coming from the engine to charge the battery.


The car also comes with a new Stealth driving mode that allows silent driving with electric power only at a maximum speed of 72 km/h. s.


The heaviest Corvette ever


It is the heaviest class in the Corvette field due to the increase in the electric motor and battery, as it weighs 1712 kg compared to 1561 kg for the Z06 class, and 1530 kilograms for the base car category, knowing that Chevrolet has striven to use light components such as lightweight carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes.


The car comes with new designs for the rims, exclusive to the E-Ray class, with the use of different types of paint and exterior colors of the car, and an attractive sporty blue stripe along the entire length of the car, with the availability of optional carbon wheels.
