2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray In RHD Spotted Testing

The Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray, which has the steering wheel on the “wrong” side, is good news for people who live in areas where right-handed cars are the norm. However, this one is being tested close to the Milford Proving Grounds of General Motors.

The only difference between the E-Ray and the other hybrid development vehicles seen in earlier spy photos is where the steering wheel is located. It has wider rear fenders than the Z06, but the exhaust outlets are located in the corners as opposed to the centre.

From a leak in early December, we already know a lot about the E-design. Ray’s Early on, the configurator went online and displayed the inside and outside. Cacti, Riptide Blue Metallic, and Sea-Wolf Gray Tri-Coat were the three paint colours that were offered for it. There was a button inside that appeared to turn the regenerative braking system on and off. Other significant alterations to the cabin were minimal.

According to reports, the E-Ray is powered by the same 6.2-liter, naturally aspirated LT2 V8 that the standard Corvette uses to produce up to 495 horsepower (369 kilowatts). The front axle of this Corvette is allegedly driven by one or two motors, giving it all-wheel drive. A leak suggests that the total power output may be around 695 horsepower (484 kilowatts).

Details about the battery are still unknown. Since the E-Ray is not a plug-in hybrid, the size of the pack will be constrained. The system may still have enough power for a short distance of all-electric driving.

According to the Corvette lineup, the Grand Sport is replaced by the E-Ray. This means that while it wouldn’t be as track-focused as the Z06, it would still be more aggressive than the standard model.

The E-Ray will go on sale in the summer of 2023, according to the configurator leak. Chevy typically releases new models several months before actual deliveries start. This indicates that the debut might happen soon. The starting price is unknown, but it almost certainly exceeds that of a base model Corvette.
