General Motors has announced plans for a hybrid Chevrolet Corvette sports car, followed by a fully electric model, as GM President Mark Reuss announced in a LinkedIn post. The hybrid Corvette is expected in 2023.
The fully electric Corvette will feature GM’s Ultium-powered batteries. In addition, it will likely feature Ultium Platform’s energy recovery system, a patented onboard system designed to take the heat generated by EV batteries to warm the cabin, create more efficient charging conditions, and increase vehicle acceleration.
Additional details, including the names of the new models, will be announced later.
Reuss stated that the new models would be in addition to the new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and other gas-powered variants.
