GM to launch Corvette EV
Next year’s electrified Corvette will likely be a standard or plug-in hybrid. GM told Automotive News that it will not be a full EV.
“We’re not commenting on the specific type of application,” spokesman Kevin Kelly said.
Sam Fiorani, vice-president of global vehicle forecasting at AutoForecast Solutions, said the electrified Corvette will be a very high-performance model, with horsepower likely exceeding that of any other Corvette.
The body of the electrified version will be identical to the midengine, gasoline-powered Corvette that’s on the market today, Fiorani said.
AutoForecast Solutions expects the fully electric Corvette to launch in 2025. It will most likely have a body style different from the gas-powered and hybrid Corvette and could compete with the Ford Mustang Mach-E crossover, Fiorani said.
