The new Corvette must be more controversial than the current model. After all, if the current generation, the C8, has already made some impact on fans with the use of a mid-rear engine, imagine what the purists will not say if the next model is electric, as the website reported. Muscle Cars & Trucks.
According to the page, the next generation sports car will be fully electric, without any version with a traditional V8. And while it’s a little sad to imagine a Corvette without an eight-cylinder roar under the hood, the rumor makes a lot of sense, as Chevrolet has said that it will only have electric cars from 2035. The motor is driven by electricity, or it ceases to exist.
Another surprising aspect of the rumors released by the American website is the fact that the sports car will produce a family of models. So, in addition to the traditional coupe body, there will be a Corvette sedan, to face the Porsche Taycan, and a Corvette SUV. Yes, a sports utility vehicle with a model name, like Ferrari Purosangue.
The idea is to create a car capable of taking on the Mustang Mach-E, as well as reach a new audience and bring more customers to the Corvette family. To develop the new models, Chevrolet would borrow a platform from the Cadillac Celestiq, an electric sedan from GM’s luxury division.
However, it will still be a few years before the electric Corvette and new family members appear. As the C8 generation is still relatively recent, it should be a few years before a generational switch occurs. Before that, the model should beat the hybrid version, still in this generation, and which is already hidden in the dimensions.
