It’s likely the storage area in the front of the mid-engine car will house the hybrid system, since space everywhere else is at a premium.
A video released Tuesday on the Corvette Facebook page with the tagline “One like none” shows the car running silently in “stealth mode.”
The E-Ray is expected to be a 2024 model, according to a leaked configurator that was quickly removed in December. The configurator showed the vehicle being available with a number of options and features, including adaptive cruise control and carbon fiber wheels, as well as new colors.
The Corvette will also have auto start-stop that can be disabled by pressing a button on the center console. Leaked images show a switch with a battery logo, possibly indicating the driver can switch off regenerative braking.
The E-Ray’s engine is likely to be the 6.2-litre V-8 in the current base model car.
