In recent reports, instead of one electric Corvette, there will be multiple different styles to choose from including an EV crossover, a four-door coupe option, and a liftback sedan. Additionally, a Corvette EV with GM’s Ultium architecture is scheduled to be released in the future.
GM’s Ultium platform allows enhanced shape, stance, and engineering flexibility. Engineers designed it for a range of model sizes, styles, shapes, and performance capabilities with up to 800-volt battery packs and 350 kilowatts of fast charging capabilities.
An insider working in the GM Tech Center told Car & Driver, “Corvette is not only a brand. It has a significantly different user experience and is constantly evolving.” These four-door vehicles and crossovers will continue to bear the Corvette name in the future, even though they aren’t producing new sports cars.
“The aim is not to beat Taycan and Cayenne at their own game but to create three American legends capable of breaking new ground by making the essence of Corvette scalable. To do so, that essence must at all times be in a state of progressive flux,” the insider added.
Like other EV companies, GM must recycle the extra heat from the batteries to heat the cabin in order to remain competitive. The patented onboarding system of the Ultium-based Corvettes has been designed to improve charging efficiency and even boost the vehicle’s acceleration with the announcement of the electric AWD Corvette’s introduction in 2023.
