It’s no secret that Chrevolet wants to maximize the performance of the Corvette saga. The quintessential American sports car has been conquering millions of drivers for many generations. More than a car, it is an institution from which the brand now wants to get more out of it. According to various reports, Chevrolet is planning to increase the Corvette family with two new bodies, a sedan and an SUV. that will use electrical mechanics that will take the sports car to another level.
To speak of the Corvette is to speak of one of the most famous American cars in history. His name radiates sportsmanship on all four sides. Each new generation has been more extreme and spectacular, from the elegant and rounded C1 to the aggressive and sharp C7. It’s no secret that Chevrolet is working on a hybrid driveIn fact, we have seen it circulate on more than one occasion in its testing stage, but the rumors now point in a new direction, or at least that is what the reports to which Muscle Cars & Trucks has had access indicate.
They state that yes there will be an electric Corvette, but not in the eighth generation (the current one) but in the next, in the ninth. The current model still has a few years left to live, and the Americans would take the opportunity to start a new generation with the radical change in format. This revelation contradicts what has been taken for granted in recent months. Logic indicates that Chevrolet will not get rid of the thermal engines since it would leave the market free for its rivals.
In another order of details, the Corvette family is going to grow. General Motors executives see the sports car as an excellent way to expand the family with other commercial products. Reports reveal the arrival of two additional bodies from the year 2025, both using the platform that the Chevrolet Blazer EV has just released. A structure designed for electrical mechanics capable of adapting to multiple bodies and uses.
The first of the proposed units is a four-door sedan that would replicate the design of the Corvette, but would add more interior space. It would be a rival model of the Porsche Taycan, at least in concept and format. A family electric sports car that would replicate the Germans and the good sales figures they are reaping. As we say, it would not see the light before 2025, so development should start in the middle of next year.
Last but not least, General Motors is considering the possibility of including an SUV body in the family. It is not the first time we have heard something like this, but this time it seems that Chevrolet has already made the decision. Using the same platform, the Corvette SUV will show high-performance 100% electric mechanics that will allow you to stand up to rivals in the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT category. A mirror to look at. As Ford already did with the Mustang, Chevrolet wants to replicate it with the Corvette, give wings to a family that has many ways to exploit itself.
