In an announcement via social media channels, Chevrolet has revealed that it is working on electrified and all-electric Corvette vehicles. The hybrid car could be released as early as next year, with no timeline given for the BEV. The fully electric vehicle will feature GM's Ultium battery platform with range-extending energy-recovery technology.

Chevrolet has announced that it will release an electrified Corvette as soon as 2023, with a fully electric version also in the works. The company posted a teaser video on its social media channels showcasing a camouflaged vehicle driving in the snow.

Chevrolet has not given a timeline for the all-electric car, and no further details about the launch of the hybrid are known. Fans speculate that the car driven in the teaser video is a hybrid all-wheel-drive model with a v8 gasoline engine, though Chevrolet has not confirmed this.

Other rumors about the vehicle suggest it will offer 1000 hp from a combined twin-turbo engine and electric motor. GM has also announced that the electric version of the Corvette will include a new energy-recovery feature for its Ultium battery platform to extend the vehicle's range.

It is unclear how the car will be named, though one website notes that GM has applied for a trademark on the name E-Ray. It is anticipated that the vehicle will first be released in the US, with a European release later.

Earlier this year, GM confirmed that it would exclusively sell electric vehicles by 2035, so it is unsurprising that electrified Corvettes are being developed. Chevrolet stated that more details about the cars, including names, would be revealed in the coming months.
