“I think it’s a very attractive idea, actually,” Reuss said. “I think it would be really fun to do, I think it would build capability inside our company and I think people would love it.”
A hybrid Corvette? And people would love it? Despite fears of many thinking that the Corvette should never see any form of electrically assisted propulsion, it might have to happen in order for a car such as the Corvette to exist. Even though it’s capable of 30 highway miles per gallon, increasingly stingy CAFE regulations will soon make that impressive figure unworthy. Heck, we’re already seeing more exotic sports car manufacturers showing off hybrids that are both outrageously powerful and expensive. Like the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918.
Here at the GM Authority camp, we’ll advocate a hybrid variant of the Corvette as a member of the vehicle’s lineup, and even an all-electric variant. Variety is the spice of life, after all.
