2024 Corvette E-Ray Announced In Canada, Base Price Revealed15
When the 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray was revealed by GM on January 17th, the automaker’s Canadian subsidiary quickly followed up with its own announcement that the all-new hybrid-powered Vette would also be introduced in the northern country. The E-Ray’s base price for the Canadian market was revealed as well.
The 2024 Corvette E-Ray will be made available to Canadian customers in late 2023, or about the same time it’s scheduled to arrive at U.S. dealerships. The vehicles sold in both countries will be manufactured at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky, which also produces the C8 Corvette Stingray and the new-for-2023 C8 Corvette Z06.
The Corvette E-Ray 1LZ will be priced from CAD $128,798 in Canada, which includes the $2,295 destination freight charge, $100 for air conditioning tax, and $699 in dealership fees. Pricing for the other trim levels will be announced at a later date.
Meanwhile, GM already announced the full range of 2024 Corvette E-Ray prices for the U.S. market. The base E-Ray 1LZ Coupe starts at $104,295, which includes the $1,395 destination freight charge, while the range-topping E-Ray 3LZ Convertible starts at $122,245 in the USA.
The 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray will be offered in the same 1LZ, 2LZ and 3LZ trim levels in Canada as in the USA, in Coupe or Convertible body styles.
The Corvette E-Ray visualizer just went online, enabling potential buyers to explore the new Vette’s many options. These include 14 exterior paint colors, three roof options for the coupe (body colored, transparent, or visible carbon fiber), six wheel options, 10 interior colorway choices, and three interior trim packages.
The E-Ray features a hybrid drivetrain consisting of the mid-mounted 6.2L V8 LT2 engine powering the rear wheels, while a front-mounted electric motor drives the front wheels. This combination makes the E-Ray the first-ever Corvette with AWD, which GM refers to as “eAWD” because of the electrified element.
The Corvette E-Ray’s gasoline engine and electric motor generate a combined 655 horsepower, thanks to the LT2’s 495 horsepower and the electric motor’s 160-horsepower output. GM claims the 2024 Corvette E-Ray goes from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 96 km/h) in 2.5 seconds – 0.1 second quicker than the Corvette Z06 – and clears the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds.

Ridiculously high prepping costs! “$2,295 destination freight charge, $100 for air conditioning tax, and $699 in dealership fees” I hate Canada for its high cost compared to us..
actually it’s a fair price… $100k USD equals $130k CAD. CAD usually trades for 25-30% lower than USD.
dont hate Canada hate the braindead Prime Minister that destroyed the value of the Cdn dollar
Blame the voters that reelected him.
When they said “this combination makes the E-Ray the first-ever Corvette with AWD, which GM refers to as “eAWD” because of the electrified element”, it got me pretty excited. GM is planning on having full “electrification” for 2030-2035, while spending more money on engine manufacturing plants. If “electrification” means pairing an electric motor/generator and a small battery to a combustion engine, I am perfectly okay with that. I do not want a BEV, but I would happily own a hybrid. Sitting at charge stations for 30mins to 1hour each time? No thank you.
This is the kind of “electrification” that makes sense to me. Give me a RWD platform and use an electric motor for the front. The E-Ray would be a very cool car to have. But I really hope this tech and mentality also bleeds it’s way down to the Camaros and Cadillacs. I would buy a hybrid rear wheel biased AWD Camaro in a heartbeat.
These “incovenient truth” have taken over our lives. They will plug cows butts so they can’t fart. These people have too much time on their hands. They stick their noses in the wrong places.. what a figgin joke…..all a bunch of bull
The 2024 corvette is one awsome machine excited that gm is building this car this car is going to be stupid fast and pretty cool to drive my question is it just as fast as a Porsche 911 turbo S or faster either way gm is got my approval keep the horsepower coming gm with out going completely electric!!!!
I would get it at msrp.. price is higher than I thought. Dealer told me three to six year wait and fifty thousand over msrp.
yes, you are right!
$699 for dealership???????? Does that mean dealerships will not add on their own vig/10% after they receive their units?
$100 for AC. Where does that money go?
Gotta watch how this price climbs. “Oh, we forgot to add…..”
I didn’t see the luxury tax? Gas guzzler tax is now the recycling tax/fee. $3,500
CA car out the door price will be$160K with dealer markup of 10%.
Some of you need to get laid! So much anger and misery. Go to FACEBOOK and complain with someone you might know.
I thoroughly enjoy reading and sharing opinions on the topics that the GM Authority crew come up with every day. It seems that some folks get detoured off topic and get sucked into off topic trash talking and putting others down because of their opinions. I try my best to share my opinion without insulting or belittling others because of their opinions. We don’t have to agree and it’s fine to agree to disagree but there’s no reason for the insults and belittling of others just because they don’t agree with you. It would sure make it more enjoyable going through and reading everyones comments and opinions. I’ve learned a few things by reading other folks comments especially from some of the old schoolers. Alot of the comments bring back some good old memories of days passed. Just my 2 cents.
Very simple for me the Corvette has become ridiculously priced
The Corvette HAS become ridiculously priced… But it is also (ridiculously and meticulously) developed… the technology and the testing turns out an exclusive 2-seater sports vehicle of extraordinary quality, capability and comfort at (having said all that…) a realistic price for its target audience… The $50,000 Dealer surcharge is genuinely ridiculous but they are catering to the targeted customer who has the money to spare and wants the car NOW… and is willing to pay top dollar (an’ then $ome) to have it in their garage and driveway.
The Corvette has never been priced nor targeted for the average person… It’s always had a targeted audience of enthusiasts). I’m retired and certainly not “rich” … I’ve owned a few Corvettes — a ’66 and a ’73 ~ for a couple of examples — that date ‘way back to the early days of America’s Sports Car.
I believe it’s an individual choice as to whether or not it’s “worth the asking price”. The dealers DO take monetary advantage of the demand for the car an its heritage… and that $50,000 dealer surcharge is (not-so-subtle) gouging of the eventual customer. But the dealer is in it to make money… if they can get it and if it’s not illegal — why wouldn’t they try to get away with it?
I do NOT condone such tactics – but I do understand why they happen … in many ways — it’s simply a “supply and demand” situation. …’Just my two cents worth.
I think there is a big difference between making money from the supply and demand situations and gouging. The automotive industry isn’t the only ones dealing with shortages and availability issues. The individuals that are gouging and taking advantage of the shortage issues are part of the problem not part of the solution. If the dealers are paying more to get the vehicle it’s only common sense that they pass the additional cost on to the customer. In addition, they should make a FAIR profit for the extra effort that they provided in getting the vehicle delivered. Any dealer that is charging a ridiculous 50k flat rate surcharge certainly falls in the, (part of the problem) category. Somewhat sad in my book!
