2024 Corvette E-Ray Pricing Announced In The U.S.35
General Motors has just lifted the veil off the 2024 Corvette E-Ray hybrid, officially revealing the new C8 Corvette variant to the public. GM Authority has been closely following C8 E-Ray news, including leaked interior colorways and the foreign market availability. Now, 2024 Corvette E-Ray pricing has finally been announced alongside the official reveal.
The 2024 C8 E-Ray in the 1LZ Coupe configuration will have a starting MSRP of $104,295, which includes the $1,395 destination freight charge (DFC). Notably, the 2023 Corvette has the same DFC as the 2024 C8 E-Ray.
|Trim Level||Configuration||2024 MSRP + DFC|
At the other end, the 2024 E-Ray 3LZ Convertible boasts a starting pricing of $122,245 before options. Interestingly, 2024 E-Ray prices are strikingly close to 2023 Corvette Z06 prices. The C8 Z06 in 1LZ Coupe configuration starts at $106,695 with DFC, while the range-topping 3LZ Convertible Z06 comes in at $127,545.
For further comparison, the 2023 Corvette Stingray in 1LT Coupe form has a starting MSRP of $65,895, while the C8 Stingray in 3LT Convertible specification comes in at $84,845.
As a reminder, the 2024 Corvette E-Ray is the first Corvette to feature powertrain electrification and an all-wheel drivetrain. The naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 engine, which produces 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, is complemented by an electric motor on the front axle. This supplemental electric motor develops an extra 160 horsepower and 125 pound-feet, bringing total output to 655 horsepower. To put the power to ground, a new variant of the Corvette C8’s dual-clutch, eight speed automatic transmission (RPO code MLH) is now offered exclusively with the E-Ray.
Under the skin, the C8 E-Ray rides on the GM Y2 platform, which it shares with all C8 variants.
The hybrid Vette will go on sale in late 2023, and will be built alongside the Stingray and Z06 models at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky. Visually, the C8 E-Ray shares the C8 Z06’s wide-body treatment, along with body-colored accents and carbon flash badging as standard affair.

Z06 subject to luxury tax in Canada. ERay is exempt because of weight. Does that make sense.
I’ll pass on the E-Ray. I’ll keep my well equipped 2022 C8 Stingray (2LT). A similarly equipped E-Ray would be 40K more. No thanks.
Who the hell is going to spend $115,000 on this hybrid nonsense that’s going to have 3 recalls in the first 10 months?!?!?
GM should’ve focused on improving the Stingray and bringing it up to 525 HP..
Or how about actually building some Z06s for customers that are willing to pay $130,000??
Happy with my 2022 HTC Z51 what a car! Wife said get in line for E-Ray so I did. Checked with many dealers and mark ups were off the hook average price $100,000.00 over MSRP. Including the dealer I purchased my C 8 from.
Settled on Les Stanford Chevrolet. In writing deposit / MSRP. It is the principle as much as it is the price. Chevy should hold other dealers accountable. Goran was Internet person that helped me through the process/made it easy. Yes I know it will be a wait. But it will be worth it to me. Waited 18 months for the one I have now fun sharing with others doing the same.
The point is the market adjustment, its not worth it I could care less how nice the car is. Even MSRP is ridiculous I bought 2 GMC trucks exact same 2020 gmc denali HD and a 2022. The 2020 I paid 64k the 2022 I paid 93k the first had 4k in incentives and at invoice. These idiots will be sitting with tons of sheet metal and full lots again soon enough. Then these idiots thinking they have a corvette worth 150k will get a trade in value of 75k crying they were ripped off. It never fails, patience will pay off. I’m unloading my cars and making bank. Don’t be an idiot and buy when the market is up, if you do then I have ocean front property in Arizona I want to sell you too.
I’ve read a lot of these posts and it would appear that most people don’t understand that the E-Ray is a hybrid. It’s not 100% electric, and in fact, it still has that big old mid-engine V8 in it. Actually, it’s got a couple more horsies than my 2023 if I’m not mistaken.
That said, I’m glad I have the last 100% ICE V8 baby. And yeah, I let Chevy penetrate me, but then again, mine’s in my garage.
