GM just unveiled the 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray, introducing the very first all-wheel-drive, hybrid-electric sports car to wear the iconic Chevy Corvette nameplate. Naturally, the new C8 Corvette E-Ray is generating a good amount of hype and excitement, and now, fans can use the official online visualizer tool to configure the sports car as they see fit.
As some readers will no doubt remember, photos of the 2024 Corvette E-Ray visualizer leaked last month, giving us an early sneak peek at what the hybrid Vette would look like. Now, the visualizer is online and accessible to all, and includes a wealth of exterior and interior options to pick through.
Among these are 14 exterior paint options, three coupe roof options (body colored, transparent, or visible carbon fiber), six wheel options (both aluminum and carbon fiber), 10 interior colorway options, and three interior trim packages. Notably, the 2024 Corvette E-Ray will be offered in both a coupe and convertible body style, and although the visualizer includes a convertible placeholder button, only the coupe body style is currently available for customization.
U.S. pricing for the 2024 Corvette E-Ray starts at $104,295, which gets you a base-model 1LZ Coupe. The mid-range 2LZ starts at $109,795, while the range-topping 3LZ starts at $115,245. All three trims are also offered in the Convertible body style, which adds $7,000 to the price of an equivalent Coupe model. Note that all prices listed here include a destination freight charge (DFC) of $1,395.
As for the powertrain, the 2024 Corvette E-Ray mates the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine with a single front-mounted electric motor. The gasoline engine produces 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, while the electric motor produces 160 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque, with a combined peak output of 655 horsepower. Under the body panels, the Corvette E-Ray rides on the GM Y2 platform, while production will take place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
