The 2024 Corvette E-Ray got its big debut this past January, dropping cover as the first-ever hybrid-powered, all-wheel-driven production vehicle to wear the iconic sports car nameplate. Indeed, the E-Ray doesn’t skimp on technology features, and even includes a unique performance app that provides insight into the various onboard systems. Now, GM is highlighting some of the app’s features in a brief new Corvette Academy video.
The video is just a bit over one and a half minutes long, and includes both an overview of the app, as well as a few comments from the Corvette E-Ray team. Per comments made by Corvette Calibration Engineer, Battery Systems, Carolyn Sweeney, the E-Ray performance app is a new information display application accessible via the center stack module that provides a wealth of information for the driver.
The app includes three display layouts – Gauges, Dyno, and Engine Power. The Gauges display includes a dynamic power readout for both the electric motor and the internal combustion engine, showing in real-time the current output levels of both. The Dyno screen displays power and torque levels over time via a graph. Finally, the Data screen provides electrical system performance metrics and efficiency, such as electrical charge gained, electric boost used, and fuel saved.
“E-Ray is the most technologically advanced Corvette we’ve ever developed,” says Corvette Energy Integration Engineer, Stefan Frick. “The Performance app really is going to give you that confidence and very connected, intuitive, tied-in feel with what the driver’s asking for.”

As a reminder, the 2024 Corvette E-Ray cradles the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine (the same powerplant motivating the C8 Corvette Stingray) just behind the cabin, while up front, there’s a single electric motor juiced by a 1.9 kWh battery. The V8 powers the rear wheels, while the electric motor drives the front wheels, providing a combined 655 horsepower.
Under the skin, the C8 Corvette rides on the GM Y2 platform. Production takes place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
