The 2024 Corvette E-Ray is a first for the iconic sports car nameplate, and in more ways than one. Not only is it the first production Corvette with all-wheel drive, but it’s also the first production Corvette with a hybrid powerplant. Of course, all that means the E-Ray is equipped with several new components previously unseen in a vehicle with a Crossed Flags emblem on the body. With that in mind, the 2024 Corvette E-Ray’s battery pack is covered by a specific warranty.
As it turns out, the 2024 Corvette E-Ray’s 1.9 kWh battery pack and management system are covered by an eight-year / 100,000-mile warranty, whichever comes first from the original in-service date of the vehicle. The coverage should be similar to what was applied to the Chevy Volt and Chevy Malibu Hybrid, extending to the high-voltage wiring, battery and power control modules, generator power inverter module, brake modulator assembly and the hybrid drive unit. The warranty should be transferable at no cost to any subsequent person or persons who assume ownership within the eight-year / 100,000-mile term.
That all said, GM has applied certain ownership requirements to the 2024 Corvette E-Ray which stipulate the vehicle cannot be sold by the initial owner within six months of taking delivery in order to maintain the factory warranty. Stay tuned to GM Authority for more information on E-Ray ownership requirements.
For those readers who may be unaware, the 2024 Corvette E-Ray mates the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine (the same ICE cradled by the C8 Corvette Stingray) to a single front-mounted electric motor and the aforementioned 1.9 kWh battery pack. The hybrid propulsion system yields a combined output of 655 horsepower, with the LT2 driving the rear wheels (via a new variant of the C8’s dual-clutch eight-speed automatic gearbox), and the front-mounted motor driving the front wheels, yielding all-wheel grip. Stealth Mode allows the E-Ray to be temporarily driven on electric power alone at speeds up to 45 mph.
The GM Y2 platform provides the underpinnings, with production taking place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
