Chevrolet plans five new Corvette versions
General Motors will be adding five new cars to the C8 Corvette lineup until 2025, so let’s take a closer look at them.
The Z06 ‘Vette will hit the showrooms in 2022, followed by the ZR1 and a hybrid version a year after that, a pure EV in 2024, and the ultimate specification called Zora in 2025. The latter will combine a 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with dual electric motors for 1,000+ hp (750+ kW) total.
For its part, the ZR1 will make do with a V8 TT good for 850 hp (634 kW), and the Z06 will ship with the same engine model, but without the turbos. It should still be capable of around 620 hp (462 kW).
The plug-in hybrid car mentioned above will slot in between these two with 770 hp (574 kW) and AWD. It remains to be announced what IC engine it will come with.
The Corvette EV is the dark horse of the bunch with no information whatsoever available at this time.
