  • Will Corvette go electric? Soon?

    The headline of this article is a little sensational because it’s a headline... of an article. That said, it casually speculates and implies rumors about the C8 design supporting electric requirements so I found it interesting.

    I guess you can take for granted that every modern sportscar that will stay on the market currently work on hybrid or electric versions, especially since a lot of regions are starting to get really crazy with their emission laws. So it seems like a no-brainer that C8 could offer alternative drivetrains in the future.

      A hybrid also makes sense since you can easily distribute the power and get 100% torque instantly on electric motors. Imagine adding electric motors to the front end of the corvette... 4 wheel traction and power to the ground would be most impressive in this vehicle.

        The writer does not appear to understand what a "mild hybrid" is. Just throwing terms around. Just another "journalist" looking for clicks.

        Based on this sentence
        Currently, the company is looking at mild and plug-in hybrid versions of the car meaning it could soon become all-wheel drive thanks to an electric front axle.
        It means nothing of the sort. Going to a mild hybrid which I fully expect in the next round of updates/upgrades, is nothing to do with having electric motors at the front. That's another step altogether. So is plug-in hybrid. Nor did Mark R make any of these statements about future C8's. He was talking broadly of the goals of GM in general.

        Mild hybrids (also known as power-assist hybrids, battery-assisted hybrid vehicles or BAHVs) are generally internal combustion engines equipped with an electric machine (one motor/generator in a parallel hybrid configuration) allowing the engine to be turned off whenever the car is coasting, braking, or stopped, yet restart quickly. Mild hybrids may employ regenerative braking and some level of power assist to the internal combustion engine (ICE), but mild hybrids do not have an exclusive electric-only mode of propulsion

          I'll pay for the petrol. Want to hear my V8. If I want to listen to an electric motor I'll watch Grandma on the Singer Sewing Machine. And, whoo needs the kind of horse power being discussed in the Hybrids
