According to a recent report from the Detroit News, the American automaker won’t rule out the idea of a hybrid or even electric Corvette which may or may not come as a surprise to some. Many automakers are turning to electrification for more power, and using a hybrid powertrain to maximize performance while meeting strict emissions requirements might be a direction Chevy is forced to go.
Exotics such as the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder all use hybrid powertrain technology to enhance their performance. Considering that the Corvette Stingray is barely a year old, hybrid technology will be quite different by the time the eight-generation Corvette comes around.
