Here’s a first look at the upcoming Corvette C8 plugin hybrid.
The vehicle contains an orange charging harness protruding from beneath the front cargo cover. Other than those cables, the exterior does not seem to contain any other visible differences from the Corvette C8 with the Z51 package.
The C8 PHEV is expected to be analogous to the current Stingray model, but with hybridized power. It’s currently unclear what the powertrain (it sounded like a V6) will look like, though the electrified hardware is expected to aid in performance, rather than fuel economy. It will launch either in late 2020 or the 2021 calendar year.
