The 2024 Corvette E-Ray Costs Nearly $40k More Than the Base Stingray

Posted on
  • The 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray Coupe has a starting price of $104,295; conversions add $7000 and start at $111,295.
  • The price-studded E-Ray is almost $40,000 more than the base Stingray coupe, which starts at $65,895.
  • The new E-Ray is a 655-hp all-wheel-drive hybrid slated for sale later this year.

The 655-hp all-wheel-drive hybrid 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray will require customers to cut a much bigger check compared to the base C8 Corvette Stingray. Not only does the E-Ray’s $104,295 starting price enter six-figure territory, but it’s nearly as expensive as the track-focused Z06 model, which opens at $109,295.

Opting for a convertible hybrid will cost even more, as the droptop E-Ray starts at $111,295 for the base trim 1LZ. That $7,000 price difference is the same thing that separates the Z06 coupe from the convertible, which has a base price of $116,295.

Both E-Ray variants are offered with several package options. The Performance Package, for example, includes Michelin Pilot Sport 4S summer tires (Michelin Pilot Sport all season is standard) and other upgrades. There’s also a stripe package and a carbon fiber appearance package that will increase profits even further. However, Chevy hasn’t released pricing details for the option yet.

To offset the price difference slightly, the Corvette E-Ray comes standard with features that were optional on the base Stingray. The list includes magnetorheological dampers ($1895 option on the 2023 Stingray) and carbon-ceramic brakes (only available on the Z06). The E-Ray’s 160-hp electric boost also counts, as the hybrid uses the same gas-fed 6.2-liter V-8 as the Stingray but adds a front-mounted electric motor to the mix—bringing the powertrain’s combined output to a high 655 horsepower.

Chevy hasn’t started taking orders for the 2024 Corvette E-Ray yet, but the company says it will go on sale later this year.
