2026 Chevrolet Corvette EV SUV.
Regarding the Corvette, a new 4-door AWD sport SUV has been planned for a while. Apparently, we could see the new model in 2024, at least as a concept. A final production version could go on sale in 2025. Just like the current C8 Corvette has been compared to much more expensive Italian sports cars, the new SUV could be considered a much cheaper Lamborghini Urus competitor. Although “much cheaper” won’t really mean affordable since it will probably reach $ 100,000 pretty quickly.
Before anyone screams “Blasphemy”, let’s not forget the Ferrari. Purosangue, The Rolls Royce Cullinan, the Urus, and the “old classics”: The Bentley Bentayga and Porsche Cayenne. All of these are considered blasphemous by many. A raised u p 4-door crossover body driving like a sports car is a bit ticket item with a huge profit margin. Sure the Porsche 911 is the classic Porsche. But last year, it sold 10,172 units. The Cayenne was about twice as popular the same year. The Chevrolet Corvette is a much more popular car in the US with over 37,000 of them sold last year. Doubling that number for the new SUV could bring total Corvette sales (Coupe/Convertible and SUV) to over 110,000 units a year. Something GM would have a very hard time to say no to.
But, as well all know, GM has to make sure their Ultium platform is ready for primetime. Which apparently, it might not be since they had to stop sales of the all-new Chevrolet Blazer EV. And have had many problems with the Cadillac Lyriq and GMC Hummer EV models.
When these problems are resolved, the reach car buyers will have yet another choice to spend over $100 000 in a super fast electric SUV they will never take off-road, or even drive that fast…
