Jay Leno is one of the biggest car collector’s on the Earth, and he’s been down to have a string relationship with General Motors. As a result, he has a certain amount of fondness for the Chevy Corvette. He owns several of them, and we’re covered them here at one time or another.
This time around, he took some time out of his day to take a closer look at the brand new 2024 Corvette E-Ray, the somewhat controversial hybrid Corvette, the first of its kind. The idea of a hybrid Corvette comes with little to no surprise to some if us who played close attention to the C8 Corvette since the beginning. Even in certain press releases, it was made public that there was “plenty of room to implement an electric battery in the front of the car, without effecting frunk space.”
It’s a technical blend of a 160hp battery in the front, and the awesome 495hp LT2 gasoline-fueled V8 in the rear/middle of the car, just like a standard C8 Corvette. There’s a lot of subtle aero changes and unique touches. To get a closer, technical look at what lies beneath the surface of an E-Ray Corvette, Jay has a long conversation with Corvette’s Executive Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter.
