"On Monday, GM President Mark Reuss announced that, in addition to the new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and other gas-powered variants coming, "we will offer an electrified and a fully electric, Ultium-based Corvette in the future."

An "electrified" version means a form of electrification that is not a full EV, said GM spokesman Shad Balch. Balch declined to comment further on the specific type of application.

Reuss first said on CNBC and then wrote about it on his LinkedIn page. He said the electrified Corvette will come out "as early as next year" and said more details "and names" will come at a later date."

I don't know how I feel about that. Part of the appeal of high performance vehicles is the sound of the engine, but it's hard to argue with instant peak torque. And how heavy is it going to be?
