The official owner’s manual for the 2020 C8 has just been released on the web and references a Lithium-Ion battery module, something found only if you have a hybrid car.
This information can be found on page 244 of the owner’s manual and also shows another interesting item, a power sounder module. This module is also known as a pedestrian-friendly alert function; soon to be a federal government mandate for all cars that operate on battery power under a certain speed. This system emits a sound to alert pedestrians of the vehicle since some hybrids make no noise and EVs are silent all the time. This feature could mean a hybrid variant of the new Corvette will include an electric-only driving mode, or just be part of the GM backbone architecture and future-proofing.
Obviously, we can’t say for certain what the Corvette team has up its sleeve, and Chevy isn’t commenting, but it’s looking more likely than ever we’ll have an electrified model in the future.

10,853 Original Miles!
What Mike likes about this Corvette:
“I have seen many Vettes over the 38 plus years, but this is one of the rarest 1967 L71’s I have ever had the pleasure to offer for sale. Pristinely preserved with only 10,853 miles, the original interior and hand-rubbed Rally Red lacquer paint. Spectacular attention has been given to this L71 including a detailed engine compartment and chassis. It is also sitting on original 1967 Black Wall tires.
