Electric Chevy Corvette Could Be Called E-Ray

General Motors has refiled for the E-Ray trademark

  • GM first filed the E-Ray trademark in 2015

  • The company has refiled for the trademark

  • Presidential nominee Joe Biden hinted at an electric Corvette coming


The buzz around a potential electric Chevrolet Corvette has picked up. There’s no official confirmation from GM, but there’s a lot of talk about an electrified version coming sometime down the down.

According to GM Inside News, General Motors has filed once more for the name E-Ray with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Now, this isn’t really indicative that an electric Chevy Corvette is around the corner given that GM first filed for the name back in 2015 and GM had to either filed for the trademark again or let it expire. They could just be holding on to the E-Ray name without a clear plan to use it.

That said, a few days ago former vice president and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden strongly hinted that he had information on an upcoming electric Corvette.

“And by the way, they tell me… they’re making an electric Corvette that can go 200 mph (320 km/h). You think I’m kidding, I’m not kidding. So I’m excited about it.”

Did GM tell Biden this was a project that was actually ongoing, or was it more of a “one day” kind of discussion.

A commenter on the Biden-Corvette EV story added this:

“For once, Sleepy Joe told the truth!  I’m an engineer at the Warren Tech Center working on a different GM electric vehicle program but a few of my colleagues are indeed involved in the E-Corvette development.”

We reached out to try and find out more, but haven’t had a response yet. Until then and without further proof or confirmation, there’s nothing here that can be seen as concrete evidence.

But, as we know, electric vehicles are here to stay and performance electric vehicles are getting more and more marketable. Logically, it’s only a matter of time until the Chevy Corvette goes electric.
