Could General Motors be working on an electrified version of the Corvette? There’s no confirmation yet, but a new trademark filing may be a clue that something may be in the works. New trademark filings for the names “Corvette E-Ray” and “E-Ray,” could prove that GM is planning a hybrid or fully electric version of the Corvette.

The trademark filing was only filed less than a week ago and unfortunately we don’t have any other details, but it does appear that the model could be based on the Corvette Stingray with it s “E-Ray” name. When could an electrified Corvette be introduced? Some reports claim that the next-generation Corvette could use an electric motor to power the front wheels. Right now the filing could mean anything, since automakers have been known to file trademarks for lots of names that they never use.
