Future Chevy Corvette EV Will Use Battery’s Heat To Extend Its Range – General Motors

It’s official: a fully electric Chevy Corvette is coming with new battery technology to boost its range, acceleration and efficiency.

When it arrives, the battery-electric sports car will benefit from a new energy-recovery feature. GM announced on Monday for the Ultium battery platform underpinning its EVs. The upgraded system uses a patented heat pump. GM says will help electric vehicles charge and accelerate faster and boost range by up to 10%.

General Motors will release a hybridized version of its iconic Chevrolet Corvette sports car next year, with a battery-electric model to follow.

The CEO described the technology as a “a patented onboard system that takes the heat generated by EV batteries and uses it to warm the cabin, create more efficient charging conditions, and even increase vehicle acceleration.”

These benefits are only possible with a ground-up EV platform like Ultium and not easily done with a retrofit, according to Reuss.
