GM patented name E-Ray, is this Corvette Electric version?

From the time computers were still the size of a three-level building until the time of the smartphone now, and certainly the most famous Corvette was used the V8 engine. So famous, many modifiers that choose the Corvette engine to replace an automobile engine. From the first Corvette was never present in other than gasoline-powered version, but it seems it will soon change.

From a screenshot of the patent submission form uploaded by Chris Doane Automotive shows that General Motors has patented the name Corvette E-Ray. Name fairly predictable guessed, this definitely Corvette assisted electric motor systems in terms of driving force. But whether this is a full electric or hybrid, no one knows for sure.

There is no detailed explanation about E-Ray drivertrain, its form was just no one knows for sure. It's nothing, because the Corvette itself had reportedly is building a central-engined car, which means that its form would be different from the current generation Corvette Stingray. Before the E-Ray alone, the Corvette has been patented two other names.

The other names in question is Zora and Manta Ray, but the news about these two names disappear like dust in the wind. If I may guess, the most potent of course the Corvette with hybrid engine, because they only learn the Chevrolet Volt hybrid system and set it up to suit the character of Corvette. Besides that, in early last month, the company also has patented modular hybrid powertrain and rear drive unit.

But considering GM is planning a collaboration with Honda, we got to thinking, what a hybrid system would resemble the NSX? Or even GM studying Tesla's electrical system? No one knows for sure. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTONETMAGZ.NET]
