2020 C8 Mid-Engine Key?

2020 C8 Mid-Engine Key?

December 7, 2018 0 By Laura

It is a small thing, but if this FCC application, recently unearthed by CarScoops, is really the new key fob design for the mid-engined C8 Corvette, it shows some interesting details. The first being that the C8 will come as a coupe and convertible, and second, there is no manual transmission option, as you cannot have a remote start on a manual transmission car.

The fob is similar too a Cadillac-branded key that leaked a month ago, and has buttons to operate the vehicle’s locks, trunk (front and rear), convertible top, panic alarm, and remote start. Another page in the FCC filing refers to the device as “GM MY2020 B1 KEYFOB,” confirming that General Motors is aiming for a C8 launch within the 2020 model year. The back side of the fob shows a new redesigned “crossed flags” Corvette logo.

The filing also contains a diagram that confirms the fob will come in two different frequencies so that it will be compliant with wireless device standards in other counties. This would allow sales in European and Asian markets.

If GM is going to make the C8 available as a 2020 production car, they will need to formally reveal it soon; perhaps at the Detroit Auto Show next month, or at the New York show in April. Despite multiple sightings of the C8 on the road and race track, we still don’t know a whole lot about the actual car apart from its general body shape. Rumors abound has to engine and interior layout, but there is still nothing reliable on this front. There is also no news on pricing.
