Corvega was the flagship brand of Chryslus Motors and one of the dominant forces on the automotive market after the resource crisis rendered combustion engines largely extinct. The price of an old model Corvega in 2077 was $199,999.99 - despite that, they remained extremely popular. However, despite their popularity, standards of manufacture seem to have deteriorated, with coupes manufactured in 2077 having a tendency to leak coolant.
A classic two-door sports coupe with an oversized, front-mounted engine, the original Corvega Coupe featured an 800 horsepower fusion power plant capable of going from zero to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in 0.5 seconds. Driving it was a challenge, however, as it was completely analog with no onboard electronics.
A rugged, dependable sedan that was one of the most popular models in the Corvega line, available across the United States. The Atomic V-8 was sold with two or four doors, a flat-top and a bubble-top, and available in a variety of colors. The interior was commonly lined with red leather, especially in the second-generation models that entered the market before the Great War.
An economical and family friendly coupe, the Blitz was a variant of the Corvega line designed to combine good performance with low maintenance requirements, excellent fuel efficiency, and four seats.
Several four-door Corvegas Sedans can be found in the Tranquility Lane simulation in Fallout 3. Like the rest of the simulation, they appear as they did pre-War, without rust, and with a complete paint job.
All of the intact Corvegas only have door handles on the driver side, with the ones on the passenger side missing.
Many times ruined automobiles such as the Corvega are found with suitcases in the back, despite the area being used to mount a nuclear reactor.
The original Corvega's acceleration from 0-60 MPH in 0.5 seconds with 800 HP is implausible, but not impossible. To accelerate from 0-60 MPH in that time, either the car (with driver) would need to weigh under 1800 lbs, or a 2500+ lb car would need 1500-2000 HP. In addition, accelerating from 0-60 in 0.5 seconds would produce around 5.5 g's, which could lead to blackouts if sustained for more than a few seconds.
The sedan model is the largest and sits the lowest in the game series.
Before the bombs drop on Sanctuary Hills, there is a bright green sedan in a driveway.
Some of these cars including other cars found around the wasteland are still intact. In Fallout 4, some cars still have an intact reactor and can be destroyed. This is distinguished by their little damaged paint job, all doors in the car. When the car is damaged a certain amount a small explosion can be heard and fire in the car, this shows as a warning that the car is about to explode. At low levels, the Sole Survivor can be instantly killed by the explosion.
The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
The symbol on the hood of the four-door Corvega is the same as the one that can be found on several Chevrolet vehicles from the 1950s, including the 1957 "Bel-Air."
The name Corvega is a portmanteau of two notorious Chevrolet car models: the Corvette and the Vega.The Corvette half of the name comes from the fact that the first model of Corvega seen in "Fallout" strongly resembles the first generation Corvette and the Corvette Mako Shark concept car.
Fallout 4's rendition of the sedan is inspired by design cues from 1950's Lincoln and Edsel sedan models from the front fascia and resembles the Buick XP-300 from the sides and rear fascia.
↑Curie: "I read that the Corvega Blitz is quite economical and family friendly. But, not so much any more." (Curie's dialogue) Note: This line is spoken at the entrance of the assembly line room in the Corvega assembly plant.
