Driving Paradise

— Corvega billboard slogan, Fallout 3 & Fallout: New Vegas

Corvega was a brand of American automobiles and a marque division of Chryslus Motors company prior to the Great War that produced several commercial-use cars.

Overview[edit | edit source]

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. Using a brand name dating back as early as 2056,[1] Chryslus relaunched the marque as a broad line of electric, fission, and fusion automobiles available in a variety of models. 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.[2]

Models[edit | edit source]

Analog Coupe[edit | edit source]

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.[3]

Atomic V-8[edit | edit source]

The Atomic V-8 Corvega

It's a Beauty

A rugged, dependable sedan that was one of the most popular models in the Corvega line, available across the United States.[4] 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.[5]

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.[6]

Notes[edit | edit source]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • The symbol on the hood of the four-door Corvega is similar to the chevron used on Chevrolet vehicles in the 1950s.
  • The name Corvega is a portmanteau of two notorious Chevrolet car models: the Corvair and the Vega.
