Driving Paradise.— Corvega Slogan in Fallout 3 & Fallout: New Vegas billboards.

The Corvega was a line of car models manufactured by Chryslus Motors in pre-War USA.

OverviewEdit

There were at least four models in this line produced by Chryslus Motors before the Great War. The exact year when the first Corvega was available is still unknown, but it was already available for purchase in 2056.[1]

In the 2060s, soon after Canada was annexed, an original Corvega cost "only" $199,999.99. This further corroborates speculation of steady and reasonable inflation (4.55% average from 1960s Corvair) in the decades leading up to the Great War, since these vehicles are known to be commonly found throughout California, Nevada, Utah, Pittsburgh, the Columbia Commonwealth, and Massachusetts. Other products, such as Giddyup Buttercups and the Vault-Tec vaults, carried similarly hefty price tags.

LocationsEdit

NotesEdit

  • Several four-door Corvegas 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.
  • A four-door Corvega in pre-War condition can be found on the maintenance level of Mothership Zeta in the Fallout 3 add-on Mothership Zeta, yet unlike the other pristine ones the windows are not transparent.
  • A model sedan Corvega can be found on a desk in Allistair Tenpenny's penthouse in Tenpenny Tower. However, it is unobtainable.
  • If the player character purchases the pre-War theme for the Tenpenny Tower suite, there is also a model sedan Corvega next to a model house sitting on a side table.
  • All of the intact Corvegas only have door handles on the driver side, with the ones on the passenger side missing. This is likely a simple developer oversight as the wrecked version does have door handles on the remaining passenger door.
  • Although many times ruined automobiles such as the Corvega are found with suitcases in the back, this does not make sense because the back was used to mount a nuclear reactor and therefore the car's storage space was most likely in the front, under the hood.
  • The original Corvega's acceleration from 0-60 MPH in 0.5 seconds with 800 HP seems implausible, but it's 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.
  • However, 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.
  • This car is the largest and the lowest in the game series.
  • Before the bombs drop on Sanctuary Hills, there is a bright green one in a driveway. Then if you go there after the war, the driveway has no bump to go up it. This means that the car most likely bottomed out on it.
  • This car must have had a horrible turning radius due to its long wheelbase. The coupe also has this issue.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • 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 1950's, including the 1957 "Bel Air."
  • The name Corvega is a portmanteau of two notorious Chevrolet car models: the Corvette and the Vega.

  • Despite being produced by the Chryslus Corporation, a nod to the Chrysler Corporation, the Corvega is meant to be a Chevrolet car. The sedan model from Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 appears to resemble the General Motors Le Sabre, while the model from Fallout shares many design and styling features with both the first generation 1950's Chevrolet Corvette as well as the Corvette Mako Shark.
    • 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.
    • The coupe seen only in Fallout 4 strongly resembles the Desoto Adventurer II concept car.
