Genovation Reveals 800-HP Electric Corvette


This is the future of the sports car.

At the CES show in Las Vegas, American company Genovation Cars revealed its new electric sportscar based on the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Grand Sport. The car, called the GXE, features two electric motors producing a combined output of 800 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque. The electric motors have been placed in front of the car replacing the gas engine and they drive the rear wheels via a seven-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic gearbox with paddle-shifters.

A drivetrain has been provided to make it feel like a regular Corvette. The GXE has five battery packs with a total storage of 61.6 kWh, which gives the car a maximum range of 175 miles. The car has a 0-60 mph time of less than three seconds and a top speed of more than 220 mph. The battery packs have been evenly distributed to ensure that the electric car has a 50/50 weight distribution and good balance, while stopping power comes from Brembo carbon ceramic brakes. The conversion has increased the weight of the car by 317.5 kg to 1859 kg. The car features reworked body and interiors and sees the adoption of round Corvette tail lights, which is not present on the C7.

The Genovation GXE has been priced at $750,000 and is limited to just 75 units. The price excludes the cost of the original Corvette. Deliveries will begin later this year. The last generation of the Generation GXE was based on the C6 Corvette. In 2016, it set the land speed record for the fastest electric street-legal car when it hit a top speed of 205.6 mph.
