The Genovation GXE, a Corvette C7 driven by a purely electric cavalry


The Genovation GXE, a Corvette C7 driven by a purely electric cavalry of more than 800 hp, broke its own world speed record (electric vehicle category) on the tarmac at the Kennedy Space Center in Merritt Island, Florida.


For those who do not know it, the Innovation GXE unveiled at the CES in Las Vegas 2018, is an electric car developed around the platform of the Chevrolet Corvette C7, chassis inside which the American team of Genovation Cars placed two electric motors developing a total power of more than 800 hp and 950 Nm, powered by a 61.6 kWh battery offering a range of around 280 km.
Thus equipped, the Genovation GXE had already achieved the world speed record in its category with a peak recorded at 210.2 mph (337.96 km / h), performance now overshadowed by a new benchmark set at 211.8 mph (339.57 km / h ).
A performance which, Genovation Cars no doubt hopes, will help sell the 75 copies of the GXE promised for production next year. It is true that the electric sports car is not frankly "given", with a sale price set at $ 750,000, which does not include the cost of the Corvette C7 chassis.
