The Corvette GXE could be the 200mph electric car we were waiting for
Genovation is promising something we’ve been wishing for, for a while. The Corvette GXE should be arriving soon. The pictures of the car are not made public yet, but there’s about what we could expect inside it. Genovation’s CEO, Andrew Saul said, “We are using state of the art inverters, batteries and electric motors that will produce in excess of 700-hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. We expect the car to achieve 0-60 mph in around three seconds and have a top speed of over 200 mph.” Now that’s saying something, especially with a range of 150 miles.
This counts to some exciting new chances of a street legal electric supercar isn’t far from becoming. The brains behind this one is owned by an MIT electrical engineer and mechanical engineer from Cosworth. Do watch out for the GXE’s introductory exposure to the public at the Electric Vehicle Technology Expo in Michigan, in September.
