Genovation Cars Inc., revealed the GXE all-electric supercar at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Designed, developed and produced in the USA, the Genovation GXE employs state-of-the-art batteries, inverters and electric twin-motors, producing more than 800 horsepower and more than 700 lb.-ft. of torque. The GXE offers two transmission alternatives deploying power to the rear wheels.
Buyers may choose between a seven-speed manual transmission with a conventional clutch pedal – an all-electric supercar category exclusive – and a paddle-shift automatic gearbox. Either transmission enables the GXE to achieve 0-60 mph in less than three seconds and deliver a top speed in excess of 220 mph.
In normal driving operation, the Genovation GXE delivers a range of more than 175 miles on a full battery charge, delivering on the design imperative of ultra-high performance and efficient daily-driver convenience.
“Our objective is offering a sustainable all-electric high-performance supercar with record-shattering speed capability, paired with ample and efficient range, by harnessing and optimizing the very best of available technologies,” says Andrew Saul, CEO of Genovation Cars Inc.
Genovation GXE chassis dynamics are optimized by the combination of near 50/50 weight distribution and battery packaging for a low center of gravity. Brembo carbon ceramic brakes ensure stopping power commensurate with vehicle performance capabilities.
Each Genovation GXE features custom carbon-fiber wheels, sourced from Australia-based Carbon Revolution Wheels. Combining strength with innovative and distinctive design aesthetics, these unique wheels enhance overall vehicle dynamics and efficiency through significantly reduced unsprung weight and rotating mass.
The Genovation GXE pays homage to the Corvette heritage with familiar design cues combined with leading-edge LED lighting technologies. Tri-coat paint application can comprise up to 15 individual coatings of paint to ensure a deep, durable and sustainable finish. Each GXE will be painted a bespoke color to meet the customer’s wish for a unique vehicle.
The Genovation GXE features a luxurious bespoke Alcantara and leather interior, custom-tailored to each individual customer. The instrument panel center stack integrates a large easy to read LED high brightness touch screen and a custom ultra high-fidelity Harman audio system.
The Genovation GXE will be produced in a limited-edition run of 75 units, with initial customer deliveries scheduled within 2018.
