The New World record of 211.8 mph was recorded, witnessed and certified by the International Mile Racing Association (IMRA) driven by Johnny Bohmer during Straight Line Aerodynamic Testing at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds at the Kennedy Space Center, Merritt Island, Florida.
“During the December test, we broke our previous speed record that was set in September of this same year. That earlier record run was hampered by strong crosswinds, so we were confident that under better weather conditions we could improve upon that result,” said Andrew Saul, CEO of Genovation Cars, Inc.
“We are thrilled to be the only electric car manufacturer to not only test our vehicle’s record-breaking capabilities, but to validate and achieve this milestone not once, not twice, but three times. Based on the early analysis of the data generated from the new record, we’re confident that we can gain efficiencies which will result in further top end speeds.”
The GXE was designed from the ground up to have a low center of gravity and near 50/50 weight distribution; a true driver’s car. The GXE also comes equipped with a programmable active suspension, carbon ceramic Brembo® brakes, state-of-the-art carbon fiber wheels supplied by Carbon Revolution, ultra-high fidelity 10-speaker JBL stereo, a 10.4-inch custom high definition center console touchscreen and bespoke exterior and interior.
The all-electric supercar comes available with either a 7-speed manual – an all-electric supercar category exclusive – or an 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission.
In normal driving operation, the Genovation GXE delivers a range of more than 175 miles on a full battery charge, imperative to ultra-high performance and efficient daily-driver convenience.
The Genovation GXE will be produced in a limited-edition run of 75 units, with initial customer deliveries scheduled in 2020.
