while the Genovation GXE, a Corvette modified and fully electric, has already been seen in numerous images and even knew the data of their specifications, has not been up to the CES-Consumer Electronics Show – this year, when we have been able to see official form this beast power.
The GXE is not more than a Chevrolet Corvette C7 Grand Sport modified capable of reaching 350 km/h with a specific body for the model. The exterior design stands out by being more futuristic than the series model, with a gigantic spoiler, diffuser in the rear and splitters in the front.
If the americans are characterized by doing things in a big way, something that showed back in the 60’s and 70’s with the legendary muscle cars, the future it’s not going to be very different. The Genovation GXE mounts two electric motors that, although are located in the front as in the C7 Corvette, send the power exclusively to the rear wheels, and combined, are capable of producing a maximum power of 800 horsepower and 950 Nm of torque.
The GXE can mount two types of gearboxes, a manual seven-speed or automatic eight. Both transmissions are able to catapult from 0 to 100 km/h in less than three seconds.
autonomy, on the other hand, is not as surprising as their numbers in performance. According to the manufacturer, it is able to roll a total of 280 miles on a single charge. Equipped with five battery packs give a capacity of 61.6 kWh, and that in addition to providing useful life, maintain a low center of gravity and help to maintain a good distribution of weight.
Another of his negative points is the price. Only produce 75 units of the Genovation GXE with a price tag of $ 750,000 each, in addition to the cost of the Corvette to produce it.
