We were just talking about Genovation GXE a few weeks back when we learned that CEO Andrew Saul had purchased a 2017 Corvette Grand Sport that would be the next Corvette to receive Genovation’s electric conversion.
But that doesn’t mean they’re resting on their laurels why the C7 conversion is happening.
Last year, the Genovation GXE C6 Corvette Z06 set records for the standing mile by an electric car and the top land speed by an electric vehicle on the Space Shuttle runway at Kennedy Space Center. Genovations just returned to the Space Coast and broke both those records.
Genovations previous top speed record of 205.6 MPH was eclipsed by a new record run of 209.0 MPH. In the standing mile, the electric ‘Vette covered the distance at a speed of 190.4 MPH, breaking last year’s record of 186.6 MPH.
The Genovation C6 Corvette has a 44 kWh electric battery that powers dual electric motors which propels the Corvette with over 700 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. With regular driving, the car is capable of a 150 mile range.
Genovation has also stated their plans to build a fleet of electric C7 Corvettes, which is probably where that purchase of the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport comes in. You’ll need some deep pockets to acquire one though as their electric ‘vettes are expected to sell for $750,000 each.
After watching this video, we are definitely wanting to see what Genovation GXE has in store for the C7 Grand Sport!
