The saga of the Genovation GXE electric Corvette has finally come full circle as the company revealed the stunning finished product at the Consumer Electronics Show last week. The blue Grand Sport wowed crowds all week during its Las Vegas debut.
Based in Maryland, Genovation cars states that the GXE will produce 800hp and 700lb-ft of torque. Top speed should come right around 220mph. 0-60mph will happen in less than 3 seconds. Not too shabby for a car thatll weigh in at 4,100lbs.
Its also interesting to note that the car still comes with a 7-speed manual transmission. Travel range is expected to be 175 miles per charge. Were pretty sure that range 100% dependent on the angle of your right foot, though. They do note that not all of their testing is complete yet.
Genovations first production car will be produced at Prefix Corp. in Rochester Hills, Michigan. Itll take 2-3 months to add in the 5 battery packs and electric motor.
So how much will a new Genovation GXE cost you? Better call your banker as youll be writing a check for $750,000. Were not quite sure yet how that converts over into Bitcoin. As of now they currently plan to build just 75 examples with production targeted for the fourth quarter of 2018. With a volume that low its pretty likely that theyll sell out fairly quickly.
