This Electric Car by Genovation is Capable of Matching the Speed of the World’s Best Sports Cars

By: | August 6th, 2015

This high-performance, all-electric sports car can easily outshine other electric vehicles.

Though there are no actual pictures to share, Maryland-based Genovation has announced that the prototype is nearing completion.

Their high-performance all-electric car called the GXE (Genovation Extreme Electric) is based on a 2006 Z06 Corvette.

Once the prototype vehicle is ready, it will be tested extensively for three weeks on a number of racetracks in an effort to set a new speed record for street-legal electric cars. The current record for an electric car is held by a Finnish prototype car at 177 mph (285 km/h).

Genovation is using state-of-the-art electric batteries and motors to produce over 700 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. Almost all the parts of the car are designed and built in America. The company expects the car to achieve 0-60 mph in three seconds with a top speed of over 200 mph.

If everything goes as planned, GXE will be on display in Michigan in September at the Electric Vehicle Technology Expo.
