Genovation Cars Inc., will present the GXE electric supercar at the LA Auto Show. Designed, developed and produced in the US, the GXE employs state-of-the-art batteries, inverters and electric twin motors, producing more than 800 horsepower and more than 700 lb-ft (949 N·m) of torque.
Genovation Cars currently holds the Guinness Book of World Records for a street-legal electric car with a speed of 190.48 mph in the standing mile. Genovation also is the first street legal electric car to record a top speed of 209 mph and still retains that record.
The GXE was designed to have a low center of gravity and near 50/50 weight distribution. The GXE comes equipped with an active programmable suspension, carbon ceramic Brembo brakes, carbon fiber wheels, an ultra-high fidelity 10-speaker JBL stereo, a 10.4-inch custom high brightness touch screen, over-the-air updates, active aerodynamics and bespoke interior. The all-electric supercar is available with either a 7-speed manual—an all-electric supercar category exclusive—or an 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission.
The supercar is expected to exceed 220 mph. In normal driving operation, the Genovation GXE delivers a range of more than 175 miles on a full battery charge. The Genovation GXE will be produced in a limited-edition run of 75 units, with initial customer deliveries scheduled in mid-2019.
