Genovation GXE 800hp electric supercar to make LA Auto Show debut
27 November 2018
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.
