Genovation today announced that it has begun accepting pre-orders for the next generation Genovation Extreme Electric (GXE) car. The GXE currently holds the world record for the fastest street legal all-electric vehicle, which stands at 205.6mph.
“We are very proud of what we have accomplished with the GXE thus far, pushing the limits for electric-powered cars beyond what most people thought was possible. We are excited to enter the next phase and begin offering this extraordinary vehicle to discerning customers,” said Andrew Saul, CEO of Genovation. “This is a truly unique vehicle on a number of fronts, and we are thrilled to be bringing it to market.”
The GXE is a C7 Grand Sport Corvette that is re-engineered by Genovation to be a performance driven all-electric vehicle. The GXE includes a state-of-the-art battery management system, inverters, batteries and electric motors that produce in excess of 660-hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. The car has a range of 130 miles during normal driving operation with a near 50/50 weight distribution and is optimized for a low center of gravity. The GXE will have a unique and stylish exterior made from innovative green composites and custom interior accouterments. The GXE is truly a performance vehicle that is meant to excite drivers with its speed, responsiveness and efficiency.
The GXE will be produced in a limited quantity of 75 vehicles. Individuals that wish to pre-order the GXE can secure their place in line by signing up on Genovation’s web site. They will also be required to submit a deposit of $250,000. The final price for the GXE will be $750,000. Each GXE will be bespoke and unique, based upon the individual customer’s desires. Customers that choose to purchase the GXE can guarantee that their GXE will be one-of-a-kind as it will be based on their individual design and finishing requests.
Genovation anticipates that the first vehicles will be delivered in Q4 of 2019 after a 2-year design period and 1 year build time.
