Chevrolet Corvette C7 is one of the best sports cars by the American manufacturer. The introduction of it in 2014 was a successful display of a 2-door convertible. Having this model as a base, the team has altered the Corvette into an electric hypercar with the name Genovation GXE.
Genovation GXE Hypercar Expectations
Genovation GXE hypercar is impressive with its top speed as an electric vehicle. The hypercar is going to be limited in production. There will only be 75 examples obtainable. The pricing for the car starts from $750,000. You can expect an electric car to be humble in digits, but when you want a top-level performance with a speed that exceeds 210mph, be ready to spend over 700,000 bucks. Pre-testing of the model for now has set the 211mph maximum speed. The engineering team is sure, as a final product, the vehicle will have a top movement of 220mph.
The hood hides behind it a powerful double motor that are combined in just one driveline. The cooling process is available via the help of a unique oil – managing the heat of the engines. The horsepower released for its work is 800. The cylindral batteries are similar to those existent in Tesla cars.
The speed will be of either 7 or 8-level. The 50/50 distribution of weight from its front to back will be a plus when it comes to the driving experience. The interior of Genovation GXE hypercar has, what you might think of, a high-tech support. The broad touchscreen with all of the controls inside the salon and the audio system of Harman make the car more attractive. Alcantara and high quality leather will be the special features of the corvette.
Genovation’s First Steps
First of all, the company that took the job of modifying Corvette C7 is not a big name in the vehicle production industry. Genovation’s headquarter is in Maryland, USA. Their main target of making electric cars has grown into something bigger.
They hope after the model’s release, a reasonable investment from outer sources will flow in. In the nearest future, Genovation will also deliver the essential equipment by order, that includes mostly electric amenities for better GXE functions – i.e. chargers, thermal settings, electric converters etc. If all goes well, the improved gadgets and items will also be useful in marine vehicles.
The development of the company started from 2008, when the crew was busy building cheap cars – all electric. They always take their inspiration from bigger names in the industry. That’s becoming obvious, when you read that their first gen electric car is a reformation of Ford Focus. Further in creation of models, the company made eco-particles for its cars. There were soybean resin, as well as plastic. Throughout the years, success hasn’t been there always for Genovation.
However, the company found eventually what it’s clever idea is- corvette modifications with speed improvements. As a result, the previous Genovation Zo6 C6 set a record back in 2017, when it reached a speed of 209mph. And nowadays, even though the production of C7 based GXE hypercar has slowed down, there are hopes that Genovation cars will be available for purchase in 2021.
