First Electric Corvette C7 Comes From Genovation And Costs $750,000

The team that created the fastest street-legal all-electric vehicle – clocked at 205.6 mph (331 km/h) – is now accepting pre-orders for their upcoming Corvette C7-based model.

The regular Corvette is a fast, loud, exotic machine, but so is Genovation’s GXE (minus the loud part). The small company took what they’ve learned with the previous model (which wasn’t road-legal), and stuffed it under the C7 Corvette Gran Sport’s skin.

The result is a familiar automobile, with unfamiliar characteristics, boasting in excess of 660-hp and 600 lb-ft (813 Nm) of torque thanks to a state-of-the-art battery management system, inverters, batteries, and electric motors.

The GXE has a range of only 130 miles (209 km) during normal driving operations (meaning a blast on the track will probably drain its juice much faster), but its near 50/50 weight distribution, and optimized center of gravity will make it sure the person behind the wheel will enjoy every minute with the car.

On the outside, the GXE differentiates itself from a standard Corvette thanks to the four round tail lights – which keep the Corvette’s tradition alive – and the revised front bumper.

Only 75 vehicles will be made, and each one will command a $750,000 premium. It might be steep, but, according to Genovation, every car will be manufactured after its customer’s desire, based on their individual design and finishing requests. Plus, it will be the only way you could get your hands on an electric ‘Vette.

Those interested will be required to submit a $250,000 deposit, but won’t receive the car earlier than 2019; after a 2-year design period, and 1 year built time.

    On an interesting note I now prefer the current taillights over the round ones.. They have grown on me.. This looks dated from the back.. Hells no I would not pay no where near that much for this car..
