All-Electric Corvette Genovation GXE Headed To CES Rated At 800HP

We haven’t heard much from Genovation lately but the company has just announced plans to showcase the GXE at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on January 9th.

Previewed by an assortment of different prototypes, the production model is even more powerful than expected as the modified Corvette has an electric powertrain that produces 800 hp (596 kW) and 700 lb-ft (948 Nm) of torque. This will reportedly enable the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 220 mph (354 km/h).

Additional information will likely be released at the show but in 2016 the company announced the car would cost $750,000 and have a powertrain that produced 660 hp (492 kW) and 600 lb-ft (812 Nm) of torque. Production was said to be limited to 75 units and the model was expected to have a range of approximately 130 miles (209 km).

Earlier this year, it was announced that the performance figures had climbed to exceed 700 hp (522 kW) and 600 lb-ft (812 Nm) of torque while range had increased to 150 miles (241 km) during normal driving operation.

The car is slated to be launched in 2019 and it will be offered with either a seven-speed manual transmission or a paddle-shifting automatic gearbox.

    I do like the rear of this Vette more than the stock one Chevy put on it. I wouldn’t mind them going back to a cleaner look through out. The sides have so many angles going on.

    interesting

    It will be curious to see this come to market without all the gaudy aero bits that Chevy put on the recent ZR1. And 220MPH too.

      But muh downforce.

  • John Smith

    Under 3 secs? The coming ZR1 will probably do that. If this thing can’t beat a Tesla Model S, what’s the point?

  • What now? 750k? for re engined Corvette? This is even more outrageous than the Shelby Daytona based electric car (I forgot the name) just no please.

    The price is too steep IMO but I’m not arguing about the performance. That is if it actually does what they say it will. I’m sure I’ll have my answer though in the next few months.
