CORVETTE GETS ELECTRIFIED!

Posted by Matthew Bryant on

What happens when an American Icon gets an electric makeover?...The GXE, that’s what!  The people at Genovation have created an electric sports car based off the C7 Corvette platform.  Some serious technology was put into creating this impressive car that runs on two permanent magnet motors.  

I know what you’re thinking...what do magnets have to do with muscle? Apparently, a lot, since the GXE has 800+ horsepower and 700+ lb-ft of torque.  It also goes 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds with a top speed exceeding 220mph!

Take 6 hours to fully recharge and then you can go for 175 miles (of normal driving) on a set of carbon fiber wheels.  I’m skeptical of electric cars, but this one has my full attention.
