At Genovation, we are proud to pay tribute to American engineering by using the iconic Corvette as the platform for our GXE. The race-inspired hydroformed aluminum frame and quintessential body style lend themselves perfectly to the lightweight and sustainable GXE.
Genovation GXE Electric Supercar breaks top speed world record again at 209 MPH!
flat torque curve
The GXE all-electric power train was designed for maximum performance. The process began with an acknowledgement that no single motor could provide the torque, power and RPM we needed. Several twin motor approaches were analyzed with the best choice being two motors on a single shaft; a dual-stack. Next step was to find a pair of commercially available inverters that could power the dual-stack to maximum torque at an RPM the Corvette’s transmission components could handle. Finally, we designed a battery pack capable of providing voltage and current to meet the 250kW of power to each inverter simultaneously.
Control at your fingertips
We kept the existing manual transmission for several reasons. This car was designed to go on the track so it had to be stick shift or paddle shift. Paddle shifters need more complex shifting algorithms than were available to us, so a stick shift was the optimum choice. Eliminating a gearbox altogether was not an option as we need torque multiplication to meet acceleration goals. As a daily driver, it can be left in third gear all day, if desired.
