All-Electric 800 Horsepower Genovation GXE Supercar to Make LA Auto Show Debut 28 Nov '18
Genovation Cars Inc., will present the GXE at one of the world’s largest auto shows, November 28 through December 9, 2018. Genovation will feature two prototypes at the show: www.laautoshow.com.
The all-electric supercar, designed, developed and produced in the U.S., employs state-of-the-art batteries, inverters and electric twin-motors, producing more than 800 horsepower and more than 700 lb.-ft. of torque.
Genovation Cars currently holds the Guinness Book of World Records for a street legal electric car with a speed of 190.48 mph in the standing mile. Genovation also is the first street legal electric car to record a top speed of 209 mph and still retains that record.
The state-of-the-art wheels for the GXE have been supplied by Carbon Revolution, a privately-owned Australian company with a U.S. office in Las Vegas, NV.
“We’re excited to continue the momentum we’ve established with our participation at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show,” said Andrew Saul, CEO of Genovation Cars, Inc. “The GXE has received a very positive response wherever we’ve shown the car and we expect that momentum to continue with our debut in LA. As one of the premier shows in the world, we anticipate our GXE will impress the audience of car enthusiasts coming from a truly international audience.”
The GXE was designed from the ground up to have a low center of gravity and near 50/50 weight distribution; a true driver’s car. The GXE also comes equipped with an active programmable suspension, carbon ceramic Brembo® brakes, carbon fiber wheels, an ultra-high fidelity 10-speaker JBL stereo, a 10.4-inch custom high brightness touchscreen, over the air updates, active aerodynamics and bespoke interior. The all-electric supercar is available with either a 7-speed manual – an all-electric supercar category exclusive – or an 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission.
The world’s first street legal all-electric supercar is expected to exceed 220mph. In normal driving operation, the Genovation GXE delivers a range of more than 175 miles on a full battery charge, delivering on the design imperative of ultra-high performance and efficient daily-driver convenience.
“Presenting the GXE at the LA Auto Show places our product in front of audiences that appreciate both bespoke and high-tech performance automobiles,” said John Hill, Director of Sales and Marketing for Genovation Cars Inc. World-class components and custom exterior and interior options, as well as optimized chassis dynamics, are some of the features of our all-electric supercar. Discussions are now taking place with a number of prospects interested in purchasing their personalized GXE. We’re looking forward to presenting the car in Los Angeles.”
The Genovation GXE will be produced in a limited-edition run of 75 units, with initial customer deliveries scheduled in mid-2019.
