The Top Speed Street Legal Electric Corvette
Genovation Cars has proved its electric Corvette is top dog! The Corvette was tested on February 23,2016 at the Shuttle Landing Facility in Florida when it broke the record for the top speed street legal electric car category, with a speed of 186.8 mph.
The GXE Corvette is based on a 2006 Z06 Corvette and includes electric motors that produce more than 700-hp and 600 lb-ft of torque.
“We are thrilled that the result of our development testing led to the setting of this record,” said Genovation CEO Andrew Saul. “Based on our experience so far, we believe the car to be extremely robust as we set the record on our first day of testing. We fully expect the car to do a lot more.”
Plugin Motorwerks looks forward to reporting more as testing continues!
