Electric vehicles: new speed record for the modified Corvette of Genovation
By delivering all their power instantly, electric vehicles are capable of lightning accelerations. But they are doing not bad in pure speed, as the modified Corvette Genovation, which exceeded its previous record of 205 mph (330 km/h).
While the Tesla vehicles are closer to the supercars records in terms of acceleration 0-60 mph from a standing start, others are pushing even further the possibilities on the pure speed.
The US Genovation engineer has improved the performance of its modified Corvette Z06, transformed into a 600-horsepower electric vehicle able to reach over 185 mph, making it the fastest registered electric vehicle.
After passing the 185 mph (300 km/h) and then 205 mph (330 km/h) in 2016, the Genovation GXE has gone even farther (or faster) reaching 209 mph (336 km/h) on the runway at Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
Genovation intends to market its car for a price that will reach 750 000 dollars, production limited to 75 units with custom finishes, with deliveries that will not occur until the end of 2019.
