The Corvette Z06 Goes Electric To Crush Chevy Camaro ZL1

By  | 

The Corvette Z06 has gone down the electric route and it has crushed the Chevy Camaro ZL1.

You usually wouldn’t put the Corvette Z06 and electric vehicle in the same sentence but this is exactly what Genovation, a small electric carmaker, has just done. They broke the stereotype as they wanted to break their own record for an electric street legal vehicle and they did it with the Z06.

Genovation has given the Corvette Z06 the name of GXE and they have completely overhauled the vehicle and given it electric components. The V8 7 litre engine offering 505 horses was taken away and this was replaced by two electric motors that get power from the 44kWh battery system. The powertrain means that the vehicle offers up 100 horses along with a range of 130 miles.

The Corvette Z06 was never designed to beat distance records but it was designed for breaking records. The GXE Corvette has the top speed records at 186.8mph but it seems that the company wasn’t happy with this so they reworked it to offer 205.6mph.

This means that the electric version of the Corvette Z06 is able to beat the Chevy Camaro ZL1.
