Under the hood, the Genovation Extreme Electric supercar carries two electric motors collectively producing 800 horsepower and 700-lb.-ft of torque. The electric motors are installed in a way to ensure 50:50 weight distribution. It includes a standard automatic transmission; however, a 7-speed manual is also available.
The GXR is equipped with a total of five battery packs which provide combined 61.6-kilowatt hours of capacity. The company claims the range is up to 175 miles, whereas the supercar can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds with a top speed of 220 mph.
