Sure, the Tesla Model S Plaid Edition might be the fastest production street-legal electric car when it’s released late next year, but for now, the title belongs to the Genovation GXE. Based on the Chevrolet ZR1 Corvette, this all-electric vehicle boasts a twin-motor powertrain that generates 800-horsepower and 718 lb-ft of torque capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in under 3-seconds, while topping out at 220 mph. Recently, it was officially clocked at 210.2 mph during an aerodynamics test overlooked by the International Mile Racing Association.
Despite being an EV, buyers can select from either a dual-clutch 8-speed paddle-shift transmission or even a 7-speed manual, the latter of which cannot be found on any other production electric car. When fully charged, it has a 175-mile range that is more suited for weekend driving rather than a long cross-country road trip, that is unless…you have carefully mapped out all the electric charging stations along the way and don’t attempt a top speed run on any open stretches of highway.
