The latest Genovation Cars C7 GXE made quite a splash with its C7 Corvette basis and full electric powertrain. Excuse us, we mean propulsion method.
So, we thought we would ask you, our dear readers, if General Motors and the Corvette team should take the idea of a fully-electric Corvette seriously as the concept gains traction via an unrelated company.
The C7 GXE, pictured above, arrives with greater battery management from the record-setting C6 GXE, allowing for 660 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. At the same time, it features 50/50 weight distribution and zero fossil fuels are burned, making it a very capable EV.
On the GM front, we’ve discovered trademark filings for “Corvette E-Ray“, leading us to believe the idea of an electric Corvette, or at least one with supplemental battery power, is certainly being considered. We likely won’t see any sort of electric hybrid during the C7 generation of the sports car, but the C8 will bring uncharted territory with it; the C8 Corvette is widely believed to make the switch to a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive vehicle.
So, what do you think? Should an all-electric Corvette be in the cards? Talk to us and vote in our poll below.
