This car project named GXE have a series of battery management systems, inverters, batteries and an electric motor which called by Genovation produces a combination of power 700 hp and 813 Nm of torque. 
In addition to speed, GXE also claimed to have a mileage of up to 209 km under normal driving conditions. Asnd as a sports car, GXE also developed to produce nearly 50/50 weight distribution and the low gravity point optimization. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GENOVATION CARS | TECHTIMES]
