“The Genovation Team is excited to partner with the College for Creative Studies through this collaboration,” said Andrew Saul, CEO of Genovation Cars, Inc. “We have high hopes that the students will deliver outstanding design concepts that will exceed our expectations.”

"The College for Creative Studies Transportation Design Department is deeply grateful for the summer competition offered by Genovation. As designers, we are so often told that creativity thrives on restriction. The GXE brief gives students the chance to meet this axiom head on, create an exciting portfolio piece, and come away with a deeper understanding of the professional design process." Paul Snyder, Paul & Helen Farago Chair of Transportation Design.

The GXE was designed from the ground up to have a low center of gravity and near 50/50 weight distribution: a true driver’s car. The GXE also comes equipped with a programmable active suspension, carbon ceramic Brembo® brakes, state-of-the-art carbon fiber wheels supplied by Carbon Revolution, ultra-high fidelity 10-speaker JBL stereo, a 10.4-inch custom high definition center console touchscreen and bespoke exterior and interior. The all-electric supercar comes available with either a 7-speed manual – an all-electric supercar category exclusive – or an 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission.

In normal driving operation, the Genovation GXE delivers a range of more than 175 miles on a full battery charge, imperative to ultra-high performance and efficient daily-driver convenience.

The Genovation GXE will be produced in a limited-edition run of 75 units, with initial customer deliveries scheduled in 2021.
