Electric vehicles usually have a number of words which are they are typically associated with: Environmentally-friendly, clean, and quiet. But fast is typically not one of them; at least, not until now. The Genovation GXE has recently broken the speed record for all-electric vehicles, topping out at 205 mph and breaking its previous record (of 186 mph).

One of the most common complaints for potential EV consumers is the lack of variety among current car models. Some types of cars, such as SUVs, pick-up trucks, and minivans, are still not available on the market. However, this news may interest a new section of users: people interested in sports cars. Perceptions of what is possible with electric vehicles may be changing.
