Genesis is another automotive brand that has vowed to go all-electric, ending all new ICE models by 2025. To help kick off its new electric vehicle transition in 2022 is the GV60, Genesis’ first dedicated EV model, which will sit on Hyundai Motor Group’s E-GMP platform.
There are no confirmed pricing details either. However, looking at the pricing of the Kia EV6, which is set to cost in the region of $55,000 in the US (£40,895 in the UK and around AUD$75,000) it’s likely to be upwards of that given the premium appeal of the brand.
This crossover utility vehicle (CUV) will feature the luxury interior Genesis is know for, complete with a unique crystal sphere center control. The GV60 will come available in three powertrains, single motor 2WD, Standard AWD, and Performance AWD complete with a “boost mode,” which immediately increases the performance of the GV60’s maximum output to make driving more dynamic.
EPA ranges are not yet available on the GV60, but estimated ranges start at 280 miles followed by 249 and 229 miles for the AWD trims – all from a 77.4 kWh battery pack. We do know that the GV60 will come equipped with battery conditioning, a multi-input charging system, Vehicle-to-Load (V2L), and plug-and-charge payment technology.
Pricing for the GV60 has not yet been released by Genesis, but the company has stated the electric vehicle is scheduled to arrive in spring of 2022.
