Hyundai Motor’s premium brand – Genesis, which is expanding to Europe, has shown its first dedicated electric car Genesis GV60. According to the manufacturer, this is the most sporty model in their portfolio.
Genesis GV60 is a group sibling of Hyundai electric cars Ioniq 5 a Kia EV6, which grew up on the new E-GMP platform designed specifically for electric cars, wrapped in a more premium coat. It is therefore compact electric crossoverwhich balances somewhere between the lower middle and middle class.
The specifications of the Genesis GV60 have not yet been officially published, but it can be expected that they will not (significantly) differ in the case of the propulsion system. The mentioned siblings are available in several versions with rear-axle and both axle drive and with batteries with a capacity of 58 and 77.4 kWh (range 400 to 510 km WLTP).
The various variants offer 125,160, 168, 173, 225, 239 and 430 kW and torque in the range from 350 to 740 Nm. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h can be in the range of 8.5 – 3.5 seconds.
The certainty is that the Genesis GV60 has grown on an 800V architecture that will allow high-performance charging. In the case of the Hyundai Ioniq 5, it is 232 kW. Group Hyundai Motor However, he recently announced their new electric cars will support charging up to 350 kW. And that could theoretically bring a new premium model from Genesis, taking an electric sedan Genesis G80 supports charging with such power.
