Genesis has set up a good foundation for itself as a genuine luxury automaker by presenting models that don’t share a lot to downmarket Hyundai models, however the new GV60 electric vehicle is a departure from that. In view of these first official pictures, the GV60 appears to be firmly identified with the recently uncovered Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 and rides on a similar E-GMP underpinnings as those two electric models.
Like the Hyundai and the Kia, the Genesis GV60’s proportions are distinctly hatchback-esque. It features comparative headlight and taillight designs as other Genesis models, and its interior with particular blue upholstery—looks fairly more upscale than the Ioniq 5 and EV6’s cabins.
Genesis is yet to release any mechanical details for the GV60, however we can expect it should be almost indistinguishable from the Ioniq 5 and EV6. These models both offer various motor and battery configurations ranging from less incredible RWD single-motor versions as far as possible up to the 576-hp AWD dual-motor EV6. Because of its upscale positioning, the base GV60 will probably accompany an all the more impressive AWD dual-motor setup and a bigger battery.
The GV60 will be Genesis’ second electric model, following the Electrified G80, and the organization says it will go on sale in the U.S. sooner or later one year from now. We don’t have the foggiest idea the amount it will cost to begin, yet it will probably contend with vehicles, for example, the Tesla Model Y and Audi Q4 e-tron.
