The Hyundai luxury division Genesis presents the first purely battery-electric branded model at the E-GMP (Electric Global Modular Platform) of the Hyundai Group. After the G80 electric, the GV60 is already the second battery-electric model from the Hyundai luxury brand, which is still young in Europe. The latter, however, is a combustion engine that has been converted into an electric car with a battery drive.
The Genesis GV60, on the other hand, uses the same technology as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 (driving report) or the Kia EV6 with 800-volt on-board technology, up to 430 kW of power and, depending on the engine, either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The manufacturer has not yet announced which specifications from the E-GMP Genesis kit will be built into the GV60.
Since the coupé-like five-door model is to be positioned as the sportiest vehicle in the Genesis portfolio, all-wheel-drive maximum engines are particularly likely. The most powerful Kia EV6 accelerates to 100 km / h in 3.5 s and a maximum of 260 km / h. The Genesis GV60 should be available on the European market from the end of 2021.
