The Genesis Electrified GV70 is built on the same platform as the gas-powered version. As a result, it boasts a spacious interior and features various technologies found in electric vehicles. The Genesis Electrified GV70 will accompany the Electrified G80 luxury sedan unveiled recently. However, it looks different as compared to the more futuristic and modern Genesis GV60.
The front solid grille of the Genesis Electrified GV70 is designed for aerodynamic efficiency and functionality. Genesis’ signature Crest Grille is designed into an aerodynamic crest featuring an inverted G-Matrix pattern that hides an EV charging port. The Genesis Electrified GV70 model featured an Atacama Copper matte paint and Glacier White interior at the event.
The interior of the Electrified GV70 is very similar to the conventional GV70 model with a large multimedia display in the center and above the dashboard. Genesis claims to have used a variety of sustainable materials while building the interior and each material features a high-quality finish.
The Genesis Electrified GV70 is powered by two electric motors and each motor is connected to the front axle and rear axle respectively, which gives us an AWD drivetrain as standard. However, it can be driven in 2WD mode also by disconnecting the electric motor from the driveshaft, conserving energy, and improving efficiency.
Genesis claims that two electric motors produce a combined output of 483 horsepower. With the Boost mode switched on, the Electrified GV70 will do a 0-60 MPH sprint in 4.5 seconds flat, which is impressive, to say the least. However, no details regarding the battery pack capacity or maximum range have been revealed.
Genesis equipped the Electrified GV70 with Smart Regenerative Braking System 2.0 for enhanced energy conservation. The Active Noise Control-Road feature will help to create a comfortable cabin environment by eliminating road noises. Genesis claims that the Electrified GV70 will charge from 10% to 80% within 20 minutes when connected to a 350 KW fast-charging power outlet. The specifications of the U.S model will be available soon and it will be priced higher than the gas-powered GV70 model.
