Genesis GV60 revealed as awesome electric SUV
On Wednesday, Genesis unveiled a new GV60 electric SUV, and I have to tell everyone, it’s pretty cool. Same as belowNOT. When Take the upper hand. But this sheet is completely unique to the book of Genesis, and we are here for it. When it goes on sale, we have to wait to drive it until next year.
Due to its common architecture, the GV60 should be roughly the same size as the Ioniq 5 and EV6 – despite its compact crossover, it looks small in the photo. Short front and rear overhangs provide more interior space, and the headlights and taillights have the same two-line design as the other new Genesis cars.
The GV60 marks the first application of a clamshell hood to Genesis products, with a much cleaner front end. Electric cars don’t necessarily need that large opening, but large grilles are typical of Genesis. Still, we like what is commonly seen here, especially the way the roofline gradually tilts and tapers towards the tailgate, with a little ducktail above the taillights to aid aerodynamics. . ..
The interior is arguably the coolest part of the GV60, and the blue upholstery pictured here is just too cool. The digital gauge cluster and infotainment display are housed in one long housing. The GV60 also has a side camera instead of a traditional rearview mirror that shows the feed on a small screen with the door touching the dashboard.
If you look at the center console, you’ll see what Genesis calls the Crystal Sphere (probably because it’s literally the Crystal Sphere). It’s actually an electronic gear selector, and Genesis says it “intuitively informs the driver when the vehicle is ready to drive.”
“When the vehicle is off, Crystal Sphere provides ambient lighting and improves the aesthetics of the driving experience,” Genesis said in a statement. “When you’re ready to drive, the ball spins and [gear selector] Present, create a futuristic and mobile interior atmosphere. “
Genesis has not currently confirmed the mechanical details of the GV60, but since it shares the platform with the Ioniq 5 and EV6, it has to be assumed that it will use the same electric powertrain. This means that a 77.4 kWh battery must be fitted between the axles and single or dual motor configurations are available. For the American version of the Ioniq 5, you’ll see 225 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque in a single-engine setting, and 320 hp and 446 lb-ft of torque in a two-engine configuration. The GV60 is also expected to benefit from an 800-volt electrical system. This means that you can connect it to a 350 kW fast charger. With Ioniq 5, this setting allows the battery to go from 10% to 80% charge in just 18 minutes.
The Genesis GV60 is set to launch in the United States next year.
