Genesis Electrified GV70 makes its European debut

Last year, Genesis introduced its third electric model after the GV60 and Electrified G80, the Electrified GV70 midsize SUV. Hyundai’s premium firm revealed this important novelty during the Guangzhou Motor Show (China); however, the European public has had to wait for the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​to see it for the first time in person.

The Genesis Electrified GV70 derives, as its name suggests, from the thermal GV70; that is, it is not a dedicated electric like the GV60. Despite this, everything seems to indicate that modules from the E-GMP platform have been used in its development since some of its specifications are identical to those of said model.

This is the case with its 77.4 kWh capacity batteries, the same ones that we can find not only in the Genesis GV60 but also in the Hyundai IONIQ 5 and KIA EV6. Thanks to this pack, the SUV announces an approximate autonomy of 400 km under the Korean homologation cycle (remember that a Hyundai Kona Electric announces 406 km in South Korea, while under the European WLTP cycle it achieves 484 km).

Also, the E-GMP seems to come to its 800-volt electrical system, which allows it to go from 10 to 80% charge in just 18 minutes. We, therefore, understand that the vehicle is capable of reaching a peak power of 239 kW in direct current. In addition, it has a Vehicle to Load function that will allow users to charge equipment and tools at 3.6 kW.

The Genesis Electrified GV70 has 489 horsepower

Its drivetrain is made up of two electric motors in dual configuration (one on the front axle and one on the rear, so it enjoys total traction), which announced a combined power of 489 CV (360 kW) and a pair of 700Nm. Thanks to this set, the Korean SUV announces 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.5 seconds.

At 4.72 meters long, the Genesis Electrified GV70 will have to contend with models from the premium D-SUV segment such as the Audi Q4 e-Tron, BMW iX3, Jaguar I-Pace, Mercedes-Benz EQB, and EQC and the Tesla Model Y. Its specifications and pricing for the European market will be revealed in late summer, with order books opening soon after.
