483-HP 2023 Genesis Electrified GV70 is an EV in disguise

  • Genesis has unveiled the electrified GV70 at Auto Guangzhou in China, and it will soon arrive in the United States.
  • All electrified GV70s have a twin-engine, all-wheel drive configuration with 483 horsepower.
  • It looks identical to the gasoline model except for the solid grille, charging port, and lack of tailpipes.

    Genesis is expanding its range of electric vehicles with another model almost identical to one of its gasoline offerings. Unlike the funky-looking electric GV60, the new Electrified GV70 compact luxury crossover will resemble the gasoline-powered GV70, joining the G80 luxury sedan’s twin, the Electrified G80, in the Korean luxury automaker’s electric lineup.

    The main difference between the gasoline and electric versions of Genesis’ compact luxury crossover is the Electrified model’s solid textured grille that hides a panel for the charging port. And, of course, there are no tailpipes sticking out at the rear. This example revealed for global markets is finished in an Atacama Copper matte paint with a Glacier White interior. Its interior is also identical to the gasoline model with a large wide screen that rises from the dashboard.

    All electrified GV70s come standard with a two-motor configuration offering all-wheel drive, but they can disconnect the electric motor from the driveshaft to switch between two and four-wheel drive, improving efficiency. Both engines produce 483 horsepower in a special Boost mode that will help it hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, according to Genesis. That claim is 0.4 seconds ahead of the 375 horsepower GV70 3.5T we tested. Genesis has not announced any battery details or range estimates, but does claim that while using a 350kW fast charge, it will have the ability to replenish the battery by 10-80% in under 20 minutes. .

    Look for more information on the Genesis Electrified GV70 in the coming months, as the automaker will release more specs on the version that will be sold in the United States. Expect it to be priced higher than the gasoline model’s starting price of $ 42,045.
