Genesis GV60 electric crossover | HOW TO use the new technology functions in the car | Cars Blog


Starting price is about $ 55,000


Genesis, Hyundai's premium brand, has detailed the GV60 electric crossover, with a capacity of up to 320 kW (435 hp) and a range of 451 km.

Genesis will bring this electric high-performance SUV to the Northern Hemisphere market as early as 2021. GV60 4.52 m long, 1.89 m wide and 1.58 m high is in fact the Hyundai Ioniq sister model. 5 and Kia EV6 .


Compared to the Kia EV6 Genesis GV60, it looks almost the same in shape. Kia can also see a crossover layout with slightly longer ground clearance, as well as a short front hood and coupe style. However, the top and bottom lines of the window are different. The GV 60 has horizontally split LED headlights at the front. Koreans call them quad lights with a two-line design.

The hood and fenders are combined into a single unit. The recessed cabin rests on black pillars, hinting at a continuous strip of windows. The upper window border is formed by a circular chrome strip with a bold hook on the C-pillar. Instead of an outer mirror, Genesis uses a camera mirror. The door handle aligns with the door and only automatically emerges when in use. The taillights carry the two-line design of the main headlights. At the bottom of the rear window there is a large spoiler with integrated third brake light.

The interior of the GV60 looks spacious and comfortable in the first shots. The 2.90 meter wheelbase also speaks for itself. The most striking feature of the GV60's interior design is the Crystal Sphere, a spherical electronic transmission control unit in the seemingly floating center console that visually informs drivers of oncoming vehicles. Crystal balls can also create mood lights.

A combined display, which brings together the classic instrument panel and infotainment screen, spans two-thirds of the dashboard's width. Genesis uses the Nvidia drive platform for its touchscreen infotainment system. A smartphone's wireless connection for Apple-Car-Play and Android-Auto is established, which also requires a digital key, handwriting and voice recognition, as well as a touch controller. The screen reproduces the camera image from the exterior mirror placed on the door ledge. When it comes to sustainability, Genesis also uses a lot of recycled materials in the interior. PET bottles and old fishing nets are recycled for a variety of surfaces.

The GV60 is the first Genesis model to feature "Face Connect" facial recognition. The system allows for facial recognition using a near infrared (NIR) camera and opening or closing the car doors. The system must also operate in the dark or other poor lighting conditions. Once the driver's face is recognized, "Face Connect" synchronizes the individual driver profile with the driver's seat, steering wheel position, side mirrors, front display or infotainment settings. For outdoor activities like swimming or running, the driver can leave the car keys in the car and simply lock and unlock the Genesis with facial recognition. Two faces can be registered with profiles for each model.

The second biometric feature is the "Fingerprint authentication system" on the GV60. It allows starting and controlling the car with fingerprints. You can also use it for car payments.

Genesis offers 11 different paint colors that can be combined with 5 interior color themes. Safety equipment includes eight airbags, including one between the front seats. There is also an entire support system.


With the Genesis GV60, the brand intends to compete with the Tesla Model Y, Audi Q4 E-Tron and Mercedes EQC.


Genesis GV60 Fast charging and 450 km . range

The Genesis GV60 adopts the same E-GMP modular platform as VW's modular power system, MEB, allowing for different battery capacities, starting from 64 kWh. On the GV60, the platform comes with rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and a 4x4 performance version. With all-wheel drive variants, the engine can also be switched off. The battery has a total capacity of 77.4 kWh. So far, only specifications for the Korean market are known.


In the RWD model, a 168 kW, 350 Nm electric motor provides propulsion. The range should be 451 km. In the all-wheel drive version, a 74 kW electric motor pulls in the front and a 160 kW motor at the rear. Together, they reach 234 kW and 605 Nm of torque, with a range of 400 km. If the efficiency check mark is set, the 160 kW electric motor is driven on both axes. Total power increases to 320 kW, but peak torque remains at 605 Nm, however, the range drops to 368 km.


The performance variant also has an acceleration button on the steering wheel that boosts power to 360 kW and 700 Nm in 10 seconds. At best, the GV60 accelerates to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds. Drift mode optimizes traction and brake action to ensure an enjoyable cross-driving experience at the touch of a button. An electronic limited-slip differential optimizes grip if necessary.

The new Genesis GV60 is a compact crossover related to the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6, with all three vehicles using Hyundai Motor Group's E-GMP dedicated EV platform. However, after seeing it first-hand at a studio in Orange County, California, and learning some more about the features, it's clear the luxury small SUV can stand on its own.


Genesis says the GV60 marks the brand's next step towards electrification and we should see it in dealerships in 2022, though it will launch in Korea first this year. Next is an electric version of the G80 mid-size sedan. The electric G80 will also go on sale in the US, though its due date won't be confirmed until later this year.


Genesis is also working on electric versions of the GV70 compact crossover and GV80 mid-size crossover, with the electric GV70 expected to begin production in December.


We'll learn more US details about the GV60 in the coming months, such as EPA effectiveness numbers and pricing. We expect it to start somewhere around $55,000.
