The Genesis Electrified GV70 SUV debuts in China this week



Genesis will unveil the electric version of its GV70 crossover later this week at the Guangzhou Auto Show, releasing a teaser image of the front end. The Electrified GV70, as it is likely to be called, will be the third fully electric Genesis model after Electrified G80 and GV60.

Changes in style are similar to what the G80 EV got. The Signature crest grill remains, but it consists of solid diamond shapes that hide the integrated charging port. The Electrified GV70 also gets a more subtle front bumper design with chiseled elements instead of the gas-powered GV70’s large air intake. We can also assume that the electric GV70 will have a different wheel design and a new rear bumper that drops the regular model’s large exhaust tips.

In terms of powertrains, the Electrified GV70 should have a similar setup as the Electrified G80. The sedan uses an 87.2 kWh battery pack paired with two electric motors that pump out a total of 365 horsepower, roughly what you get from the GV70’s twin-turbo V6, and a four-wheel drive with the option to disconnect the front. engine will be standard. The range should be about 250 miles on the EPA cycle. Like Genesis’ other electric cars, the Electrified GV70 will support 800 volt charging with the ability to get an 80% charge in about 20 minutes, and it will also be able to act as a generator.

According to recent reports from South Korea, the Electrified GV70 will be the first Hyundai Motor Group EV to be built in the United States from the brand’s factory in Montgomery, Alabama. Expect the starting price of the GV70 EV to split the difference between the four- and six-cylinder models, putting it at just under $ 50,000.
