Genesis has just launched its first clean sheet electric vehicle, the 2023 GV60. An athletically designed luxury crossover it shares it E-GMP architecture with its corporate siblings Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6.

While mechanically identical to the others, the Genesis GV60 features its own uniquely design exterior and interior environments alone with an elevated level of luxury and performance features to bring it inline with its higher entry price of $58,890.

Design is sporty and avant garde with familiar Genesis design touches like two-lines head and tail lamps and a modern interpretation of the crest grille. Notable design elements modern and new include a clamshell hood that wraps over the fender line and its four-door coupe silhouette.

Other detail surprises include automatic flush door handles and its unique trim elements found at the rear three-quarter view. Measuring in with a 114” wheelbase and overall length of 177” it has a footprint slightly smaller than the Genesis GV70 gasoline powered SUV.

The cabin is a rich journey of futuristic and sustainable design featuring a mid-century modernity it its look and feel. Dual digital screens marry instrument cluster and infotainment across a continuous surface with a head-up-display available too.

A floating center console features a fascinating crystal sphere which serves as mood lighting when the vehicle is off. Upon power up it rotates around to become the drive-by-wire gear selector. The rich colors and textures are made of plant-based leather substitutes and plastics made of recycled materials.
Generous room to stretch your legs is provided by its flat 77.4 kWh battery pack located under its flat floor.

Power comes from standard AWD in North America with 310 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque provided by its dual-motor system. You can step up to a performance AWD variant with 429 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Range is 248 miles on standard AWD and 235 miles with performance AWD.

Driver selected drive modes allow for various levels of either enhanced performance or range extending programs. Extending range is enabled by the i-Pedal that lets you accelerate, decelerate, and stop using just the accelerator pedal. This means strong regenerative braking.

A Boost Mode allows for bursts of additional performance perameters for 10 seconds allowing a 0-60 spring in 4.0 seconds with the performance model. There’s also a Drift Mode which only mean some extra fun in how the GV60 behaves in the handling department. An electric-Active Sound Design system gives the GV60 a variety of virtual driving sounds to choose from as well. Cute.

A MacPherson multi-link suspension is found at the front and a five-multi-link suspension at the rear. An available adaptive suspension can read the road ahead via cameras to anticipate and adjust for surface variations – helping to keep a more stable ride at speed.
