The look of Genesis

Korean luxury car maker Genesis has added two new battery electric models to its local line-up, with the launch of the Electrified G80 sedan and the battery electric GV60 SUV.

The luxury EV sedan sits above the previous range-topping 3.5T AWD Luxury Package, featuring a twin-motor AWD powertrain with outputs of 272kW/700Nm – enough to propel it from rest to 100km/h in 4.9 seconds. Costing $145,000 (MRLP) and boasting a claimed maximum range of more than 500km, it can charge to 80 percent in just 22 minutes. Meanwhile, the coupe-like GV60 is available in AWD ($103,700) and Performance AWD ($110,700) variants, with the former boasting outputs of 324kW/605Nm and the latter upping the ante to 360kW/700Nm. Both utilise a 77.4kWh battery for a claimed range of 470km and 466km (WLTP) respectively and feature futuristic digital cameras in lieu of side mirrors, plus a distinctive Crystal Sphere shift-bywire gear selector. The sleek exterior showcases flush-fit electric door handles, twin-lamp headlights and a clamshell bonnet; inside, a panoramic infotainment display, flat floor, floating console and slim seats create a generous sense of space.
