The Genesis GV60 electric crossover will be all-wheel-drive and deliver up to 483 hp
Genesis’s new GV60 electric crossover will debut in the showroom in phases, beginning at select dealerships in California, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York in two weeks.
The phased approach ensures Genesis meets consumer demand, and availability will expand to more states throughout 2022, a brand spokesperson said.
The GV60 will be available in two all-wheel-drive variants: Advanced and Performance. The GV60 Advanced will be able to travel 248 miles on a single charge; the GV60 Performance has a slightly lower range of 235 miles.
Genesis has been tight-lipped about US specs, but according to a document obtained by Automotive News, the Advanced variant will have a 74 kilowatt electric motor in the front and a 160 kW electric motor in the rear, both powered by a 77.4 kilowatt-hour battery. It will be able to deliver 314 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque. It will also have 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels.
The Performance version will offer a 160 kW electric motor front and rear, also powered by a 77.4 kWh battery. It will deliver 429 hp and 446 lb-ft of torque, according to the spec sheet. A “boost mode” button on the steering wheel will increase performance to 483 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. It will have 21-inch aluminum alloy wheels.
Both variants will have a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds when equipped with a hitch.
Genesis also didn’t specify a price, but analysts say the GV60 will start around $55,000.
