Genesis GV60 is the first dedicated electric car from Genesis, which is a Hyundai luxury brand at the same time. Overall, the GV60 itself is the second electric car from Genesis after the Electrified G80.
The GV60 is also part of the Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) electric car family alongside the Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5.
Interestingly, even though its position is more premium, the specifications of the Genesis GV60 are no better at some points than the Kia EV6.
Starting from the driving motor, the Genesis GV60 has two choices of electric motor specs, namely standard and performance models.
The standard model comes with a Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) with a power of 168 kW or 228 hp or a dual motor All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with a power of 234 kW or 318 hp.
Compared to the EV6 or EV6 GT Line, of course the standard model Genesis GV60 is capable of spewing more power.
The Genesis GV60 performance model has a dual motor AWD setup with a maximum power of 360 kW or 489 hp and 700 Nm of torque in Boost mode.
Its sibling, the Kia EV6 GT, has the same setup but can churn out 430 kW or 577 hp and 740 Nm of torque.
The claim is that the Genesis GV60 can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4 seconds in Boost mode.
But unfortunately it still loses to the Kia EV6 GT's 0-100 km/h acceleration claim, which is completed in 3.5 seconds.
Regarding the battery, the Genesis GV60 is only available with a Lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 77.4 kWh. There is no 58 kWh version like in the Kia EV6.
This battery is claimed to be enough to cover a distance of up to 451 kilometers in one full charge on the standard RWD model.
The GV60 battery can be charged ultra-fast 400 volts or 800 volts and is claimed to be able to charge 10-80% in just 18 minutes.
