2023 Genesis GV60 EV SUV

2023 Genesis GV60 Electric SUV

Like the sound of owning a new electric Genesis SUV?  This is an AWD SUV with a decent electric driving range for the real world, making this a highly desirable new car.  Two variants of the Genesis GV60 SUV are available, and though they cost north of $100k, it’s not by all that much.

Top of the Genesis GV60 range sits the AWD Performance model.  This has some serious clout – packing 320 kW, a driving range of over 450 km, and can see off the 0-100 km/h dash in a rather brief 4.6 seconds.  Currently, there is one other model of GV60.  It costs a few dollars less, but doesn’t cut corners with any of the luxury, tech, or safety features.  It takes 5.5 seconds to run the 0-100 km/h.  The tweaking of the drive and power delivery also solidifies the decent driving range offered with this electric SUV (470 km).

But both versions come with On Demand 4WD.  This makes them a more than capable SUV for heading up the ski slopes in winter and tackling a few muddy fields on sports day.  One of the delights of owning an all-electric vehicle is that the drive is quiet and relaxed, with only a bit of road noise filtering through into the cabin at higher speeds.  The GV60 is a decent compact SUV to drive; composed and comfortable, and equipped with all the fan fare that makes this a breathtakingly satisfying electric SUV.

The new Genesis GV60 has a DC Fast charging set-up.  So, it takes around 18 minutes to get from 10% to 80% full on a 350 kW ultra-fast charging time.  If you plug it into the wall socket at home, then it should take around 8 hours to top the battery from low right up to full.  If you are using this a city commuter, then its perfect really.  Electric vehicles (EVs) are getting better by the day, and with the current focus on making battery technology better and better, the cars of today are vastly better than they were even 5 years ago.  The Genesis GV60 comes with a 5-year unlimited kilometre warranty and is also backed up with a 5-year roadside assistance package, should you need help at any stage.

There is actually very little between the two GV60 models.  As mentioned above, the only conceivable difference when in the driver’s seat is that one is slightly quicker through to 100 km/h from a standstill and is a bit more expensive to buy – but not by much.  Currently the Performance model costs around $120k, while the standard version is a little over $110k.  The reason for the extra oomph of the Performance model is down to the bigger power on offer.  The AWD Performance version gets 320 kW of electric energy, while the AWD version settles for 234 kW.  Both new GV60 variants are AWD-equipped and can tow an unbraked trailer of up to 750 kg and a braked trailer up to 1600 kg.  You get 432 litres of luggage space below the load cover, which is slightly less than you’ll find in a Kia EV6.  The Mercedes Benz EQB offers a generous 465-litre boot.  However, all versions of the BMW iX3 offer 510 litres.  Either version of the gorgeous new Genesis GV60 feels well-equipped and offers comfortable seating for up to five people.  Additionally, a tiny frunk (front trunk) also has space (20 litres) for a few bits and pieces.

A new Genesis GV60 is ANCAP-rated with the full five stars for safety.  This makes the GV60 a solid SUV to be in while out and about on the road.  8 airbags, front and rear load-limiting seatbelts with pre-tensioning capability, ABS, brake assist, electronic stability, traction control, an alert model for pedestrian awareness about town, blind spot monitoring with active assist, 360 degree camera visibility, collision mitigation systems, driver attention detection, active lane keeping assistance, park assistance with fully automated mode where the car parks itself, and there is even a first aid kit.  Other handy safety features include the EBD (electronic brake force distribution), the hill holder assistance feature, the rollover stability control, and the trailer sway control system.

Both GV60 variants come with an array of luxury high-tech features, so satellite GPS, LED DRLs, see me home lighting, rain sensing wipers, a powered tailgate, Aux Input USB Sockets, Bluetooth functions, a multi-function control touchscreen, a Digital Radio Receiver (DAB+), a 17-speaker premium audio system, active noise cancellation, a digital driver’s display, a head-up driver’s display, electric seats, heated front seats, a leather interior, adaptive cruise control, ambient interior lighting, keyless start, voice recognition, electric windows, and laminated glass are just some of the goodies you’ll enjoy.

With a new 2023 Genesis GV60, the car is fully alarmed and comes with an engine immobiliser.  To get inside, a memory fingerprint access system adds to the car’s security status and active personalisation.

How does the Genesis GV60 stack up against other similar EV offerings like the Kia EV6 GT Line, Tesla Model Y, Mercedes Benz EQB, or even the BMW iX3?  Very well indeed!  In fact, it may even feel a little more exotic.  It certainly looks smooth and classy and comes in an array of very vivid and sophisticated colour schemes.
