Genesis, the luxury brand of Hyundai Motor Group, has been making waves in the automotive industry with its ambitious electrification plans and stunning design language. The brand recently launched its third electric vehicle, the Genesis Electrified GV70, which is also the first Genesis model to be assembled in the United States in Montgomery, Alabama. This marks a significant milestone for the brand as it expands its presence and portfolio in the US market, aiming to compete with established luxury players like Tesla, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz.
The Genesis Electrified GV70 is based on the award-winning GV70 platform, which debuted last year as a gasoline-powered compact luxury SUV. The Genesis GV70 has received rave reviews for its striking exterior styling, spacious and luxurious interior, refined performance, and advanced technology features. The Electrified GV70 builds on these strengths by adding an all-electric powertrain that delivers 429 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, a 77.4 kWh battery pack that provides an EPA-estimated range of 236 miles, and a host of technologies designed exclusively for electric vehicles.
One of these technologies is the 400/800V multi-charging system, which allows the Genesis Electrified GV70 to recharge from 10 to 80 percent in as little as 18 minutes using a rapid charger. This means that drivers can enjoy more time on the road and less time at charging stations. Another technology is the vehicle-to-load (V2L) feature, which enables the Genesis Electrified GV70 to supply power to external devices or appliances using a 110-volt outlet. This can be useful for camping trips, tailgating parties, or emergencies.
The GenesisElectrified GV70 also boasts a high level of safety and convenience features that are standard across all Genesis models. These include a comprehensive suite of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) that help prevent or mitigate collisions, such as forward collision-avoidance assist, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, lane keeping assist, driver attention warning, highway driving assist II, smart cruise control with stop and go, and more.
The Genesis Electrified GV70 also comes with Genesis Connected Services, which offers remote access and control of various vehicle functions via smartphone app or voice command. Additionally, Genesis offers complimentary maintenance for three years or 36,000 miles, Genesis Service Valet for pickup and delivery service appointments, SiriusXM All Access for three years, multimedia and navigation updates for three years, 24/7 enhanced roadside assistance for five years or unlimited miles, and Genesis Concierge for personalized shopping services.
