The Genesis GV60 is now on sale in the UK. This alternative to the likes of Audi Q4 e-tron Sportback, BMW iX3, and Volkswagen ID.5 costs from £47,005.

New Genesis GV60 prices and specs

The new Genesis GV60 is available in three trims: Premium, Sport and Sport Plus. All versions come with a 77.4kWh battery but different choices of electric motor.

The cheapest model – the Premium – costs from £47,005. This means no Genesis GV60 is eligible for the Government’s plug-in car grant. Only cars that cost less than £32,000 currently qualify.

Genesis GV60 Premium – from £47,005

The GV60 Premium comes with a single 228hp electric motor that drives the rear wheels. Combined with the 77.4kWh battery, this gives you up to 321 miles of range. That’s about the same range as you get from a £47,530 Audi Q4 e-tron with a 204hp electric motor.

Genesis GV60 Sport – from £53,605

Sport versions of the GV60 come with dual motors producing a total of 318hp. These cars come with four-wheel drive, but you’ll have to make do with up to 292 miles of range.

That’s almost 30 miles less range than the entry-level Premium car with a single motor, and about the same distance behind a £47,957 Kia EV6 with the 321hp dual-motor option.

Genesis GV60 Sport Plus – from £65,405

Top-spec GV60 Sport Plus models get a more powerful dual-motor setup that produces a whopping 489hp in total. These lose out on a few miles of range compared with Sport versions, delivering up to 289 miles on a single charge.

They cost almost as much as a Tesla Model Y Performance, but can’t match that car’s 319-mile range.

New Genesis GV60 electric car design

The new Genesis GV60 gets a classy, uncluttered design with stacked headlights, upturned black bumper trims and a broad black grille.

The GV60 comes with rear-facing cameras instead of conventional door mirrors – like the ones you get on an Audi e-tron. Flush-fitting door handles are another slick touch, as are the eye-catching alloy wheels, but if that doesn’t stand out enough then you could always go for a bright yellow paint job like the car in these photos.

New Genesis GV60 electric car interior

The new Genesis GV60’s interior looks just as modern and slick as its exterior. The two-spoke steering wheel is a neat touch, as is the brushed metal-effect centre console and dashboard trim and (likely optional) bright yellow seat stitching.

Two wide digital screens take care of driver info and entertainment duties, but there are still physical buttons placed around the cabin to access commonly used functions.

New Genesis GV60 electric car batteries and motors

The new Genesis GV60 comes with a 77.4kWh battery. Rear-wheel-drive versions with a single 228hp electric motor have the longest range of up to 321 miles.

Go for a dual-motor model with 318hp and you’ll have enjoy up to 292 miles of range. This Sport Plus model has to make do with up to 289 miles, but it does come with dual motors producing 489hp…

This version also comes with a boost mode. Engage this, and the GV60 will accelerate from 0-60mph in just four seconds flat. Not exciting enough for you? Well, there’s also a drift mode, although Genesis hasn’t gone into detail to explain exactly what this allows you to do in your GV60…

New Genesis GV60 charging

The Genesis GV60 comes with an 800-volt electrical system that lets you charge it using rapid 350kw chargers from 10% to 80% full in just 18 minutes.
