A new electric car from Genesis has been spotted testing. It’s likely this new EV SUV will share parts with the recently revealed Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5 and may have more than 300 miles of range.

New Genesis EV design

It’s hard to make much out of the Genesis EV under the heavy camouflage, but it does appear to have a similar profile to the Kia EV6 SUV.

As such, expect a dramatically sloping coupe-like roofline at the back and a pretty swoopy overall design once the camo comes off.

This test car looks to have nabbed a set of alloy wheels from the Hyundai range too, but don’t expect them to make it to production – the finished Genesis EV will have its own bespoke wheel designs.

Expect the Genesis EV to use a more upmarket version of the minimalist interiors you get in the likes of the Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5 (shown above).

This will likely include a huge central screen plus a digital driver’s display, with an added level of luxury thanks to extended use of leather and other premium materials.

New Genesis EV batteries and range

The Genesis EV could borrow the batteries and motors from the Kia EV6. This would see range-topping versions equipped with a 77.4kWh battery back capable of delivering more than 300 miles of range.

Expect to see single- and dual-motor versions of the car too, plus support for 270kW fast charging.

New Genesis EV price and release date

The new Genesis EV will likely be revealed at some point in 2022 and is expected to go on sale in 2023.

Pricing could rise above £60,000 to mark it out as a more upmarket alternative to the likes of the Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq – both of which will set you back from around £40,000.
