New Genesis GV70 electric motors and batteries

The new electric Genesis GV70 will be available with all-wheel-drive only, meaning it has dual motors. It has 480hp and 700nm of torque, which pushes it from 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds.

Genesis claims the new electric GV70 will do over 300 miles on a charge. It also supports 350kw charging, so will charge from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes.

This new electric SUV will support vehicle-to-load charging, just like the Hyundai Ioniq 5. This means you can run some household appliances, such as a kettle, by plugging them into the car.

New Genesis GV70 electric design and interior

The new electric version of the Genesis GV70 shares the same design as the petrol and diesel models.

This means it gets the same split headlights and distinctive grille design. Around the back, it has the same sloping roof line and LED rear lights.

Inside, it’s also familiar to anyone who’s spent time in the standard GV70, the only difference being the use of a new three-spoke steering wheel.

New Genesis GV70 electric price and release date

The new electric Genesis GV70 has only been revealed for the Chinese market so far, so it’s not confirmed when it will be coming to the UK. You may see an official reveal in early 2022.

Pricing also hasn’t been confirmed yet, however you can expect it to be more than the standard car’s £39,450 figure. Somewhere closer to £35,000 is a safe bet.
