Korean premium brand, Genesis, is definitely on the march, introducing its first-ever GV60 all-electric vehicle – ahead of Japanese rival Lexus.
Based on the same E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform) found under the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6, the GV60 is of course, cloaked in a more luxurious and premium outfit compared to its more affordable relations.
At the front, the GV60 sports Genesis’ easily recognisable design language, thanks to its ‘Quad Lamps’ headlights and the marque’s Crest Grille, which has been toned down for the EV.
Along the sides, the twin-stack indicators have made way for a clam-shell bonnet, while the traditional wing mirrors have been eschewed and replaced with cameras. There are also door handles that pop out as the driver approaches the vehicle.
Around the back, we can see the trademark twin stack LED taillights, along with a ducktail rear spoiler and raked rear windscreen for a coupe-like look.
Inside, the standout feature in the GV60 is no doubt the Crystal Sphere. It forms part of the vehicle’s mood lighting when the vehicle is off, but rotates into a shift-by-wire shifter when it’s on.
The interior also features a large one-piece digital screen that combines the driver’s digital cluster with a prominent touchscreen infotainment system.
Genesis hasn’t announced any technical specification at this stage, although we suspect it would not deviate too far from that of the Ioniq 5 and EV6.
