In March, early this year, Hyundai officially launched a completely new electric car model called Ioniq 5. This is the first Hyundai model designed and built into a convenient car from the ground up. instead of being born as an electric version of an existing product.
Up to now, it is the turn of the luxury car brand Genesis of Hyundai Group to launch a similar electric car, called GV60. Like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6, the Genesis GV60 2022 is developed on the basis of a platform dedicated to electric vehicles Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). However, compared to the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6, the Genesis GV60 is considered a more advanced option.
According to Genesis, the letter “G” in the name GV60 stands for the brand name. Meanwhile, the letter “V” represents the versatility of this electric car. In addition, Genesis models are named with the lower number, the sportier. In other words, Genesis wants to refer to the GV6 as its sportiest SUV model today.
Externally, GV60 2022 also applies the same design language as the Genesis models currently on the market. On the front of the car, GV60 2022 is also equipped with “Quad Lamps” headlights with 4 horizontal LED strips typical of the Genesis brand. Add to that is the Crest Grille shield-shaped grille – another identifying feature of the Genesis car. However, compared to other Genesis models, the grille of the GV60 2022 is smaller and has a slightly adjusted design. In addition, Genesis GV60 2022 also comes with a clamshell bonnet, creating a seamless front end.
Looking to the side, it’s hard not to recognize the digital camera instead of the traditional rearview mirror of this luxury electric SUV. Next is the electric door handle, which will pop out of the body when passengers approach Genesis GV60 2022, and alloy wheels with an eye-catching design. Meanwhile, the roof of the car slopes gradually to the rear and goes with a chrome brace extending from the top of the A-pillar to the rear spoiler.
Behind, Genesis GV60 2022 comes with LED taillights with 4 horizontal light strips, creating a similarity to the front of the car. The fixed spoiler located just below the rear glass, integrated with brake lights also appears on the Korean electric SUV.
Similar to the exterior, the interior of the Genesis GV60 2022 also has some unique details, especially the Crystal Sphere crystal ball on the center console. When the car is off, this ball will act as part of the Ambient Lighting system in the interior. When the car turns on, the globe will rotate and the gearshift button will appear.
The remaining highlights of the Genesis GV60 2022 include a large screen on the dashboard, a combination of a digital dashboard and an infotainment screen. Besides, there are 2 screens located in 2 corners, near column A, to display images obtained by external digital cameras.
Unfortunately, Genesis has not announced the specifications of the GV60 2022. Therefore, we do not know what type of electric motor and battery this electric SUV uses.
