Striking E-GMP-based SUV delivers on luxury brand’s ‘distinctly Korean’ promise

16 Sep 2022

GENESIS has launched its first all-electric model based on its Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) in Australia this month, the GV60 Luxury Package AWD and Performance AWD duo available from $103,700 and $110,700 plus on-road costs respectively.


Being based upon E-GMP underpinnings, the GV60 shares much of its design and mechanicals with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 (from $75,900 in AWD form) and Kia EV6 (from $71,990 in AWD form) albeit with Genesis’ ‘distinctly Korean’ coupe-SUV visuals and in-cabin décor flourishes.


The Hyundai Groups’ E-GMP architecture supports both two- and all-wheel drive chassis configurations, but for the GV60 we find all-wheel-only delivery, a 77.4kWh battery, 470km driving range, and output of either 234kW/605Nm in the AWD variant, or 360kW/700Nm in Performance AWD trim.


The 0-100km/h dash can be dispensed in as little as four seconds.


What’s more, fast charging (up to 350kW DC) enables the GV60 to be buzzed from 10 to 80 per cent capacity in as little as 18 minutes, though most Aussie chargers will offer just 200kW DC, meaning a charging period of around 40 minutes is more likely.


The GV60’s striking, coupe-inspired body is smartly packaged around Genesis’ EV-specific framework and provides a spacious interior that brings some clever design elements – as well as a few familiar Hyundai-sourced screens and switches. It also features a uniquely Genesis crystal-ball-like gear selector that, although quite novel, is somewhat gimmicky when all is said and done.


On the plus side, the GV60’s flat floor, compact dash and floating-style console do provide a roomy lounge-like space from which to enjoy the ride. The cabin is exceptionally quiet and inviting and offers surprisingly generous cargo capacity that seems to defy the car’s coupe-like silhouette.


The lighter upholstery hues bring a sense of ‘premiumness’ that is well suited to the model’s persona, and like all Hyundai-based vehicles is paired to a user-friendly yet feature-packed array of technology we find pleasurable to use.


OK, the digital mirrors are a little quirky, but they are a lot clearer and better placed than some we have sampled… how necessary they are, though, is another point entirely.


All Genesis Electrified models are offered with a five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty with complimentary servicing and Genesis To You valet program. The high-voltage battery is warranted for eight years, while the navigation system is updated free of charge for 10 years.


Genesis also offers 10 years’ roadside assistance within the purchase price, and the option of either a five-year subscription to Chargefox or home AC charger installation.
