The 2023 Genesis Electrified GV70 is the upcoming all-electric version of the conventionally powered GV70 luxury SUV. The Electrified GV70 will be a new nameplate for the Genesis lineup, and we expect it to launch as a 2023 model with sales starting sometime in late 2022.
Few details are available at this time, but we know based on spy shots the battery-electric version’s overall exterior styling won’t differ much from that of its combustion-engined counterpart. That’s a good thing because the GV70 looks fantastic inside and out.
The 2023 Genesis Electrified GV70 is significantly more powerful than both the Audi and BMW. While the EQC 400 offers a comparable 300kW and 760Nm from its dual-motor drivetrain, the Benz is half a second off the GV70’s 0-100 time.
EV MOTOR AND IMPLEMENTATION
All-wheel drive will be standard on the 2023 Genesis Electrified GV70, and it will use two motors, one on each axle, to achieve that. Maximum horsepower is a claimed 483 horsepower.
Genesis says the Electrified GV70 will be capable of hitting 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, which would make it the fastest version of the compact SUV.
We tested the regular 2022 GV70 with the optional twin-turbocharged V-6 and made it to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. When we get a chance to test the Electrified GV70, we’ll update this story with driving impressions and test results.
INTERIOR, CONVENIENCE, AND BOOTH
The 2023 Genesis Electrified GV70 shares its interior with its gasoline-powered counterpart, which means it will have a similarly impressive design and upscale ambiance.
Interior space is appropriate for the compact-SUV class, and we expect cargo space to be unchanged from the gas model, although Genesis has not released specifications or photos of the Electrified GV70’s trunk.
IN-VEHICLE INFOTAINMENT AND INTERCONNECTIONS
A large widescreen infotainment display stands proud on the dash and will run the latest version of Genesis’s software interface. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot will all likely be offered as standard; we also expect to see a Lexicon stereo system on the options sheet.
