An Electric Genesis GV70 Available Soon ?

The second electric SUV from Genesis is under developement

Genesis is on a roll right now. Its latest products are gaining more and more attention in the automotive world, not only for their innovative design, but also for the quality of their execution.

Already, Genesis has three sedans and two crossovers, but another utility vehicle is on the way, this one with electric drive. The GV60 will be the first purely electric vehicle from the young Korean division, but the electrified offering won’t stop there. We already know that a pure electric G80 sedan will be added, while an electric livery of the GV70 is also in development.

Genesis has just released the first image of this electric version of the crossover, which has just arrived on our roads as a gasoline-powered vehicle. The GV70 is available with either a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine or a twin-turbocharged V6.

Unsurprisingly, this image of the front fascia shows the famous split headlights with the LED signature now associated with Genesis vehicles, but also this “fake grille” with a discreet letter “G” (in the right corner) that indicates where the charging cable will have to be plugged in to give the GV70 a few hundred kilometers of range.

At the time of writing, there’s no indication that this electric GV70 will be marketed in North America, but with the popularity of this niche and the need for more electric models, the electron-powered GV70 could very well be part of the North American plans. What’s more, Genesis’ – and the Hyundai group’s – desire to produce electric vehicles in the U.S. should in principle ensure that this other electric crossover comes to us.

It’s also too early to speculate on the powertrain, but the G80 electric sedan calls for a pair of motors that make 365 horsepower and an optimal 516 lb-ft of torque. The electric GV70 could very well use the same powertrain.

We’ll find out soon enough, as the official unveiling of the electrified GV70 is scheduled for the Guangzhou Motor Show in China later this week.
