The 2023 Genesis Electrified G80 will Start at $79,825 in the US

Genesis announced the starting price of the Electrified G80 in the United States.

  • The Electrified G80 is the second electric model from Genesis

  • The official range hasn’t been disclosed but it should be close to 282 miles (454 kilometres)

  • Genesis will sell electric vehicles in four more US states

Genesis announced the American pricing information for the 2023 Electrified G80 sedan, its second electric model.

Unlike the GV60, the Electrified G80 is not a dedicated EV since it is an electric version of the gasoline-powered G80 that has been on sale for a while already.

This new model benefits from the same 800-volt battery architecture as the other new Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis electric vehicles, which means it can charge from 10% to 80% in 22 minutes by using a 350-kW level 3 charging station.

Once fully charged, the 87,2-kWh battery should be able to power the luxury sedan for close to 282 miles (454 kilometres), although this figure has yet to be confirmed by the EPA.

The Electrified G80 will be offered in a single trim level starting at $79,825 in the United States.

This version will be equipped with a dual motor powertrain that should deliver 365 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels. In order to be more efficient, the Eco drive mode will turn the sedan into a rear-wheel drive vehicle only.

The Electrified G80 will also feature most of the equipment available on the gasoline-burning model as standard, such as the Highway Driving Assist, the electronically controlled suspension, the Remote Smart Parking Assist, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a massaging driver’s seat, and a three-zone automatic climate control system.

Other features specific to the electric version include a heat pump to make the cabin heating system more efficient, roof-mounted solar panels, and Vehicle-to-Load charging, which makes it possible to operate electrical equipment by tapping into the power stored in the vehicle’s battery.

Genesis will benefit from the launch of the Electrified G80 to extend its electric vehicle offering to four additional US States, in addition to the four where the GV60 was already offered.
