The Genesis GV90 Is A New Full-Size Electric SUV Apparently In The Works

  • New Genesis GV90 could be one of the eight new electric vehicles Genesis plans to introduce before 2030

  • The GV90 would be a full-size luxury electric SUV

Genesis has been clear about its EV intentions, announcing previously that it plans to bring eight electric vehicles to the market by 2030.

The first of those models will be the Genesis GV60 which was unveiled earlier this year. Now it seems that Genesis is turning its intention to another segment which currently has very few electric offerings, the full-size SUV segment.

According to Korean Car Blog, Genesis is apparently working on developing the GV90 which would be larger than the current GV80 and offer a 100% electric engine. It would be built on the same platform that underpins the GV60, called E-GMP, which is also used on the upcoming Kia EV6 and a Hyundai Ioniq 5.

It would be logical to think that the new Genesis GV90 would follow in the footsteps of the Hyundai Seven and Kia EV9 which were unveiled at the last Los Angeles Auto Show. Building these three models together would cut down on cost, and it is likely that they would share the same powertrain.

The Genesis GV90 would obviously be the more luxurious of the three, and could even be the new flagship for the Genesis brand. It is unclear as of yet where Genesis is headed with its upcoming electric vehicle lineup, but it is not unreasonable to think that most of those new eight models coming in the next eight years will be sport utility vehicles.

There are currently no luxury full-size electric SUVs on the market and the only competitor seems to be coming from Vinfast. Genesis is in a great position to be first to market with a new type of electric vehicle.
