After announcing an electric version of the GV70 crossover in late 2021, Genesis now has detailed plans for the US launch of this new EV. The North American version of the 2023 Genesis Electrified GV70, which will be built in Montgomery, Alabama, will begin production in December. The US-spec car, pictured here, was recently shown for the first time at the LA Auto Show.
Like its sibling, the Electrified G80 sedan, the Electrified GV70 looks almost identical to its petrol-powered equivalent, but has a completely different powertrain underneath. Front and rear electric motors combine to produce 429 horsepower in the Performance configuration, or up to 483 hp in a special boost mode that operates for 10 seconds at a time. A less powerful base drivetrain may also be offered. Genesis hasn’t released battery capacity or range figures yet, but does say it will be capable of DC fast charging at up to 350 kilowatts.
Pricing is not yet available, but Genesis does say that it will be sold in eight states first: Arizona, California, Connecticut, New Jersey, Nevada, New York, Utah and Washington. More states may be added later, as the Electrified G80 sedan is now sold in 12 states after Genesis added Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Virginia to the list.
