The electrified GV70 inherits the tradition of GV70, inherits the spacious interior space of its predecessors, and adds outstanding performance and a series of new technologies specifically designed for electric vehicles.
Genesis officially unveiled its world premiere GV70 electric model at the 2021 Guangzhou Auto Show. The electric GV70 inherits the tradition of the GV70, inherits the spacious interior space of its predecessors, and adds outstanding performance and a number of new exclusive designs for electric vehicles.
In appearance, the front panel displays Genesis’s iconic coat of arms grille, which has evolved into an aerodynamic coat of arms with an inverted G matrix pattern and contains a hidden EV charging port, creating a simple and sophisticated appearance . The minimalist horizontal shape of the rear bumper completes the modern image of the model. The simplified tailpipe-free skid plate emphasizes the electric characteristics of the SUV, while the iconic and progressive two-line four-lights add the finishing touch to the GV70 electric model, using Genesis’s iconic two-line architecture.
The interior adopts a driver-centric design to provide an intuitive and dynamic driving experience. Inspired by the “Beauty of White Space” interior design concept, Electrified GV70 gives customers the opportunity to write their own stories with interiors that reflect the sustainable development ambition of this electric vehicle and Genesis’s commitment to sustainable development in the future. The model uses a variety of environmentally friendly materials, each with high-quality finishes, to complete the design that reflects Genesis’s vision of sustainable luxury from the inside to the outside. Genesis will provide glacier white interiors for this model.
By lowering the central tunnel to ensure a second-row space equivalent to that of the GV70, the interior competitiveness of the Electrified GV70 has been enhanced.
It will only be available as an AWD (all-wheel drive) model with a maximum output of 215 bhp, front and rear torque of 350Nm, total maximum output of 360kW (in Boost mode) and 700Nm of torque. This powerful model can be used in Boost mode Accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. In addition, the Electrified GV70 is Genesis’s first model equipped with e-Terrain Mode for SUVs, which can provide a stable driving experience in various environments.
It is estimated that the maximum cruising range per charge exceeds 500 kilometers. At the same time, the addition of 350kW fast charging allows the battery to be charged from 10% to 80% in 18 minutes.
The electric version of the GV70 also includes the V2L (Vehicle to Load) function, which supports 3.6kW charging, which is higher than the power supply of ordinary households, allowing customers to conveniently use electrical appliances outside the car.
In addition, the isolator actuator system (DAS) can automatically connect or disconnect the motor and drive shaft in consideration of various driving conditions. These conditions include vehicle speed and driving mode, enabling seamless switching between 2WD and AWD-reducing unnecessary power loss while improving efficiency.
The driving experience of the new model is further enhanced by a number of cutting-edge technologies. Intelligent Regenerative Braking System 2.0 regenerates energy through the braking system according to driving habits, real-time navigation and road conditions. In driving mode, i-Pedal (Smart Pedal) allows the driver to accelerate, decelerate and stop using only the accelerator pedal.
