Genesis unveiled the all-electric version of the GV70 two-row SUV at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition this week. The GV70 was launched in 2020 from the premium arm of Hyundai to compete in the compact SUV segment.

The arrival of the EV model on the show floor follows the market debut of the internal combustion engine powered GV70, which is available for sale in the US today. The all-electric Genesis GV60, a small SUV, made its debut earlier this year.

Genesis Global Head Jay Chang said, “Our global vision of creating a sustainable future through electrification is a natural extension of our core commitment that dates the launch of Genesis in 2015: a commitment to creating a positive impact in the lives of our customers. ” in a press release. “I am pleased to unveil yet another new EV model in China that celebrates our audacious move towards a sustainable future.”

To enhance the aerodynamics to aid with the GV70’s fuel efficiency, Genesis has made a number of customizable design choices. The crest grille, which covers the front, has been changed to a G-Matrix pattern and features a hidden charging port.

At the rear, the rear bumper takes a minimal horizontal shape. The Genesis Two Lines architecture informs the design of the quad lamp.

While details on the motor and range will be available closer to the North American launch, Genesis says the SUV can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds in Boost mode.

All-wheel drive is standard on the electric model. A disconnector actuator system (DAS) can automatically switch between two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive based on driving conditions to prevent unnecessary power loss.

Moving away from the interior design concept “Beauty of White Space”, the cabin has been crafted with eco-friendly materials. Apart from the already available Obsidian Black and Vanilla Beige, the company will also offer the interiors in Glacier White.

Drivers can access a variety of electric vehicle charging infrastructure through the 400V/800V multi-rapid charging system. Vehicle driving will increase the voltage of the charging station from 400 volts to 800 volts without the use of motors and converters that use inverters.

The 350 kW rapid charger can charge the battery from 10 percent to 80 percent in less than 20 minutes.

The Vehicle to Load (V2L) system provides a 2.6-kWh power supply to access electronic devices near the vehicle.

Active noise control technology uses four sensors and eight microphones, measuring and analyzing street noise and working to reduce noise levels by creating sound in opposite phases. Noise is a major concern among EV buyers as they no longer have engine noise to hide the noises from the road, other vehicles and their surroundings.

Smart Regenerative Braking System 2.0 recovers power through the braking system based on driving habits, navigation and road conditions.

The suspension system can be controlled automatically by the car’s front camera and navigation system to optimize the drive experience.

Genesis says that the specifications have been confirmed for the Korean market only for now. North American details will be revealed at a later date.
