Before she misses you, Genesis GV60 look deep into your eyes. Don’t worry, his look isn’t romantic. The small camera on the B-rack gives you one time and then unlocks the door. When you log in, you can learn more because to get started, you touch the fingerprint recognition button on the center console. But the car is electric, so you don’t run anything.
The GV60 is Genesis’ first EV. Without the engine coming to life, the sign that you’ve turned on the GV60 is that the glass sphere in the center console rotates around to detect the switch. This is a new design that we expect to spread to the rest of the Genesis line soon. Like other Genesis models, the interior has a clean and uncluttered look. The glass panel, the same width as the Mississippi, contains two 12.3-inch displays: sensors directly in front of the driver and a central touch screen. Unfortunately, mirroring your phone (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) requires a cord, even if wireless is becoming the norm – one of the few bugs in the GV60.
Built on the E-GMP architecture, a special EV platform shared with Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5, The GV60 comes in crossover shape, being sleek and attractive. The hood-clamshell hides a small storage space in the front, and behind the second row there is 24 cubic feet of space, enough for full luggage. The branded headlight design of the brand with split headlights looks like a winged badge, although it is slimmer and smaller in the face than on other models. Two versions will be available at launch: the Advanced AWD model has two electric motors with a total output of 314 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque, while the all-wheel drive Performance trim delivers 429 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque with short overboost “with 483 horses and 516 pound-feet available for 10 seconds of nonsense.
We rode on a more powerful version of the Performance and can report that after stopping with the Overboost enabled the front engine briefly overloads the front tires, even though the rear ones also work. Judging by the pressure on our spine at full impact, we expect that at 483 hp, the GV60 will accelerate to 60 mph in the mid-3s.
Take a few turns and the GV60 will be safe and lively thanks to fast driving. The electronic limited-slip differential at the rear provides power transmission on both sides of the road, and a drop in torque at the front and rear provides rear-wheel drive. However, the harder you push, the more you will learn about the approximate 4900-pound weight when Michelin Primacy Tour A / S tires start audibly protesting. The regeneration system, which is able to control one pedal, does not allow the brakes to feel severe stress. Body control is good. Processing is Porsche Macan-like, except that Genesis doesn’t work with downshifting – it just goes.
The camera-based system, which reads the pavement, keeps the adaptive shock absorbers elastic on bumps. Quiet and refined, the GV60 is a compelling luxury car if you drive it calmly. Eliminate funny and headaches The Jetsons sound effects that whistle and make noise in response to the accelerator position, and almost silence due to the lack of road noise and wind. Perhaps some merit is due to the active noise reduction system with eight microphones, which plays through 17 speakers of the audio system. Be it noise reduction, noise reduction or air package, the GV60 is a quiet car.
The 77.4 kW / h battery provides 248 miles (Advanced) or 235 miles (Performance) EPA range. A Level 2 charger will recharge your battery by 10 to 100 percent in about seven hours. Connect to an 800-volt fast DC charger, and the battery can discharge 10 to 80 percent in the stated 18 minutes. The Advanced model costs $ 59,980, which is about $ 11,000 more than the same powertrain in the Hyundai Ioniq 5, but less than $ 4,000 more than the top-of-the-line Ioniq 5, while the Performance variant starts at 68 $ 980. Soon we will have the GV60 for instrumental testing, but after we’ve been behind the wheel, we can say it’s like at first glance.
