Motor1: 2022 Genesis Electrified GV70 revealed with 483 bhp and AWD

Motor1 website reports, “Another auto show in China, another Genesis EV is breaking cover. Following the Electrified G80 from Auto Shanghai 2021 in April, the Electrified GV70 is premiering today at the Auto Guangzhou 2021. Unlike the GV60 riding on a bespoke electric car arhitecture, the other two zero-emissions models retain the original platform by yanking out the oily bits and replacing them with electric motors and a battery pack.”

“Much like the Electrified G80, the new ICE-less GV70 comes as standard with all-wheel drive, and will automatically switch to two-wheel drive when the extra power is not needed as a way to boost efficiency. There’s something interesting about the dual motors worth pointing out. Specifically, the luxury crossover has a Boost Mode, enabling a temporary peak output of 483 bhp (360 kilowatts) and 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-metres) of torque. The saloon lacks this brief extra punch and offers only 365 bhp (272 kW) along with the same amount of torque as the crossover.”
