Genesis Motor America announced that the brand’s third all-electric model, the Electrified GV70, is now available at U.S. retailers. The Electrified GV70 is assembled in the United States at the brand’s production facility in Montgomery, Alabama.
“We are pleased to announce that our first U.S.-assembled model has begun to arrive at retailers in 15 states,” said Claudia Marquez, chief operating officer of Genesis Motor North America. “The launch of the Electrified GV70 is a significant moment for the brand as we continue to grow our EV lineup for American customers.”
Starting at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRPi) of $65,850, the Electrified GV70 Advanced AWD includes an entire suite of available safety and advanced driver assistance systems and is comprehensively equipped with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and navigation system with a 14.5-inch HD screen, 20-inch alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof, leather seatings, heated and ventilated seats, vehicle-to-load charging and more. The Electrified GV70 Prestige AWD package, at an MSRP of $72,650, adds Nappa leather seating surfaces with quilting, a leatherette wrapped upper instrument panel, microfiber suede headliner, head-up display, a 3D instrument cluster, premium audio, active noise control-road, heated 2nd row seats and steering wheel, and manual rear sunshades.
The Electrified GV70 is available at select Genesis retailers in 15 states including Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.
The Electrified GV70 offers powerful performance paired with standard all-wheel drive (AWD). The dual electric motors produce up to 320 kW, equivalent to 429 HP, while the addition of 350kW rapid charging enables the 77.4 kWh battery to charge from 10% to 80% in approximately 18 minutes, or more than 60 miles in five minutes (under optimal conditions). Additionally, the 400V/800V multi-rapid charging system allows owners to utilize various forms of charging infrastructure. The multi-rapid charging system enables fast and stable charging by raising the voltage supplied by typical chargers from 400V to 800V, and owners can use both 400V and 800V charging infrastructure without the need for an additional converter.
The Electrified GV70 offers standard Boost Mode, allowing the driver to experience exhilarating performance with 483 HP of output for 10 seconds.
The Disconnector Actuator System (DAS) automatically connects or disconnects the motor and drive shaft depending on driving conditions. This enables seamless switching between 2WD and AWD, ultimately helping reduce unnecessary power loss and increasing driving efficiency. Estimated range for a fully charged Electrified GV70 is up to 236 miles AER.
The Electrified GV70 driving experience is further enhanced with Smart Regenerative Braking System 2.0, which regenerates energy through the braking system based on driving habits, real-time navigation, and road conditions. In driving mode, the Intelligent Pedal (i-Pedal) allows the driver to accelerate, decelerate, and slowly to a stop using just the accelerator pedal.
For added driving comfort, the Electrified GV70 also comes equipped with Active Noise Control-Road (ANC-R) that significantly reduces the level of noise by measuring and analyzing road noises and simultaneously creating soundwaves at opposite frequencies.
The Electrified GV70 also includes a V2L (Vehicle to Load) feature that supports a 3.6kW charge, which is higher than the power supply in the average home, enabling customers to conveniently use small electric appliances outside of the vehicle.
The crest grille features an inverted G-Matrix pattern which incorporates a hidden EV charging port. A now iconic two-line headlamp identifies the Electrified GV70 as part of the brand’s signature two-line architecture.
As for colors, the Electrified GV70 is available at launch in Vik Black, Savile Silver, Makalu Gray, and Makalu Gray Matte.
The interior boasts a driver-focused design, offering an intuitive and dynamic driving experience. A variety of materials, including woven wool, tricot, and suede fabrics have been used to furnish the model. The Electrified GV70 is available with a Glacier White or Obsidian Black interior, with perforated leather seating. The Prestige package adds a two-tone Glacier White option with copper piping and a refined quilting pattern in the Nappa leather seating.
Technology and Comfort
Navigation is standard with a class-leading 14.5-inch HD screen and cloud-based platform optimize routing, voice recognition and over-the-air updates. Ambient lighting complements the dash and center console, and a 12.3-inch digital 3D cluster found in the Prestige package tracks eye movement and displays a stereoscopic 3D image, improving visibility and convenience for the driver. A fingerprint reader starts vehicle and loads driver profiles.
Connected Care – Now Standard with No Expiration
For all new 2023 models, Genesis vehicles now come included with Connected Care, with no expiration.
Connected Care provides an always-on connection that helps with peace-of-mind safety features like Automatic Collision Notification, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, and SOS Emergency Assistance when the vehicle has access to a cellular network connection. Additionally, a Monthly Vehicle Health Report, Maintenance, and Diagnostic Alerts are now included as standard.
The convenience features of Remote and Guidance packages will remain available with no additional charge for three years.
The Electrified GV70 also features Genesis Connected Services’ all-new electric vehicle specific features such as Schedule Climate Control, Monthly Vehicle Health Report, Genesis Intelligent Assistant App, and Start / Stop charging remotely.
Genesis Connected Services and Connected Care depend on and are subject to commercial LTE wireless network availability.
Electrify America & Genesis
In collaboration with Electrify America, Electrified GV70 owners will receive three years of 30-minute complimentary charging sessions from the date of vehicle purchase. Owners will have access to hyper-fast charging on Electrify America’s coast-to-coast charging network and can seamlessly locate and access charging stations while on the road via the Genesis Connected Services and Electrify America mobile apps.
