Genesis announced the start of sales of its first electric vehicle GV60 in the United States. The GV60 will be offered in two packages in the USA, with the GV60 Advanced AWD starting at an MSRP of $58,890 and the GV60 Performance AWD at $67,890.
Initially, the 2023 Genesis GV60 will only launch at select Genesis retailers in California, Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York. In terms of technical specifications, the American Genesis GV60 is not far off from its European counterparts: For the GV60 Advanced AWD, the electric drive system runs on a 74 kW front and a 160kW rear electric motor, combined with a 77.4 kWh battery, which makes for a 248-mile range. The 2023 Genesis GV60 Performance AWD upgrades the front electric motor to 160 kW, and a Boost Mode allows for up to 360 kW.
“Today we are pleased to begin our journey towards full electrification with the launch of GV60,” said Claudia Marquez, chief operating officer of Genesis Motor North America. “We are excited that our American customers will be able to experience the innovative technologies, bold design, and extensive suite of complementary services in this ground-breaking vehicle.”
Genesis Motor America also announced an agreement with Electrify America to offer three years of 30-minute complimentary charging sessions from the date of vehicle purchase. “As we take this step into our fully-electrified future, Genesis is pleased to be collaborating with Electrify America to deliver convenient charging solutions to our customers,” said Marquez.
“We are continuing to transform the ultra-fast charging experience for EV drivers through our collaborations with leading automakers” said Giovanni Palazzo, president and chief executive officer of Electrify America. “By offering three years of complimentary 30-minute charging sessions to new Genesis EV drivers, together we’re helping create an electric transportation future that benefits drivers and communities across the U.S.”
The upcoming GV70 model will commence production later this year in Montgomery, Alabama, marking the first Genesis production in the United States and the first time a Genesis model will be produced outside of South Korea.
