Genesis GV60 Electric Review, Price and Specifications

Genesis GV60 Electric Review, Price and Specifications

Genesis the luxury arm of the Hyundai Group has announced pricing for the brand’s newest electric vehicle which is the 2023 Genesis GV60 Electric. This new SUV slots in just below the excellent GV70 in terms of size, but the GV60 isn’t just a smaller crossover — it’s the automaker’s first electric vehicle and it shares a platform with the awesome Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6. Those two electric SUVs/hatchbacks proved Hyundai and Kia can be serious contenders in the EV space as the competition really starts heating up.

Rival luxury SUVs such as the Audi Q4 e-tron, the Volvo XC40 Recharge, and the coupe-like C40 Recharge offer similar prestige and driving range, but the GV60’s detail-oriented design and amusing flourishes make it an attractive and off-beat alternative.

Genesis GV60 Review

The GV60 is a new model for Genesis and the brand’s third SUV. It’s also the brand’s first foray into the electric vehicle marketplace and it shares its underpinnings with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. The ambitious Genesis luxury brand is tackling the luxury EV segment with its satisfying and whimsical 2023 GV60 crossover. The GV60 incorporates styling elements found in other Genesis models, but it lacks the brand’s large trapezoidal grille that stretches between the dual-element headlamps, substituting a slimmer lower grille across the front bumper.

Inside, the GV60’s cabin looks decidedly premium, with a large monolithic display screen serving as both gauge cluster and infotainment system and a novel crystal sphere shifter that rotates to reveal itself when the SUV is powered up. At launch, buyers can choose from the 314-hp Advanced or 429-hp Performance trims; estimated driving range varies from 235- to 248-miles per charge.

Genesis GV60 EV Motor Power & Performance

Motors GV60 AWD

The first of the two motor options is the GV60 AWD comes equipped with a 160kW at the rear and a 74kW motor up the front for a total output of 234kW and maximum torque of 605Nm. On paper, even the entry-level model offers more power than the next most expensive EV on the market – the BMW iX3 we drove earlier this year – that starts from AUD$114,900 plus on-road costs and produces 210kW to the rear wheels only.

GV60 AWD Performance

The performance variant of the GV60 raises the power output of both motors to 180kW rear and 180kW front. This results in a total output of 360kW when using ‘Boost Mode’ activated by a button on the steering wheel. This mode activates additional performance for 10 seconds and enables the GV60 Performance AWD to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds (4.6sec without Boost Mode). You also receive a Rear Limited Slip Differential (E-LSD), black monobloc front brakes, and adaptive road-preview capable electronic suspension.

Genesis GV60 EV Range, Charging & Battery


The 77.4kWh battery offers both cars a WLTP range in the region of 470km. You’ll have a harder time achieving that number in the more powerful GV60 AWD Performance (466km WLTP), however, the rear-wheel-biased e-AWD system does feature a Disconnector Actuator System (DAS) that separates or connects the motor and the drive shaft to cater for driving conditions and maximize range. Moving down the price bracket and you have the Tesla Model Y Long Range with a maximum WLTP range of 514km – starting from AUD$96,700.


Unlike the Tesla, the Genesis GV60 utilizes the same variable 400V/800V charging capabilities that we’ve loved from luxury EVs like the Porsche Taycan. This means stable and rapid charging with various charging infrastructures, and when charging at 350kW with the ultra-speed charging function, you’ll get from 10 per cent to 80 per cent in just 18 minutes.


Both Genesis GV60 models come equipped with a 77.4kWh battery. This is considered an average size for EV batteries today and is exactly the same size as the Kia EV6 as they’re both based on the same E-GMP platform. Compare this to the Tesla Model Y Long Range which boasts an 82.8kWh battery pack and more range.

The GV60 also introduces battery preconditioning for charging to the E-GMP platform for the first time. Kia owners have about vehicle not having this capability, however, an update is said to arrive later this year and for MY2023 vehicles. The battery conditioning function will preheat the battery to secure better performance when the ambient temperature is low, as well as reduce charging time by ensuring optimal battery temperature.

Genesis GV60 Electric Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

As the smallest SUV in the Genesis lineup, the GV60 isn’t as spacious as the larger GV70 and GV80 models. However, it offers a unique interior design that’s more high-tech in its appearance. Genesis has taken some chances here and integrated some cool motifs and features, including a gear selector that flips upside down when in park and has the appearance of a crystal ball. The GV60 also boasts some novel tech, such as a facial recognition system that allows the owner to unlock and start the vehicle without needing a key. Other biometric tech such as fingerprint readers are also incorporated into the SUV’s design.

Infotainment and Connectivity of Genesis GV60 Electric

All GV60 models come with a large 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen that shares a panel with an identically-sized 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both included, although neither works wirelessly. The Genesis infotainment system works well enough and can be controlled via a clickwheel on the center console if touching the screen itself is too far of a reach. A Bang & Olufsen stereo system is standard, which is a nice feature that most rivals would charge extra for.

Safety and Driver Assistance Features of Genesis GV60 Electric

A full suite of driver-assistance features is standard on every GV60 model, including automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control. For more information about the GV60’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:

Standard automated emergency braking, Standard lane-keeping assist with lane-departure warning

Standard adaptive cruise control with a lane-centering feature

Genesis GV60 EV Price

While we’re tempted by the Performance trim—which unlocks a maximum of 483-hp from it’s two electric motors—the better buy is the Advanced trim. While the Advanced only makes 314 hp, it also comes with a slightly longer 248-mile driving range and still comes generously equipped with 20-inch wheels, a Bang & Olufsen stereo system, heated and ventilated front seats, and a host of driver-assistance features, among many others.

Genesis GV60 Price Australia

The Genesis GV60 AWD start from AUD$103,700 before on-road costs. The more powerful Genesis GV60 AWD Performance starts from AUD$110,700 before on-road costs.

The extra money gets you more power, equal range on paper, and a host of extras including a Rear Limited Slip Differential (E-LSD), black monobloc front brakes, and adaptive road-preview capable electronic suspension. Choosing the Performance variant for a price difference of AUD$7,000 is a no-brainer in our eyes and we expect this to be the most popular model.


The Genesis GV60 is set to arrive in Australia in September 2022.

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage of Genesis GV60 Electric

The Genesis brand offers excellent warranty coverage that stretches for far longer than most other premium automakers. The GV60 comes with powertrain coverage for up to 10 years or 100,000 miles and complimentary scheduled maintenance for three years or 36,000 miles. The Jaguar I-Pace offers similar bumper-to-bumper coverage and longer complimentary maintenance, but the powertrain policy is nearly half that of the Genesis’s.

1 Powertrain warranty covers 10 years or 100,000 miles
2 Complimentary maintenance is covered for 3 years or 36,000 miles
3 5-year / 60000 miles warranty
4 8-year warranty on high voltage battery
