2023 Genesis GV60 electric SUV price and availability announced

The 2023 Genesis GV60 may be the company’s first dedicated platform electric vehicle, but Hyundai’s luxury brand isn’t pricing the model as if it were a brand new challenger, it’s actually more expensive than many key rivals. The electric compact crossover SUV will start at $59,980 for the base Advanced model, while the top-end Performance trim will ring in at $68,980 (both prices include a $1,090 delivery charge). The distinctively styled GV60 comes standard with all-wheel drive and will battle like the Audi Q4 E-Tron ($51,095 to $58,695), Tesla Model Y ($64,440 to $69,440) and Volvo XC40 Recharge ($52,795 to $59,245) – all prices include delivery.

The new model will, however, be eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit and will arrive extremely well equipped. Standard features include some cutting-edge technology such as Face Connect, which works with a door-mounted near-infrared camera and fingerprint sensor to provide 100% keyless access and keyless start. That’s right, you don’t need a keychain at all. , just your face and fingerprint, like a phone. (A pair of traditional key fobs are also included and you can also use your phone or apple watch as a digital key on Performance models).

The GV60 also includes Vehicle to load as a standard feature. V2L allows users to draw power from the vehicle’s 77.4kW lithium-ion polymer battery and export it directly to power other things – camping, your home appliances during a power outage or even charging another electric vehicle.

Beyond these high-tech features and various surprising and delightful new features such as the funky backlit crystal gearshift ball, you’ll find a super high-quality interior packed with intuitive and powerful technologies like a suite of standard cameras at 360 degrees, plus available niceties like massaging Nappa leather seats and a 17-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system. A full suite of advanced driver assistance systems is standard, even on base models.

Additionally, all models come standard with dual-motor all-wheel-drive powertrains. Advanced versions offer 314 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque, while Performance models develop 429 horsepower and the same peak torque. That’s enough to hit 60 mph from a standstill in 4 seconds.

As for range, Genesis says the GV60 should go up to 248 miles on a charge in the Advanced trim, while the more heavily-equipped Performance will run around 235 miles.

It’s really nice here.


All GV60s come with three years of free 30-minute charging sessions at Electrify America charging stations, as well as a lifetime subscription to Genesis Connected Care telematics services, which includes SOS emergency assistance, automatic notification collision information, vehicle health reports and bumper-to-bumper. live updates. Additional Remote and Guidance plans are free for three years, and paid subscriptions thereafter.

The 2023 Genesis GV60 will initially only be offered in four states starting in late spring/early summer: California, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York, all traditionally strong EV markets. Sample deployment plans for other states will be posted soon, supply issues permitting.
