The Genesis GV60 will be the upstart luxury marque's first dedicated EV. Despite its Hyundai/Kia roots, it will have a distinct personality.

We’ve seen photos of the interior of the Genesis GV60, and now the exterior has been unofficially revealed. 

The photo which was posted on Instagram by user qqqqqding overnight shows the undisguised rear of the GV60 during a promotional video shoot. 

While is the image is low resolution, we can see the car’s bisected tail-light treatment, which links it graphically with the rest of the Genesis range. 

There’s also black plastic cladding section on the C-pillar which serves to visually join the rear windscreen with the side window treatment. 

The flush-fitting door handles likely reduce the GV60’s aerodynamic drag, as well as giving it a more upmarket air.

We’ve yet to see the front undisguised, but it should have a blanked-off version of the Genesis five-point grille. 

Under the skin the GV60 uses the same E-GMP platform as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6

The interior and exterior treatments for all three cars will be unique, with shared customer-facing features kept to a minimum. 

Given the luxury pricing and positioning of Genesis, the GV60 will likely be available at launch only with high-spec drivetrains. 

At the apex of the Kia EV6 range is the GT, which has a stonking dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain with 430kW of power and 740Nm.

Together with a 77kWh battery pack, the EV6 GT will have a 0-100km/h time of 3.5 seconds and an expected (WLTP) range of 405km.

This battery pack can also be paired with a less powerful 239kW/605Nm all-wheel drive system, as well as a 168kW/350Nm rear-wheel drive setup.

For the Australia-bound Ioniq 5 range, the range-topping model has a 73kWh battery that’s mated to either a 160kW/350Nm rear-wheel drive system or 225kW/605Nm dual-motor all-wheel drive layout. 

Both the EV6 and Ioniq 5 support three-phase AC charging up to 11kW, and DC charging up to 800W and 250kW.
