Genesis has offered up preliminary pricing and spec details for two of its upcoming EVs – the Electrified GV70 SUV and the Electrified G80 sedan – ahead of their Australian launches in the third quarter of 2022.

This pair form two-thirds of Genesis’s premium EV rollout this year, with the third model being the smaller GV60 – unlike the other pair, this model is a ground-up design that shares bits with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6.

Genesis Electrified GV70

The Genesis Electrified GV70 mid-size crossover will be priced between $105,000 and $115,000 before on-road costs.

That’s cheaper than luxury rivals including the BMW iX3 ($114,900), Audi e-tron 50 quattro ($139,900) and Mercedes-Benz EQC400 4Matic ($124,300).

It will sit atop the GV70 range, which at present is headlined by the twin-turbo V6 GV70 3.5T Sport AWD with luxury package, priced a smidgen under $90,000 plus on-road costs. Just the one Electrified GV70 variant will be offered, presumably in some part down to supply.

Standard features will include a 16-speaker and 1050W Lexicon Harman audio system, 14.5-inch HD display, heated and ventilated front ‘Ergo motion’ seats, model-specific 20-inch wheels, and a panoramic sunroof. Matte paint will be the only optional extra.

The GV70 EV sports a 77.4kWh battery enabling a driving range of 450km (claimed), capable of DC charging at up to 350kW (10-80 per cent in a theoretical 20 minutes or less). Drive comes from a dual-motor setup outputting up to 360kW (boost mode) and 700Nm.

In addition to charging, the Electrified GV70 is capable of V2L with a power output of 3.6kW.

Genesis claims the Electrified GV70 will do 0-100km/h 4.5 seconds.

There’ll be multi-stage regenerative braking and an adaptive damping system that ‘reads’ the road ahead, calibrated with some local testing.

Genesis Electrified G80

The Genesis Electrified G80 large sedan will be a steeper proposition: priced between $140,000 and $150,000 before on-road costs.

For reference, this is around the same price as the Tesla Model S Long Range before pricing was removed from the company’s website.

Competitors are harder to find, but for context the base RWD Porsche Taycan costs $156,300 (not that they’re entirely competitors, since one is plush and the other sporty), and the Audi e-tron GT kicks off at $181,700. The Mercedes-Benz EQE is also set to arrive here, this year.

It will of course sit atop the G80 range, which at present is headlined by the twin-turbo V6 G80 3.5T Sport AWD with Sport and Luxury packages, priced at $121,000. Just the one Electrified G80 variant will be offered, as with the GV70.

Standard features will include a 21-speaker Lexicon audio system, 14.5-inch HD display with trick augmented reality navigation, heated and ventilated seats, model-specific 19-inch wheels, and novel rooftop solar panels rather than a sunroof.

Matte paint will be an option, as will the cool Matira Blue metallic.

The G80 EV sports a more capacious 87.2kWh battery enabling a driving range of around 500km (claimed), capable of DC charging at up to 350kW (10-80 per cent in a theoretical 25 minutes or less). Drive comes from a dual-motor setup outputting up to 272kW and 700Nm.

In addition to charging, the Electrified G80 is capable of V2L with a power output of 3.6kW.

Genesis quotes a 0-100km/h time of around five seconds.

There’ll be multi-stage regenerative braking and an adaptive damping system that ‘reads’ the road ahead, calibrated with some local testing.
