Genesis Enters The EV Market With An Electrified Version Of Its G80 Luxury Sedan

Just a few weeks ago, Genesis rocked the auto industry with the ‘Concept X,’ a stunning all-electric GT previewing its EV design language. Eager to make good on its upcoming sustainability initiatives, the Korean-based brand is already back for more; however, this time, it’s with a model that could be hitting showrooms by the end of the year.

It’s called the ‘Electrified G80,’ and it’s essentially a battery-powered variant of Genesis’ flagship G80 luxury sedan. In practice, this means that while it bears a striking similarity to its petrol-powered sibling, it also receives a number of eco-conscious upgrades. For instance, it now features a roof-mounted solar panel and an integrated charging port in the grille. And when it comes to the interior, you’ll find it to be significantly more sustainable, with ‘forged wood’ trim, natural dyes, and fabrics made from recycled PET. What’s more, it gains active road noise control as well as a suspension optimization system that takes inputs from the front camera and navigation. At this point, specs are limited, but we do know that it’ll offer up to 310 miles of range, 22-minute fast-charging, and a claimed 4.9s 0-60mph time. Click the link below for more.
