Genesis Builds On Its EV Lineup With An Innovative, Compact Luxury Crossover

Aug 19, 2021

As the race toward electrification mounts in its intensity, automakers everywhere are adding EVs to their lineups trying to be proactive about their clean energy initiatives. One brand that’s leading the charge is Hyundai; having dropped a series of its own cars earlier this year, it’s now following things up with an all-new Genesis.

Dubbed the ‘GV60,’ it’s the brand’s electric vehicle to be based on a dedicated EV platform: the E-GMP. While that makes the crossover stablemates with both the Hyundai Ioniq 5 as well as the Kia EV6, it’s considerably more upscale as befitting of its luxury status. Around the outside, you’ll find the signature Genesis two-line design language, with quad headlights, complementing taillights, and a reworked grille wing emblem. What’s more, the GV60 brings a number of unique innovations, including a clamshell hood and a pair of monitor-connected digital side mirrors. Moving inside, the futuristic functionality continues, as Genesis has given the EV a sphere-shaped shift-by-wire control — the Crystal Sphere — that doubles as a mood light when it’s turned off. Add to that a wide-screen infotainment cluster and a floating center console, and you’ve got quite the 21st-century setup. Performance hasn’t been announced, but you can learn more below.
