The GV60 is an all-new vehicle, and there is no need for big changes for the upcoming season. That means the 2023 Genesis GV60 will be pretty much the same as it was when the EV stepped into the market in 2021. It is the first electric crossover SUV for the Genesis family, part of the Hyundai group. The Korean carmaker is expanding its offer and the premium segment is where they seek more attention. The GV80 mid-size SUV introduced them to the luxury automotive world. Now, it is time for new achievements.
The crossover is still relatively new, and there is no enough feedback to make a big list of pros and cons. It belongs to the compact market. There is enough room for five passengers, leaving space for cargo. The pricing starts from $60,000. It is not too attractive. But, the 2023 Genesis GV60 is an all-electric premium model. You can tune the best configuration for yourself and make it cost even more. The maximum range should be around 310 miles and the same high-end configuration will produce 430 horsepower, providing an excellent driving impression.
2023 Genesis GV60 Performance: Range and Specs
The battery that produces power for the 2023 Genesis GV60 is a 77.4 kWh unit. The base form sends energy to the rear wheels. Total outputs are 225 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. This version of the 2023 Genesis GV60 can go 280 miles without recharging. Of course, after some time, the battery capacity will start dropping. If you pick an all-wheel drive, the range is 30 miles shorter. On the other hand, the power jumps to 315 hp and torque is at 480 pound-feet. The 2023 Genesis GV60 Performance edition comes with the Boost Mode. Total power is 430 hp, torque stays at the same level, and the range is shortened to 230 miles. It is still more than some current EVs can do.
The company is also working on numerous upgrades. The focus is currently on the recharging system. With the proper equipment, the battery can be restored from 10 to 80 percent in just 18 minutes. Full charging takes more time, but Hyundai promised to drop it under 1 hour. Also, a version with 310 miles of range is expected to have a premiere.
The base price of the 2023 Genesis GV60 will be around $60,000. We have mixed feelings about this cost. Ford Mustang Mach-E can save $15,000, but it is not a luxury vehicle. For this amount of money, you can buy an EV from a proven carmaker, Tesla. Model Y is a bit more expensive. If you are fan of conventional drivetrains, then there are plenty of options available, including luxury seven-seater SUVs. But, electric vehicles are the future of the industry. Their production is still expensive, but the price is dropping in recent years. Plus, have in mind that you will be eligible for the tax refund in the US.
Features and Accessories
The 2023 Genesis GV60 is the next step in the evolution of Hyundai vehicles. The company is installing its best features in the electric SUV. Design is unique and bold. The coupe crossover looks pretty attractive and we can imagine it as a competitor.
The front fascia features double lines of lights. We already saw it on other Genesis vehicles, and we also saw a line of LED lamps on the latest editions by Hyundai. The crest grille takes a lower position compared to the rest of the lineup. In the rear end, the GV60 features a spoiler. It boosts the aggressive look.
The Crystal Sphere is the most intriguing part of the interior. When it’s off, the crystal sphere is a mysterious detail. While the vehicle is started, the sphere rotates and shows its function – Shift By Wire becomes available. The central console is designed in floating language. It also comes with the next-gen infotainment, the most advanced system you will find in any Hyundai or Genesis vehicle. The interior is built from recycled materials, which makes the GV60 an eco-friendly crossover.
For now, only two packages are available – Standard and Performance. The company unveiled eight colors for the 2023 Genesis GV60. These are Carbon Metal, Uyuni White, Matterhorn White, Melbourne Grey, Savile Silver, Vik Black, Hanauma Mint and Capri Blue. The interior uses a plain paintjob, or a contrasting colors layout.
