New premium electric crossover, the 2022 Genesis GV60 model year, presented in renders. This is the first compact model with which Genesis will debut in Europe.
The new Genesis GV60 is the next generation electric crossover that will compete with the Germans in the Premium segment when it debuts in 2021. The rendered model will feature an avant-garde design inherited from the Mint concept shown at the 2019 New York Auto Show. As it became known during the presentation, Genesis is targeting Europe, and the compact segment will become one of the means of implementing the plan.
The Genesis GV60 crossover will be one of the real stars arriving in Europe in 2021, although it will go on sale in 2022. The model will expand the range of the Korean brand and become one of the new generation of the electric car group.
For testing, the Koreans closed the front of the prototype, retaining the diamond-shaped radiator grill and limiting the engine cooling to a larger grille at the bottom of the bumper. The line of optics will follow the line of the “big brothers”, with two strips of LEDs on the front and rear, which will give the new electric car the most futuristic style.
Spy photos confirm this data, as well as the shape of the “floating” roof with a steep slope of the A-pillars and a slight slope in the rear direction. Details of the Mint concept are also visible in the form of a rear window and a C-pillar ending in a sportier rear end. The smaller Genesis model will also retain plastic wheel arches and side skirts, enhancing the SUV’s styling.
The third feature of the E-GMP platform is a very open interior space as well as a completely new dashboard focused on connectivity. The model will also have four-wheel drive and two electric motors with a maximum output of 313 hp. and the ability to adjust at different levels. They will be connected to 58 and 77 kWh batteries, with a maximum autonomy of 550 kilometers, rechargeable in 18 minutes thanks to 800 volt technology.
