The South Korean brand is in full swing developing the all-electric crossover Genesis GV90. According to rumors, the new product may debut as early as 2023.

Genesis Motor is only six years old, but by the end of the decade, the premium brand will look very different than it does today. It has big plans for the electrification of its lineup, which are still under way, but the automaker hopes that it will be able to offer eight electric vehicles by 2030. The GV60 is his first dedicated electric vehicle, and a larger, more luxurious model is said to be under development. This information came from a Korean automotive publication.

The publication states that Genesis may already be developing the GV90, which will be positioned higher in the current lineup than the current GV80 and positioned as the flagship model.

This is not the first time we have heard about this. The report also notes that the crossover will also be fully electric, so it could come with a lot of technology. Genesis will likely save on R&D by placing the new model on the E-GMP (Electric Global Modular Platform) platform that powers the GV60, KIA EV6, Hyundai Ioniq 5.

We may have first seen the big platform that will underpin this new model last month with the KIA EV9 and Hyundai Seven Concepts. Both are large, full-size crossovers, and both underscore their conceptual status with bold designs. However, both brands are improving their EV designs, so the end products may not be much different and we should expect the Genesis variant to stand out as well.

Unfortunately, none of these concepts provide details on the all-electric GV90. Earlier this year, Genesis registered seven trademarks, including the GV90e, but trademarks are not a guarantee of any particular model coming soon. Rumors have it that the premium brand could unveil a new electric crossover as early as 2023, although it could be a year before it goes on sale.
