The first serial electric car Genesis


Genesis continues to fuel interest in its first production electric car, the GV60 hatchback. This time, the Koreans published a small video teaser, in which they revealed the date of the global debut of the model: it will take place on September 30 at 4 am Kiev time. In the video, the electric car is only partially visible, although earlier Genesis completely declassified its design both outside and inside. But there is no official information about the technique yet – it will be revealed during the premiere.

It is known that the electric car with the GV60 index is built on the E-GMP (Electric Global Modular Platform) platform, which it shares with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and KIA EV6. Other details about the “stuffing” Genesis are still kept secret.

It is expected that the powertrains will also get the GV60 from soplatform electric cars, which are equipped with one or two motors. In the latter case, the novelty will receive four-wheel drive and, probably, a similar return to the twin-engine EV6, the electrical system of which produces 585 horsepower (740 Nm of torque) in the “hot” modification of the GT. However, according to Motor1, citing sources in South Korea, the EV6 GT will remain the most powerful of the trio.

In terms of equipment, the GV60 will receive miniature cameras instead of rear-view mirrors, recessed door handles and other smart technologies, including face and fingerprint recognition.

In addition, as part of the experiment, the GV60 can acquire a wireless charging system. Hyundai has previously been in talks with the American company WiTricity, which will supply the devices with a peak capacity of seven to 11 kilowatts. In this case, the car does not have to be plugged into a power outlet: an electric car equipped with a device will need to be parked in an equipped area and charging will start automatically.

The Genesis GV60 is slated to go on sale next year. According to the brand’s strategy, from 2025 all new models will use alternative energy sources, and from 2030 Koreans will completely abandon internal combustion engines.
