Genesis Canada Reveals 2023 Electrified GV70 Prestige AWD
Genesis announced Canadian pricing and packaging for the 2023 Electrified GV70 Prestige AWD. The Electrified GV70 is the third electric vehicle from Genesis, following the launch of the GV60 luxury SUV and Electrified G80 sedan last year.
Genesis has committed that starting in 2025 all new models launched will be all-electric, and that its entire vehicle lineup will be electric by 2030. The brand made waves when it first hit the Canadian market in 2016 by offering set, all-inclusive pricing, a Genesis at Home concierge program for sales and service, complimentary scheduled maintenance, and a comprehensive five-year warranty on all vehicles.
Built upon the award-winning GV70 platform, the Electrified GV70 features a spacious, well-appointed interior and refined performance with a host of technologies designed exclusively for electric vehicles.
“The Electrified GV70 represents a significant milestone as we continue on our journey toward full electrification by 2030,” said Eric Marshall, director of Genesis Motors Canada. “We are pleased to be expanding our electric vehicle portfolio, particularly in a space where we see a significant opportunity for sustainable growth here in Canada.”
Powered by 160 kW electric motors in both the front and rear, total output is 320 kW (429 hp) and 516 lb-ft of torque. Engaging the Boost mode allows for a 10-second burst of 483 hp. The 77.4kWh battery found in Electrified GV70 is capable of rapid charging from 10-80 per cent in just 18 minutes when utilizing 350kW (800V) DC fast charging.
The interior is equipped with Nappa leather seating surfaces, microfiber suede headliner, head-up display, 3D instrument cluster, premium audio, active noise control – road, heated second row seats and steering wheel, manual rear side window shades, and an exclusive Mood lighting treatment.
