Genesis Announces GV60 Electric Crossover
Genesis revealed exterior and interior images of GV60, the brand’s first electric vehicle based on the dedicated EV platform known as E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform), marking the brand’s first move towards electrification.
GV60’s exterior design highlights its high-performance image along with a dynamic and smooth appearance.
The front of GV60 features a design optimized exclusively for the electric vehicle. The distinct Two-Line Quad Lamps add character to a refined and voluminous body. A wider and more athletic Crest Grille has been placed below the Quad Lamps to emphasize the dynamic performance of the vehicle and to increase the cooling efficiency of the high-voltage batteries in the underbody.
In addition, Genesis has opted for a ‘Clamshell Hood’ for the first time, a single panel which combines the hood and fenders, creating a sleek impression for the EV model by removing lines between the parts. When viewed from the side, GV60 reveals the smooth and dynamic profile of a high-performance coupe. A simple yet sharp silhouette running from the front hood to the rear spoiler completes a more progressive character.
The interior design of GV60 takes on Genesis’ design ethos of the ‘Beauty of White Space,’ while seeking to create a spacious and comfortable interior. At the same time, it has embodied differentiated style with its floating architecture and unique details. The most noticeable feature in GV60’s interior design is the Crystal Sphere, a sphere-shaped Shift By Wire (SBW) that intuitively informs drivers when the vehicle is ready to drive. The floating console, where the Crystal Sphere is located, looks as if it is hovering in the air, working with other unique features such as the slim cockpit and flat floor to provide passengers with a maximum level of openness.
GV60’s North American deliveries are expected to begin in 2022.
