Gv60 takes a deep look into your eyes. Dont, get too excited its stare, isnt a romantic one. A small camera on the b pillar gives you a once over and then unlocks the doors once youre in theres. More getting to know you because to start it, you touch a fingerprint recognition button on the center console. The car is electric, though so, youre not really starting anything. The gv60 is genesiss first tv without an engine that wears to life. The telltale sign youve turned on the gv60, is that the glass like sphere in the center console rotates around to reveal a shifter, its a novel bit of design, and one we expect will soon spread to the rest of the genesis range. Like the other genesis models. The interior has a clean and uncluttered appearance, a glass panel as wide as the mississippi houses. Two 12.3 inch displays gauges directly ahead of the driver and a center touchscreen. Unfortunately, phone mirroring requires a cord, even as wireless systems are becoming the norm. One of the few missteps in the gv60 built on the egmp architecture, a dedicated ev platform shared with the kia ev6 and hyundai ioniq 5. The gv60 comes in a crossover shape and a sleek and attractive one at that. A clamshell hood hides a small storage space up front and behind the second row, theres 24 cubic feet of space enough for a full complement of luggage. The brand signature split headlight design makes an appearance, as does the winged badge, although its slimmer and less.

In your face than on other models, two versions will be available at launch. The advanced awd model has two electric motors, totaling, 314 horsepower and 446 pound feet of torque, while the all wheel, drive performance, trim, delivers 429 horsepower and 446 pound feet of torque. With a brief overboost of a 483 horses and 516 lbft available for 10 seconds of silliness, we drove the more powerful performance version and can report that from a stop with the overboost activated the front motor briefly overwhelms the front tires, despite the rears also being driven. Judging by the pressure on our spine under full whack, we expect that in 483 horsepower mode, the gd60 will shoot to 60 miles per hour in the mid threes, tackle a few bends and the gv60 corners securely and has a liveliness born of its quick steering. An electronic limited slit differential in back keeps power flowing to both sides of the road and the front to rear. Torque split lends a rear, drive attitude. The harder you push, though. The more youre made aware of the estimated 4900 pound curb weight as the michelin primacy. Toure s tires begin to audibly protest. A reagan system, thats capable of one pedal driving keeps the brakes from feeling. Much stress body control is good. The handling is porsche macon like except the genesis, doesnt fuzz with downshifts and upshifts. It just goes a camera based system that reads: the road surface keeps the adapted, dampers supple over bumps, quiet and refined.

The gd60 is a convincing luxury vehicle. If you drive, it calmly turn off the ridiculous and headache inducing jets and sound effects that whoosh and work in response to accelerator position and theres near silence. Thanks to the absence of road and wind noise, perhaps some credit is due to the active noise cancellation system with eight microphones that place through the audio systems 17 speakers, whether its the noise cancellation or the sound deadening or the aero package. The gd60 is a quiet machine, a 77.4 kilowatt hour battery provides 248 miles or 235 miles of epa range. A level 2 charger will replenish the battery from 10 to 100 in about seven hours hook up to an 800 volt dc fast charger, and the battery can go from 10 to 80 percent in a claimed 18 minutes. The advanced model starts at 59 980 dollars, which is roughly eleven thousand dollar more than this same powertrain in the hyundai ioniq five, but less than four thousand dollar more than the top limited trim.
