Genesis Impresses Again With the 2023 GV60 Compact Electric SUV
The luxury brand’s first EV-only model is sure to make a stir
In just a few short years, Genesis has quickly gained a reputation for building stylish luxury cars that deliver great value. Now the brand is releasing its first vehicle that’s been designed from the ground up to be electric. Called the GV60, it’s an SUV-like hatchback with standard all-wheel drive. It has a starting price that’s expected to be around $50,000, and can go up to 248 miles between charges, according to EPA estimates.
But even though the GV60 is a newcomer, that doesn’t mean it’s a total stranger to our test program. Genesis is Hyundai’s upscale brand, and the GV60 is essentially a fancier version of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6. All three use similar batteries, electric motors, and underlying designs. We purchased and are testing the Ioniq 5 and EV6, and we’re extremely impressed with them both so far. In fact, they’re such overachievers that we were initially skeptical that Genesis could find much room for improvement.
To find out, we rented two GV60s from Genesis before they even went on sale: an Advanced and a Performance trim. We spent the most time with the Advanced, which is the more mainstream of the two.
