Genesis Electrified Gv70 Review

So, what’s the scoop for 2024 with the Electrified GV70? Well, not a whole lot’s changed, but hey, there are some cool updates. Every model is now rocking a Wi-Fi hotspot as standard. Oh, and if you’re into making a statement with color, you’re in luck! They’ve rolled out five snazzy new shades: Uyuni White, Matterhorn White, Alta White, Capri Blue, and Cardiff Green.

Let’s Talk Price & Picks

Let's Talk Price & Picks

Okay, diving into the dollars and sense of it, the 2024 Genesis Electrified GV70 kicks off at $67,800 and can climb up to $74,445, depending on how fancy you wanna get with trims and add-ons. Yeah, it’s a bit pricier than the gas guzzler version, but the EV doesn’t mess around鈥攊t skips the basic trim and heads straight for the high-end Advanced and Prestige levels. Right off the bat, it’s decked out with goodies like a digital gauge display, leather all over, 20-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, and a spot for wireless smartphone charging. Not too shabby, huh?

Power Play: EV Motor, Punch, and Handling

All models come with all-wheel drive standard, juiced by two motors (one per axle) that pack a combined punch of 483 horsepower. This baby can sprint to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds at our test track, making it the speed demon of the Genesis compact SUV family. Compared to the 2022 GV70 with its beefy twin-turbo V-6, which took 4.9 seconds to hit 60 mph, the Electrified version is seriously quick on its feet. It’s also a dream in the corners and keeps things smooth on the ride. If we’re nitpicking, the only quirk is the brake-pedal feel鈥攊t’s a bit uneven as it shifts from regenerative to friction braking. But hey, nobody’s perfect, right?

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

The Electrified GV70 packs a 77.4-kWh battery that the EPA estimates will get you up to 236 miles per charge. In real-world terms, during our highway testing, we saw about 190 miles before needing a juice-up. The cool part? This SUV is equipped with a fast onboard charger that peaks at 240 kW on a DC charging station, enabling a quick boost from 10% to 80% battery in under 20 minutes鈥攑retty snappy for those quick top-ups!

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPGe

If you’re eyeing efficiency, the EPA rates this electric SUV at 98 MPGe in the city and 83 MPGe on the highway. For the nitty-gritty on the Electrified GV70’s fuel efficiency, you might want to check out the EPA’s website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Inside, the Electrified GV70 mirrors its gas sibling’s setup, flaunting an upscale and chic design. The exterior鈥檚 sleek lines flow seamlessly into the interior, enhancing the cohesive aesthetic. Luxurious touches like the knurled glass shift knob elevate the experience. Space-wise, it’s on par with other compact SUVs, offering nearly the same cargo capacity as the gasoline model. It can handle up to seven carry-on suitcases in the trunk and a total of 22 when you fold down the rear seats.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Infotainment and Connectivity

At the heart of the dash is a large widescreen infotainment display running the latest Genesis software. While Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, note that they require a cable as they aren鈥檛 wireless. Plus, every model features a Wi-Fi hotspot, and you can opt for a premium Lexicon stereo system if you’re all about that sound quality.
