Genesis GV60 BEV SUV 2023 Review

Genesis GV60 – Last week I drove the spectacular Genesis GV60 electric SUV. And WOW what a car. The GV60 is exclusively an all electric SUV only.

The GV60 comes in two versions, the All Wheel Drive and the Performance All Wheel Drive which we drove.

First impressions is that the GV60 is particularly stylish from the outside with coupe like lines and even better inside.

Genesis is continually redefining affordable luxury boundaries for premium brands.

Inside are some really cool features such as digital mirrors, fingerprint recognition and 12.3 inch driver instruments and central touch screen.

The GV60 comes with a 77.4kWh battery and the performance pack some 360 kilowatts of power and 700 newton metres of torque. This will give sub 4.0 second 0-100kmh times.

Performance does come at the expense of range but still the GV60 is good for 450km plus on a full charge.

It will also recharge at an ultra rapid charging point in about 18 minutes from 10%-80% charge.

Genesis if offering a choice of either a 5-year Chargefox subscription or a home A/C charger and install, included in the GV60 purchase price from $103,700 plus the usual costs.

I have to say I really loved the Genesis GV60.
