Genesis GV60 Performance AWD BEV 2023 Review

Is the Genesis GV60 EV any good

Genesis GV60 – Regular listeners will know that Brianna drove a Genesis GV60 a few months ago and loved it. Genesis GV60 EV 2023 front quarter I wanted the chance to spend some more time in it and last week I got to drive the Performance AWD model.

The GV60 is an all-new electric car only. It’s priced from a touch under $115,000 plus the usual costs so it’s a bit expensive, as most EVs are.

However, you get a lot for the money.

Its stylish, sleek and coupe like in exterior design. The interior is minimalist and functional. There are a bunch of clever and cool features like the digital cameras for rear view mirrors. They take a little getting used to but great once you do.

The fingerprint recognition seems technology for technology’s sake. Large, clear, and functional driver instrument cluster and central touch screen ensures you are well informed.

The GV60 is quiet, smooth, and responsive to drive. In performance mode it will do 4 second 0-100kmh times. This comes from the 77.4kwh battery with some 360kW of power and a healthy 700Nm of torque.

On a full charge its good for about 450km. Charging at fast chargers isn’t bad, but doing it at home on a normal 10AMP 240V plug tales forever.

Overall, like Brianna said a few months ago, I really liked the Genesis GV60.

Genesis GV60 EV – Some thoughts from Brianna and Will

The GV60 was a pleasure to drive.

The electric cars coming out of Genesis/Hyundai/Kia seem to be improving in their driving characteristics with every model they come out with.

The GV60 is a smooth drive and no longer has that feeling of breaking once you take the foot off the accelerator.

You could say it feel closer to a “normal” even though it’s electric.

It’s good size to comfortably drive 3 passengers.

As you would expect with genesis everything inside is modern from the infotainment system, dash, wireless charging port in the console which I love and heated seats. Not enough for me to want to buy but I’m definitely enjoying these electric cars more and more.

 

What is good?
